For our last day of Spring Cleaning Week we are heading outside! We teamed up with Lifetime Products to take control of my overflowing garage and the answer was simple, time for a shed! The situation at my house is this: my husband is not only a contractor (tools everywhere you look) but he’s also a hobbyist mechanic and a sports lover. Our boys have bikes and scooters and toys and then we have those little things called cars to think about, too. We have amassed a ton of stuff and here was our answer.. Ride-on toys, sports stuff and yard gear got upgraded to this beauty.My number one reasoning for this split was a strong desire to get all the kids toys out of the garage and away from the cars. We’ve had a few friends and friends of friends deal with fatal accidents in their own driveways and I felt like if I could make it so my kids had no reason to be playing and running in and out of the garage all day (like they were doing!) then that would be a good improvement. So, their bikes, scooters, sports toys all came to the shed.The second plan for the shed was all our yard and garden gear! I started with this peg-board and added a little graphic element by taping off the triangle shapes and then spray painting the bottom half black. Garden tools. hoses, yard wellies, gloves, watering cans and my giant brimmed hat just like my mom wears in her garden. We spend a ton of time in our yard once the garden is sprouting so having the shed right there is going to a welcome change from trekking to the garage for supplies and tools.
I was so excited to get our scooter and dirt bike into the shed and still have plenty of space for whatever else we needed to add. All our sports gear made its way to the shed as well. Balls, bats, rackets, nets, all things I am happy to be done tripping over! Basically anything we use outdoors is here now.If you’re looking for a way to add functionality without losing curb appeal to your outside storage Lifetime is offering Small Fry readers 10% any of the sheds on their site!
