My Little White Potting Shed

This is our potting shed!!  We have collected doors from all over ...Kentucky, New York, Texas, New Mexico, Missouri, you get the idea!  Our original shed had 9 doors and several windows.  Then we added on two "wings" for a total of 12 doors and some more windows!!  



This was originally a free standing door seat.


This used to be the front door at our previous house.  I had steciled it with pink roses!  You can see a reflection of the studio in the far right window.  The studio is where I do all my crafts and store seasonal items.  

Here is a pic of the inside.  I need to get more photo's of the inside, but I did this post in a hurry for White Wednesday!! 

If you look thru the window, you can see my wicker desk and chair where I do all my planning for the yard!!! lol

I store birdcages and houses in here that are not in use!

The two front doors came from a barn sale in Kentucky a few years ago when we were on the Longest Yard Sale!

This is how she looked before we added on the two rooms!!!

I threw in a flower photo just to add some white color to the post!!!!


And you ask "why does she have a photo of a cat in this post???"  Welllll, because the "east wing' of the garden shed is where the cats sleep.  This is Alex, he is quite the ham!!!

This is Gracie. She wanted to know what I was doing with that camera. And the cutie in the back is Spice!!

You can just see the corner of the potting shed before we added on!

I hope you enjoyed seeing our potting shed!

  20. Love your potting shed. I have been asking for a few years for my hubby to build me one. We have stacks of windows in storage and a door or two. I know he can do it he just needs to make the time. Popping over from Debbiedoos.

  32. I saw you over at Ivy & Elephants and I love your potting shed. I was very interested in your profile, Miss Penny! How interesting that you have created such a beautiful life. A testimony that you don't need to leave your roots to blossom. I quite envy those who still live in my home town of Concord, California.

  37. Oh Penny, you have me drooling here sweetie! I have plans to build an outbuilding next Spring. At first I was going to build a play house, but have been leaning towards a potting shed as of late. Thinking I could have a small play area at one end for the grandies. (Grandma kind of promised) lol! Your little cottage has so much charm. I have already found a dutch door and been saving lots of old windows. Hope mine turns out half as sweet as yours. Thanks for sharing at Share Your cup.
    Hugs,
    Jann
