Our Toy Shed Renovation begins {disgusting rotted doors}

Someone emailed me the other day and said, “is everything in your house perfect?” I don’t know if that was someone poking fun or if that was someone legitimately curious if we have disaster zones. I had to laugh because if “you” only knew what our outside storage sheds looked like. A couple weeks ago my dad and I started the Toy Shed Renovation project. It should have been done along time ago considering the hinges were completely rotted. It took the door falling on my son last month to give us the motivation to replace the doors. He was not hurt but nonetheless, it was time to get rid of them.

This shed is underneath part of our covered porch. It’s a fairly large space and perfect for toys. You can see I added some makeshift shelving last year. What a mess huh? The hinges were completely rotted.

This toy shed wasn’t exactly on our priority list, can you tell? The doors were made about 30 years ago when my parents moved in out of pressure treated wood. It took about 29 years for them to get to this point so not bad if you consider they have been hanging for 30 years.

My dad and I removed all the rotted wood which took a couple hours.

My grandfather doesn’t do much heavy lifting, mostly supervises and laughs at us.

Once we got the old doors and rotted wood removed, we hauled it out to the trash. I think we picked one of the hottest days to do this project.

This is what we found, shims galore!

I said to my dad, what are all those pieces of wood inside the wall? He said, “hmmm, I must have needed a few shims 30 years ago when I made this shed”. ha. All the rotted wood and old doors have been removed and now we need to make some new doors and cleanup the inside. Phase one of our toy shed renovations begins. Thank goodness the rot is gone! Stay tuned.

  1. hehehe. I must have needed a few shims. I got a kick out of that! I’m sure this little shed will be so cute when you’re done I’ll want to move in 😉 I sure loved that pool house makeover!

  2. At least cute Gramp was wearing long pants – in fact they look like new jeans!
