This is how it looks now.
Here is how it looked when I had it built a couple years ago. (With my fake window hanging on the outside.)
Here is how it looked last year after I found a perfect window on craigslist and hubby installed it for me.
I have now built shutters (from new and old wood), a window box (from scraps), and a cupola (from old louvered shutters, leftover shingles, scrap wood, and some new wood). My hubby made the lead cap on the tippy-top of the cupola (from garage sale material) and he also installed the cupola, cause I dont do heights.
This is how it looks now.

My potting shed is still evolving. In addition to the exterior stuff, I have paneled the inside with old paneling we found in our attic.  I'm not sure if there's anything else I can do to it, but I'll probably think of something.

No new pics of the interior, but there are some old ones here:
