Dressed up the garden shed for the holidays! It is a slow process, but it is coming along nicely. I now have a potting bench, shelves and pegboard in place on the inside. The outside is now painted Chatroom and eventually the door will be painted black. Family was coming for the holidays and we did a quick paint job for now. One day I hope to have siding put on to match my house and there will be LIME GREEN somewhere! I even have windows I found as roadside treats to be put in one day, hopefully.
I feel like a little girl with a playhouse.
I used an old garden claw rake for the door handle to the shed. I think it needs a little something else added for balance, however. The arched piece on the door was my husbands idea and I think it adds interest. Not sure what it is exactly, but since it was iron and wood it had to be mine for $5 at a yard sale.
Since windows are not put in yet, I placed a decorative mirror window on the outside. It was a quick fix, but it looks like a window until you take a closer look. Its really very pretty and I may never move it.
Another window shot...the window boxes that have been in the storage shed for about 3 years, now have a home.

This is a garden shed I bought off of craigslist. The fellow I bought it from delivered it and set it up, all for an unbelievable price. I am going to have sooo much enjoyment getting it in shape. It will not always live it's life in pink. I am trying to decide to paint it to match my house...which by the way is in a color called "Chatroom", or to use my favorite wild colors of lime green, teal and black  ...I do have neighbors however.

Have fun giving it your style.

Me--I only have a corner of the garage to do my junking, gardening and such so a place of my own would be terrific. You go girl!!
