When you complete a fencing project, it is always a challenge to find a use for the fencing material left at the end of a roll. I was about to tuck a small roll of vinyl-covered fencing into a corner of the garden shed, when I realized that it could be used to store small garden tools.
I loosely stapled some of the 2-by-3-inch mesh fencing to the inside of the shed door frames. To store trowels and similar tools, I just poke the handles through the mesh. I used vinyl-covered garden wire to make hooks to hang items that won't fit into the mesh.
