Here’s how you can revamp the whole garden shed from drab to fab and give it a new life! And the makeover also provides for some amazing storage provisions and displays for all your garden tools and supplies. The chief element for the storage is a large pegboard that’s customized with a painted pattern worked up with the help of some stencils. Lots of 2×4 studs and plywood walls help to revamp the shed, letting you screw hooks into the wall studs and string twine between each hook to hold tall yard tools.

Some old wire shelves added to the storage, while weed trimmers and leaf blowers have got pieces of wood screwed between two studs. The pegboard and shelves can hang or hold seed spreaders, sprinklers, watering cans and garden caddies. Acrylic organizers attached to the peg boards hold some nitty gritty supplies, having tiny labels make it easy to find what’s stored where. The extra touches of finesse come with clean-up buckets and plastic rolling carts. The above features already are amazing enough, but this inspiration by I Heart Organizing adds a bunch of tiny tool storage solutions throughout the shed.
