The Potting Shed

H and I have been working in the back yard this morning and I wanted to show you our progress.    We are having a party later, so I have lots of pillows and linens out.
I freshened the existing wreath on the potting shed and added our initial to the door.  

I purchased the initial at HL ($10, half price)  The rose was kind of a orange color so I painted it pink and also added a little more bling to it! 
This is the view of the potting shed that I can see from the kitchen window.
I placed this chandy in a concrete planter and repurposed it !  It now holds birdseed in three plates and water in the other two. 



H painted this old bicycle white....


you saw her a few weeks ago on my post about all the junk behind the studio!  Her color before was blue and "rust".. 


Here is the potting shed reflecting in a mirror that is in front of the studio.   I will have a post on the studio showing her newly painted brick and redo later...see you then!
