If you’ve always desired a rustic garden shed, this is the post for you.
This little garden shed started off as a greenhouse that had seen much better days.
Today, it’s a little rustic gem that takes centre stage in the backyard.
This project is PERFECT for non builders as the entire structure was already intact.
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 old rusty tools leaning along the side of the garden shed help stake up the flowers for support, not to mention adding fabulous junk detail.
This old rusty jack and shovel are the perfect companions to the red geraniums.
Tip: If you’ve planted new flowerbeds, insert ‘junk’ among the flowers to fill in the bed until the plants get going.
The rusty and white patina on this vintage shovel is amazing.
Once these flowers spill over the edges of the crate flowerbox, it’ll look fabulous!
I’m so proud of that barnwood door build!
The crafty vintage door handle truly worked out perfectly.
And every little rustic garden shed can use a canning jar lid wreath, don’t you think?!
The rustic garden shed 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.
