Welcome to the second installment of my summer Outdoor Spaces Event!
IDEA #2 Cute Storage
Okay, to be honest this example is more decoration than anything, BUT it would still be cute if you had stacks of pots, more hand tools, twine, and other gardening supplies. And since the odds are good that I will forget to water these plants, I will probably end up with mine full of those things :)
I bought the crates at a craft Store (Micheal's) for less than $10.00 each. Use your coupon and it would be even less :) They come unfinished so you can stain or paint them however you want. It is a good idea to seal anything you paint that will be outdoors. I use Minwax's Helmsman outdoor sealer.
These would be cute on your porch, the back of your house, or heck...even inside your house!
Hang them vertical, horizontal, have a large grouping or even just one. The sky is the limit!
Think of other ways to create attractive storage for other items too. If you have kids then you probably have toys everywhere. A pool? Then you have pool supplies. Think outside the box for creative ways to store your items.
If you have a shed then make it cute by painting it a fun color, adding shutters, and putting some flower pots by the door. Sheds don't have to JUST be functional.
Oh, and to avoid a bunch of emails.... The colors are Krylon's Ocean Breeze, Almond, and Pistachio.
Tomorrow I will share another simple idea of how to decorate your outdoor spaces for not a lot of money.
