We are in the midst of an outdoor project which I’ll show you more of when we’re a little closer to finishing. Now it looks like a bomb hit the front of our garage entrance. Not really something to be inspired by.
What I can show you though is a pretty clever, if I do say it myself, outdoor storage solution.
We have steps leading up to the front door. There was sort of a trellis there when we moved in but it was ugly, rickety and useless in terms of hiding stuff as the squares were about 8" (20cm). We built a new one with 2"(5 cm) squares. One side is fastened solidly underneath the steps but the other side is removable.
I simply drilled holes in some of the vertical pieces of the trellis and hammered fat nails into the 2×2’s we attached under the steps. The pre-assembled trellis is hung on the nails.
Because the squares are so small you can’t see what’s hiding inside the space. We keep extra roof tiles, the slate tiles we’re about to use in our project and a few other yard bits and pieces in there. Its’ easy to get to them but you don’t have to look at them all the time.
