Today’s perfect weather left me no choice.
It was a great day to work outside, so I (we) did!
First thing, I mowed — on the diagonal, like at the ballpark.
Oh, how long have I waited for a re-do of that porch of ours
+ for the chance pop a few (dozen) plants into the ground!
Today’s project, however, was to turn our garden shed into a she shed.
Yeah. That’s a thing. She sheds.
Here’s what it looks like now:
Here’s what it looked like when we bought our house:
OMiGosh! How nasty!
First up in the re-do — a new roof:
To charm things up a bit, I ordered a pair of metal finials
Much better, am I right?
Yes, they’re just what that shed roof needed!
Oh, + I forgot to mention — at some point, we painted the exterior
Benjamin Moore’s Blue Spruce.
Those hiddy original doors still await their makeover,
but I know what I want, + I will share soon, promise.
So. Today we worked inside.
These shelves held (just a fraction of) G.O.’s “valuables”
+ if I was to have myself a she shed, they had to move to the garage.
He offered to give me one of those Rubbermaid masterpieces,
but I said I couldn’t possibly take one!
Given the choice, don’t we always go with something vintage?
Yes, we do, + here we have it —
some really swell old shelves from my old booth space.
Got ’em from the curb! Score!
Check out the chippy white metal shelves!
Here ’tis, sporting some of my gardening supplies.
Disclaimer: It doesn’t look like this now, as I’ve tweaked it a bit.
Updated photos in the a.m., promise.
My next storage item is made from yet more vintage happiness —
these wonderful yellow metal saw horses:
Aren’t they great?
Disclaimer, the sequel: it’s all been redone a couple times.
That’s how I roll!
See you in the a.m. for some updated snappies!
