The weather here is Kentucky has been unusually warm lately, and I have loved every minute of it!
I am so glad that Spring is finally here!
I’ve been “itchin" to do some Spring cleaning lately, but it’s kind of hard to do when you are in the middle of a major home renovation.
But one thing that I HAD to do quickly, because of the hot temperatures, was to clear out our winter clothing out of our closets and replace them with our Spring clothing.
For the boys, I was needing to head out to the shed and grab the tubs of hand-me-downs and go through them. Luke gets Jonathan’s clothes, Adam gets Luke’s clothes, Eli gets Adam’s clothes, and Jonathan gets nothin’! (He’s the lucky oldest child who always gets new clothes.)
When we moved in to our home last June, we literally threw a ton of stuff into our shed. I had no time to organize it.
I don’t think I have ever shown our shed on my blog. It’s nothing much to look at, is it? It is painted the most hideous colors I think I have ever seen in real life!
We are hoping to do a little makeover on our shed this summer. We’ll probably paint it to match our home.
Though our little shed it pretty ugly, it has been a huge help for us. I don’t know what we would do without it!
Since I hadn’t organized the shed since we moved in, when I went out to find the tubs of boys’ clothes, I had no idea where they were. I had to empty the shed of its entire contents to finally find the tubs I needed.
It was a total pain.
BUT it was beautiful outside, and it forced me to organize the shed.
When I opened the doors, my eyes quickly caught something in the back of the shed.
There are two tall wooden cabinets in the shed that were left by the previous owners.
I hadn’t really paid much attention to them because I figured they were full of junk or supplies.
But once I cleared everything out of the shed and got to look more closely at the cabinets, I found out they were completely empty!
They are dirty and need a new coat of paint, especially to cover up the little pictures of fruit on the front door…
But when I get my hands on these two cabinets, they are going to be PERFECT lockers for Jonathan and Luke’s room!
I love these wood lockers from Pottery Barn. I could easily paint my cabinets and stencil a number on the front like these.
Or maybe wrap them in beadboard and add some cool handles…
I also think it would be fun to paint them a bright color like red!
What do you think?
Do you like the little surprise I found in the shed?
Do you think they will look cute in the boys’ room?
