I wanted a place to keep the lawn and garden items. It seems like I have hose nozzles, rakes and shovels everywhere. This was fun/aggravating because I didn't have plans; I went off the top of my head. I am happy with how it came out but there are a few things that didn't come out right that will always bother me. But I guess that is how it goes. I am torn on if I should put doors on the front of the broom and rake storage area. It will give it a more finished look, so I probably will; I will update if I do.
