I took a few days off (3 to be exact) from the magazine business and celebrated the new year by building the little shed I needed for storage. Of course, I didn't want just an ordinary shed but something that would look as it had always been there.
It's on the concrete pad (which I used as the base) on the other side of the guest house. I had saved the old window, door, and copper awning when I demolished the garage. So glad I did!
The little shed is build with plywood painted to look old (like the "planks" in the guest house.)
I also saved the leftover pavers from the courtyard and used them to do the shed's floor. As for the interior I have to find the right pieces but must remind myself that it is a STORAGE shed NOT a little house and MUST not think "decorating".....hum......that's going to be tough!
I know you are going to ask so here you go: The little "nest" in the right corner is made from Spanish moss and the little egg isn't real. it's just for looks. The old sign over the door came from a junk shop (about 20 years ago!!) and the mirror came from a flea market in France. The sweet stone cherub was a gift.
The roof is tin but it's hard to see. I will have to take a photo. Still have to paint the back and add little shutters and curtains to the window (in the back.)
On to the "furnishing" part soon..................................
