She Shed soil sifter gardening station sign

Back when the two garden themed stencils were developed, Grit Antiques came out with a She Shed project.

I didn’t make a stencil that said She Shed! Miss Clever Jane just got all creative with Shed and made it up.

Ever since that project, I vowed to do something She Shed-ish myself!

And today was the day.

You’ve seen this little soil sifter before, as a Super Market grocery magnetic board.

But I couldn’t pass up this easy little organizing idea… garden-themed in more ways than one.

Anyone else crazy for soil sifters? Or is this a drying rack? I really don’t even know. But anything wood and metal cage-ish is a-ok in my book!

1. Tape off any areas of the stencil you won’t be using.

2. Stencil SHED only.

3. Move the flower pot downwards to centre it on the board moreso, then stencil.

4. Create SHE out of shed on the left side of the sign.

And there you have it!

Because She was shorter than Shed, the MY was a nice little filler, helping keep the flowers centred.

MY is from the Welcome to my Garden stencil.

For installation, the soil sifter was attached to the wall first with screws through the mesh, but backwards. This is so the S hooks had some space to grab the wire.

Then the sign board was attached with screws, some hitting the sifter, some hitting the wall.

The sign board was left a little longer, providing more hanging space.

And now I really wish I had a pretty She Shed that looked this nice inside.

Guess I know what to build next…

  1. This just changed the direction of a project inside my almost-finished pantry! Was planning to use pegboard to hang my pans. Not any more!!
    Hardware cloth on a wood frame with S hooks, here I come! Thanks so much for the inspiration!!!

  2. I love how you draw from your stash and create. It is inspiring.

    For ages I have been admiring the wall rack bottle dryers, but not the prices. I have not seen a creative alternative in your archives, but may have missed it???

    Keep those creative juices flowing. Spring is here and it may be a great time to begin replenishing the stash from garage sales and flea markets. 🙂

    • Oh… thanks for the challenge Brenda! I’ve loved the bottle rack dryers for a long time, but wasn’t sure what to do with one. Guess I’ll invent an excuse to make one now! haha

      And thanks for the kind words!

      • Ever since I asked, I have been thinking about how to make a rack… a wall one. Wood strips, but the hooks have me stumped. Now that your wheels are turning, I will wait and see what you come up with. Can’t wait.

    • Another project I scoured your archives for was a tiered tray made out of old cake tins/pie plates/discs. Most I have seen are rustic, but I always love your “take” as it is always above and beyond, then styled to perfection.

  3. Love your site. The she shed is something on my bucket list. Your so creative. Thanks for sharing.🤗🤗

  4. Love it Donna! And I was wondering what hardware cloth is? It’s always interesting to see how you incorporate your stencils in a myriad of ways. Thanks so much.

    • Thanks Joanne! Where was the reference hardware cloth used? I’ve reread the post and cannot find… am I blind? I don’t know what it is either! haha

      Update: found it in a comment! It looks sorda like chicken wire but in squares. If you google search it, it comes up pretty easily.

      Who knew! 🙂

  5. good morning Donna.
    I checked out the brush link, but it is an add on. Are there other brushes you recommend?
    I have been using Robert Simmons brushes for years, I mean the same brushes I bought years ago. Some of them are wearing down, but I was hesitant to buy them now as I wondered if the quality would be the same.

    Anyway, glad to see you have recommended some and they are Cheap!
    (Not so with the other one I mentioned)

    thanks for the help.

    blessings!
    Barb

    PS cuuuute project. I have one of those screens, but never knew what it was for.

  6. You mentioned using Tough Coat on your new headboard for your bed. Is it a particular name brand, or will a matte finish polyurethane water base product offer the same protection. You were using it to stabilize the flaking paint on your boards… Thanks.
