I had such high hopes for working on my work shed last week. I had big plans.
And then it rained. All week. Seriously. I was pondering building an ark.
We ended up getting half of the metal roof on the shed, with the other half covered by a water/ice shield until the rest of the roof could go up.
This week, the sun is shining and progress is being made!
The rest of the roof went up today! Isn’t that red metal roof pretty?!?
The rest of the repairs will happen this week: removing and replacing the rotten wood with HardiePlank and PVC trim, fixing the doors, etc. Then I’ll have to decide on a paint color and get it painted!
In the meantime, during all the rain, I decided to look for some tool storage and shed inspiration – ideas for mainly the inside of the shed.
Since I keep tools and paint in the shed, I loved this wall o’ storage from The Creativity Exchange:
Isn’t that amazing? It makes my little organization-loving heart sing with joy.
The interior of my work shed already has shelves. I just need to add pegboard for hanging storage.
Some hooks for paint brushes of various sizes:
I love this tool cart from Gail at My RePurposed Life:
I have the same RYOBI One+ tools and batteries, so I love how there’s a place for each one – hanging the drills, shelves for batteries and saws.
For my work table, I like this table from The Family Handyman, which combines wood storage and a work surface:
I don’t think it’d be too hard to build.
For easier to find/make wood storage, I could use a pallet like this:
There’s a ton of construction going on in my neighborhood. I bet I could find a pallet lying around.
I thought this was a creative idea for keeping a toolbox organized!
I’ve got a ton of Rust-Oleum chalkboard paint, so I could totally do this to my toolbox.
And, just to add a pretty touch to my shed, I think I’ll build some flower boxes for the windows.
What do you think? Anything you would add to make your work shed perfect?

I was like McGyver. Seriously – one of my best ideas, ever.
