The character building is finally done!
The building has become one of my favourite focal points in the yard.
Here are a few older shots when I first prettied things up.
I scavenged old and rusted tools from my garden shed to add interest, with little/no colour. I wanted the coke sign and flowers to do all the talking and the rest, to simply be their background.
This funky round thing in the soil is a broken wheel base off a wheelbarrow you’ll see down below. It adorns just the right amount of rust to make it a little interesting.
The license plate is off my previous truck. An antique one would be cool, however this one has meaning to me. That little license plate holds ALOT of memories.
The rusty patina on this old shovel is really exquisite in real life!
These rusty tools are too old to be put to work, however are the perfect age to retire against the side of the building as decoration.
The chain on the ladder acts as a trellis, allowing the ivy to twist it’s way up.
The tools along the side help stake up the flowers for support and just look cool.

The outbuilding resembles all the things I adore. Weathered elements, rustic appeal, my love of antique signs, with just a touch of pretty without it being over the top.
