Shedding some light!

Or should I say, lightening up the shed? LOL! Just look at this embarrassing pile of junk! This all came out of our backyard shed! We cleaned it out this weekend. This is a couple of years worth of junk from every family member. We have an old broken fish aquarium, an old bird cage, a broken card table, old boards, old motors, old patio furniture, etc. Yuck! How do these things accumulate?
It filled the back of Eric's big truck! Now it is off to the dump.
Yea, it's all cleaned up now!
Here's the shed now! I wish I would have taken a before picture! I know it still looks junky, but it really isn't. There is an order to it!
Grayson and his friend Garrett use this area as their work bench for their inventions. You can see his gas powered remote control car sitting there.We use it for a potting shed and this is where I keep all my porch and deck seasonal decorations.
I have lots of fun things here! You can see my fall decorations, and some of the Easter things. I think it's time I get out my 4th of July things!
We put candles in these old cheese graters and they make the best luminaries. They are very rustic and cute. They are a perfect way to light the way of our path to our nighttime parties.
Above is a little chair that I just couldn't throw away. My mother and father bought Mackenzie and Cameron a little table and chairs set. We used it for all the boys for many years. Eventually they outgrew it and it got moved out to their fort. The rest of the set was broken and thrown out, but I saved this little chair.

I hope I didn't bore you with these pictures of our garden shed!

You did a great job cleaning out your garden shed, Sharon! The little chair is sweet...I would keep it too. I also love all of your cheese graters. Such a great idea to use them for luminaries!

Doesn't it make you feel wonderful to clean things up? I know it does for me! Sharon, put that little chair on your porch and put a plant on it, real, or fake, who cares? Or put it up in your new guest room with a little suitcase under it, or on the seat, with a few of your children's books. Don't hide it!

You need to write a book and start doing some classes on all the stuff you do, you are a natural.

You are certainly busy these days - fixing up your guest room, cleaning out the shed.....
That little chair is so great. Someday one of your kids will be married and have a child, and it can come out of storage to be used for the grandchild. We have chairs that our kids used - and then the grandkids enjoyed them.
Makes it fun to see them in the generations!

Boy you are just one project after another. Your beautiful guest room and now this quaint shed I wouldn't mind a little tour just to look at all your goodies out here. You definitely have good taste even in the shed. I love the idea of the luminaries. It looks so nice and organized. I have been working my head off unfortunately it is not at home it is at work, UGH.
Have a beautiful day
