Potting Shed shutters and new flowers for the shed

read

Well, as you already know from the greenhouse touring post, I buckled down and bought some new flowers for summer. With a freshly pressure washed shed, this thing was ready for blooms! I really did love last summer’s Potting Shed rake sign with the potted flowers, however I wanted to do something slightly different this […]

A surprise rustic shed snow day

read

I’ve mentioned no less than a bazillion times how much I love snow. It’s very seldom we have a white Christmas on Canada’s west coast. And I’m not entirely sure we will this year. But, what are the chances of right before leaving on a tropical getaway, we are BLASTED with a blizzard? Low! It’s […]

Rustic shed update 1 – removing the damaged

read

I often get asked how to protect reclaimed wood. I have protected or refinished it, which you can read in THIS post. And here is how I clean reclaimed wood prior to protecting. Which I still do with every strip I find! But truth be told, I generally don’t protect it at all on most of […]

The shed encased with its fall shawl

read

Yawing to the beginning of a new day, I always like to glance outside before stumbling down the hallway towards the caffeine machine. The two cats are generally snoozing along side me somewhere, so after I scratched behind their ears, I stood up to take in the view. Overcast… normal. Wet… very normal. Green… oh yes. Quite […]

A new pallet gate and boardwalk for the shed

read

Lest you think I’ll never stop playing with pallets, you are probably right. Thing is, I was creating with pallets before they became ‘a thing.’ And since I had 2 on hand and the garden shed needed work pronto, this happened in a matter of about an hour. It’s a new pallet gate and boardwalk for the shed! […]

This project may be too simple to even blog about, but… what can I say here… You can make an old ladder garden arbour… in minutes! Yesterday I was continuing my big weed fest in the backyard and had all this apparatus (the usual… sawhorses, pallets.. doesn’t everyone?!) lying all over the place. Including a couple […]

If rustic garden sheds could tell stories

read

You guys are so sweet! After my Less Than Pinterest Worthy post yesterday, some of you were consoling me over my poor, barren yard. Thank-for being so thoughtful! But I did a little something about it today. The rustic garden shed got some new accessories AND flowers. It’s still early in the year, but things are looking up! At least […]

A Merry Christmas winter wonderland shed

read

 It couldn’t have happened on a more perfect day. I heard a “Moooom…. it’s 7:40!”  As I reached for the iPhone, I realized not only did the alarm not go off as planned, my son would be very late for school. Groaning while I threw off the covers, a quick glance outside stopped me in […]

Way to prune those trees, yard messin’ Walter!

read

Someone’s been messin’ with my yard again. And that would be Walter. Every late fall, Walter pays a visit with his hedge trimmer and clippers and such and prunes my trees into new hairdos. Did you just gasp? Good call! This man does the most gorgeous shrub trimming I’ve ever laid eyes on. I love […]
