One of my favorite blogs definingyourhome hosted by my blogging buddy Cameron had a guest post about Stylish Sheds. I would love to have a destination like that to enjoy in my own garden. My single garage has multiple purposes such as housing the washer/dryer, freezer and overflow for non-perisables. Then the other half is storage for mopeds belonging to my teenaged sons. That leaves only the shed for storing the lawnmower and other homeless equipment. Someday in the future I may be able to turn my garden shed into a place to pot up plants, but until then it serves a practical function of storage. Nevertheless until then I can still make it blend in with the garden with paint and decorative items. My goal was to paint it this year a creamy tan color with green accents to match the house. Unfortunately I never quite got to that task. Next year this will have to be near the top of the honey do list. 🙂
My neighbor’s added a very attractive shed to their backyard this year. My favorite features are the window boxes and cupola. Can’t you picture a nice little garden surrounding the perimeter of this building? I wish this model had been available when I purchased mine several years ago. It is quite charming.
Another neighbor of mine utilized this shed as a art studio for their son. He is disabled hence the added ramp and deck features. The house has since been sold to a new family and I’m not sure what it is used for now. I like the front facing windows with shutters and the shape of the roof on this building.
