All Moved In.... Almost!


I am most of the way moved into my new garden shed. I found a lot of my tools and garden musts and hung them on the pegboard. I added things to my lower shelf and organized it all as I went. I plan to use the shelf for starting seeds next year. I would like to hang grow lights to the under side of the counter and have my trays there until time to harden off out doors. I would still like to buy a little more pegboard organizing stuff so that everything has it's own perfect spot. Buying before building turned out pretty well though.







I quickly realized I have more little hand rakes than one girl needs. I think I picked them up for several years in a row when I wasn't as organized. My husband also keeps bringing me things that he thinks a garden shed ought to have. On the opposite wall, I would still like to install hangers of some kind to hang up my long handled tools like shovels, rakes, and the like. Maybe another shelving unit for more storage.



















I also added some potting soil to the bin, more for show than for anything. I even got a cool vintage ice scoop (?). Also a gift from the man shop side of this building.
The finger is still very sore, not nearly as bad now that I hand drilled my little pressure relief hole. That was pretty high up on my hardest things to do list. I really don't believe man was meant to bore holes into his body (other than ear piercing). Pretty sure the nail will be gone shortly but as I've been told.... it could have been worse.

  1. Hi Heather~~ You lucky gal. All that space and a hubby buying you things. Does it get any better? Glad to hear your finger is healing. No mention of the starvation diet but you sound good so maybe you're beyond the initial stages. Hopefully. I hope it's warming up so you can get outside.

  5. Oh wow, I am so jealous. I have a shelf unit in my garage...lol. I guess I could have the whole basement, but I'd be up and down the stairs too much! Luck girl! Is is wired for high speed? Lol...Brooke

  6. Heather, throw down some sawdust or dirt anything to make it a tad bit messy. Everything looks great. Hope that finger is getting better.

  7. Hi Heather, wished I had that great working area! My hand tools are in plastic storage tubs all over the garage but I can never find what specific tool I'm looking for so end up buying many duplicates too! Love your post on Ollie..man he's chubby but cute! Have a great weekend!

  9. Your shed looks fantastic, Heather! And I love the idea of adding grow lights under the bench. Now you need to show us the "other side"---the guy side---so we can see what's going on there!

  15. It really would be nice to have all the garden tools organized and know where to find everything. We can dream can't we?

  16. Very nice! and so organized. I agree on the long handled tools, they are the hardest thing for me to store neatly...my garden shed has a slanted roof, so no room to hang them. If you have place for everything then things are more likely to be returned to their proper place when you're done using it.

    Enjoy - Happy Spring!

  19. Surely this is all wrong. A shed should be a place of dark inaccessible corners where tools play hide and seek; an eerie place of forgotton implements where various invertebrates (some possibly venemous) lurk ready to land on unsuspecting visitors. Where's the mystery? Where's the danger? Where's the mess?!

  20. I love your garden shed! It's fantastic! What a fantastic place to meditate over seedlings! Do you have a grow light yet? That's on my wishlist for the coming years!
