Shed Organization | Inside my DIY Shed

June 29, 2021

Last year my dad and I built a shed in my backyard. We started with what was originally a storage pad for wood that was in my yard when I bought the house. I had the wood stove removed, it wasn't up to code anyway, and so I didn't need a place to store wood... but I did need a shed!


I have never shared the inside of the shed once I decorated and got all my yard tools, etc. arranged inside. Yes... I decorated inside the shed 😂 I can't help it, I want to decorate everything!!


So today I thought it was high time that I finally show you!

Looking for some ideas for organizing and decorating a garden storage shed? I've got some great ideas here!

First, you can see how this shed started out (the wood storage pad) and how we moved it from the center of the yard over to the corner: The Great Pergola Move.

Then check out how I fixed it up here: Backyard Pergola Fix-Up.

It was pretty cute but sort of useless too... it would have been a great bus stop!! 😂


And finally, see how we moved it one more time and then transformed that into my new backyard shed, it's the ultimate repurpose project! Building a Backyard Shed - Former Wood Storage Area.


This shed is definitely unique! We dropped the main floor down from the old wood storage pad so that I can stand up straight inside and we just built off the roof of that old structure. All of my yard tools like rakes, shovels, etc. are up on the original platform.

On the right, I put the old green hutch bottom that I use for storage. On the bottom shelf are things like gas cans, weed killer, and a tub full of fertilizer, grass seed, etc.


There are tarps rolled up on the middle shelf and things like sprinkler parts in the drawer. There is also an old apple crate next to the hutch and a small pallet turned on end to hold other odds and ends like landscape fabric.

I hung up a piece of old wire fencing and bent up the bottom pieces to act as hangers for some things and I clipped some seed packets on with large, decorative clothespins. The "Urgent Care" box is something I painted years ago and it holds extra sprinkler heads, rope, gloves, etc.

We built some narrow shelves into the walls of the shed for smaller items.

All of my yard tools are up on the old part of the shed and I put my lawnmower on the left. The pool noodles are so that I don't smack my head on the low parts of the old roof... because believe me... I have!

The patch of astroturf is something I had and thought why not? 😁 Otherwise, it would just be rolled up in the corner.

I put a vintage edger up on the top of the wall and hung up a burlap sack I had.

From this view, you can really see the clear roof! There is no electricity out here so I thought the clear roof would be good to ensure it's not just a black hole inside.

Here's a view of the different stages of this shed!

It would be really cool to have a she-shed with a clear roof but unfortunately, I needed a garden shed for storing all my lawn stuff more!


I hope you enjoyed this post and can see how even a backyard garden shed can be organized and beautiful!

  1. I remember when you posted this impressive shed expansion that you did with your dad. Smart idea using the clear panels on the roof for light. I wish we had done that on ours. I like your idea of using an old dresser for shed organization too.

    1. Thank you Vikki! The pool noodle is definitely a must have, I can't tell you how many times my dad and I both smacked our heads when we were building the shed! Ouch!!

    1. Oh, the mailbox! I keep meaning to stick that back in the ground to hold garden tools like I did at my old house here: https://www.littlevintagecottage.com/2014/06/weekend-yard-work-mailbox-garden-tool.html
      Right now it has the tools in it but still needing to get it out and in the ground!

  7. I love your little shed!! I have watched from the beginning and just enjoyed it’s coming along. I want to know also what you do with your mailbox. I have one just like and really can’t decide how to use it. Hugs,

    1. Thank you Sandi! Here is what I plan to do again with that mailbox: https://www.littlevintagecottage.com/2014/06/weekend-yard-work-mailbox-garden-tool.html. This is how I had it at my old house and I just haven't put it back up. Now that I have the shed in place where it will be staying, I'm going to put it back up! Right now the tools are in it but it needs to be put on a post outside!
