New Look for our Multipurpose Garden Shed

Our little Tuff Shed is one of the most functional structures in the back yard.     In the winter,   it houses outdoor furniture, garden tools,  flower pots.....etc.    In the spring,  H brings all the furniture outdoors and the shed has plenty of room in it to do double duty as a Potting Shed.     

Right next door to the Garden shed is a second Tuff Shed that H uses as a Tool Shed.     Both of them are over 10 years old and it was time for them both to get a fresh new paint job and some minor upgrades.

I just love the new look!

You have seen these pink beds before in the greenhouse/summer cottage.   H moved them to the front of the Garden Shed to give it a little different look than it has had in the past.

Here's how they looked in the greenhouse.    It got a mini makeover as well,   and I can't wait to share it with you later.

Here's a few more pics of the new look......

The fenced area on this side of the Garden Shed will hopefully be planted in a vegetable garden this spring   I'm running out of time,   so I better get it done soon!

Now I want to show you all the work that we did to give the shed's their new look..... 

Next we will put our efforts into the grass and I am going to add some wild flower beds to the area as well.

After the grass and flower beds are all planted we have plans to move to this area of the yard where the rose garden is just beginning to bloom.     This area will get a small makeover that I will be sharing in a few weeks.     We schedule our big projects in the spring while it is still cool,   and then relax and enjoy the yard during the summer and early fall when it's too hot to do hard!

  12. Penny, I love the new color and look of your garden shed!! I'm sorry I didn't get back over last weekend (and now it's this weekend!) to say how much I liked it. I did feature your post at Share Your Style #304, though. :)

    We have a shed coming and it looks much like yours. :) I'll share it later this summer after it gets installed. Lots to do in the backyard before hand!
