So this isn't the first time I've posted about my little garden shed. But this summer we really went to town on it and I'm excited to share how we brought it back to THE WAY IT WAS! Like WAY back in the day! :) I LOVE IT!!!!!
Here's how it looked back in 2014 when we bought the place:
We cleaned it up and I tried to "cutify" it.... but it needed a new roof, so we started there since we had extra metal left over from the cabin. The boys climbed on up for shingle tear-off since I assigned this task as their job. Dad pitched in!
Next thing that needed to happen was that awful aluminum siding needed to come off to expose that adorable narrow wood siding! I just knew it would be under there since we did the same thing to the gatehouse and ohhhhhhh I love how cute the gatehouse turned out! So what if it will need to be painted again in a few years (says I now....)
Here's Brockstar, the boy I watch before and after school who loves to help me on outdoor projects!
He's much easier to get work out of than my own boys!
Well well, what do you know? Seems every building here has a hidden window that was covered up by aluminum siding! Even the house! So I guess this shouldn't have been a surprise to find....
Thankfully, I have a "window stash" so Tim found one to fit that came off the tenant house when we replaced those and was able to install it. So much nicer to have some light in the shed since it isn't wired for lighting and the door always swings shut on me, trapping me in the dark with all those big and hairy, scary spiders!!! I CAN SEE YOU NOW, SPIDEYS!
I got ahead of myself because I wanted to show you the window!
Here's my Ty the Guy working on painting!
So I'd love your advice on the door!
Probably some of you are already saying "SHE FORGOT TO PAINT THE DOOR!"
No.... I thought the chippy white paint on that old door was super cute and I just couldn't bring myself to cover it up!
My mother cringes when she sees it.
What do you think???
Clean, white and fresh? Or Shabby chic and quaint?
I pulled that off of a pile of garbage on the curb I think....
And my scrappy rag wreath has lived through several winters - first at our old house and now here on my garden shed.
The flag is made from old lath boards from house renovations.
Here's a little panoramic view from the house. Cabin on the left, garden shed in the middle, root cellar on the right and if you look close, you'll see the windmill in the top right corner!
What did that look like before?
here you go:
Wow! These photos make me smile. :)
Thanks for stopping in!
Sorry I'm not giving you a peek into the inside! Not organized enough for THAT. :)
