Outdoor Summer Station

“Mom, I’m hungry..” ….”Mom, I’m hot….” , “Mom, I already did my chores…” ahhhhh, the sweet sounds of summer are approaching. We are left with just 2 short weeks in our school year. I can almost taste the freedom (freedom from homework ;) This weekend I decided to do a bit of organizing in the garage. I posted last year about giving this little area a bit of a freshen up with my free changing table I found on the side of the road. Here is that post….

I used the changing table to hold all our summer stuff…here is the lowdown on the Stoll Summer Station….


I printed some super cute tags for the sunscreen, flip flop and goggle containers. I found it on BHG (BHG printable) . You just have to sign up to use the free download. I love a cute tag…don’t you;) The little silver buckets were in my basement..and the white plastic container was in the garage.

So now when the kids say…I’m off to the pool with a friend….all the things they need are all in the same place. My pool bag has a place to land after a day at the pool. Let’s see how long it stays this organized ;) The idea is that there is a place for everything.


I used simple screw in hooks to hold the buckets and container. When summer is over I can easily take everything down for the next year.



Cute tags always make it look organized. Even if it doesn’t stay that way ;)




I got a bit crazy with the tags and decided to label my paint cans too….yes, I have issues ;) All harmless though!!


How do you stay organized in the summer? Have any great tips? Do tell….

  1. Great idea! Everything could be exchanged for winter items when the seasons change.

  2. So adorable!!!! I want to do this bad!

  3. […] used the same template from BHG ( I love this little tag). It is the same tags from the Summer storage project. I just printed out tomatoes and cucumber. I “laminated” them with some packaging tape […]

  4. This looks so cute! What a fun way to organize all your summer stuff.

  5. Very cute! I’d love for you to add it on my link party at: Thanks!

  6. I like that the old baby changing table is up-cycled storage!
