Outdoor Chalkboard Paint To Spruce Up The Shed

A month or two ago I wrote about our shed design – here, here and here.

I was very lucky to have a friend of mine, who is a shop Teacher, build it for us with his class.

I wanted a shed that would be relatively lightweight and portable. It has made it’s journey home, but we have not assembled it yet. When we do, it will be at the campsite and I will document the assembly process – for those of you who are curious about the design.

In the meantime, I wanted to share with you how we spruced up the shed with outdoor chalkboard paint.

A Must-Have Storage Solution

Trailer storage solutions and organization is a hot topic for a lot of recreational vehicle enthusiasts.

We have owned 3 trailers in the past 10 years and with each trailer I have made it my goal to get the best use of space out of each nook and cranny. So much so that my camping friends have – let’s say – noticed!

Pest Preparedness and Winter Storage

You know someone who has gone through this:

Enthusiastically, they opened up the door to their trailer, which had been in storage for the winter. They slowly entered the trailer and saw the horror – tiny little black “pebbles” scattered throughout the trailer.

Storage Solutions For Our Trailer

I hate shopping and I have a minor case of undiagnosed OCD. Yep, that’s me in a nutshell!

It makes for a lovely situation when camping in a confined space with 3 other people and all of the crap stuff that the four us have deemed as a necessity.

I cannot handle clutter in our trailer, so I get creative with storage solutions.

On a recent trip to IKEA, I picked up a few items to help contain the clutter.

Shed Dilemma

So the next thing that we needed to figure out was a storage solution for items that we would be leaving at the campsite.

  • It needed to be durable, so that it would last multiple seasons.
  • It had to be portable, as we are extended stay campers who need to take everything off of their sites at the end of the season.
