The dreaded day came.... the once yearly event... the day when you really would prefer to be watching paint dry!! Yes, that's right... yesterday was the day I had to 'sort out the shed!'

My garden shed is only pretty small, but this is made worse by the fact I actually have two sheds. One of which I intend to knock down very shortly. So, Ive got to try and get the contents of two very messy sheds into one, whilst still being able to get in and out of it!

After ripping everything out of the garden shed that's staying, it became clear straight away that there's just far too much crap in there! A man's shed is his sacred place... somewhere that women rarely dare to venture... except to dump more crap on top of the crap they dumped there the weekend before

I had to get some shelves.... a trip to B&Q was a waste of half an hour! They had absolutely no decent shelving in stock! I did pickup a few climbing plants though... a job for later this afternoon

Second stop... Argoos! Result : 5-tier plastic shelving for £20 a pop. I'll take two please!!

Back at home, the shelving was built whilst supping a bottle of Kronenberg. (don't you just love spring/summer!) Next... the decisions about what to put back in the shed and what to throw away! There's a hell of a lot of stuff for someone to sell on a car boot now, or throw on Ebay!

The end result is pretty good though... there's still a lot of sorting to do, but atleast I can now walk in and out of the shed and get my hands on almost everything I need, fairly quickly

Still reckon I need a bigger shed though... watch this space! Muhahaha...

    looks quite organised and accesible now!

    My dad has 1 wooden shed at the bottom of the garden, not sure whats in it as when you open the door stuff falls out and its a nightmare getting it backin.

    2 big plastic ones at the side of the house, full of more stuff. 1 small plastic one on the other side which i have all my detailing stuff in, a spare fish tanks and other general crap of mine. There there is another small one with the spare fold away chairs in!

    Seems my dad can;t have too many sheds!

    Looks like you have got it all sorted in there now... bet when you get home on monday suie will have a stack of things in the conservatory for you to put into the shed to fill it back up!

    My back garden is better than yours!


    The green isnt grass, the concrete has just gone that colour, maybe your meant to sweep them every so often?

    Arrgh I hate sheds! We need a bigger one.. house is too small there for we need a bigger shed to "dump stuff" we have no room for in the house.

    Btw you have the same lawnmower as me haha!

    Put the cable in the grass tray then you can fold it up (if you havent already lol) saves alot of space tbh.

    Why don't you add some colors on it or made a a palette and put it below the window of the Shed.
