Do you have any baskets in your house that could use a little sprucing up?
Not every home has a large yard, garage or shed to store tools, outdoor toys, and patio furniture. That doesn’t mean small spaces can’t be beautiful and functional, though. Make the most out of outside storage space – from sheds and beyond – even when there’s not much space to spare.
