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.

Drawer Organization

You realize how important organization is when you are spending several months of the year in a living space of 300 square feet.

But wait, it’s not only one person in the confined quarters – it’s 2 adults, 2 kids, 1 dog and 1 cat.

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.

To watch T.V. or not to watch T.V. at the campsite? That is the question.

It seems misguided to consider watching television while at the campsite. The whole point of camping is to experience the great outdoors – to unplug – to connect with the family.

We would have never have thought about our television options for the campsite in previous years, but our camping style is changing this summer. We are going to be spending the majority of the summer at the campsite, so it may be “handy” to have a plan B – in case it rains!

So what is one to do? No, really, what is one to do?

This week has been a crazy work week, this is an understatement, which explains why I haven’t been adding much in terms of quality content lately.
