If you have been here before, then you know how much time I spend in my garden. You may have also figured out that I really love making something ugly pretty. So of course when I got the opportunity to mix the two together, I jumped on it. This outdoor shed makeover has been my funnest project this summer.
Can you believe that I actually purchased this? Yes I paid for it. Not much though, but I knew that I could bring it back to life. I’m not even sure I actually needed a shed, but I really wanted to see if I could make it pretty. Turns out I really like having the extra storage.
I’d like to sit here and compose a whole list of instuctions on how I transformed it, with all these amazing DIY tips but honestly all I really did was a few simple things.
- Put it back together, it had to be taken apart to fit in my car…. I just lied to you I did not put in back together actually. I paid this sweet little man who sometimes does work for me, to put it back together.
- Spray painted it once it was put together. It took 10 cans of white rustoleom spray paint…..next is the part where I got lucky.
- I found a vintage window on the Facebook marketplace the same exact size of the door. How lucky was that? I should have bought a lottery ticket that day.
- Hung the window in the opening. What I really mean is that it just wedged into place perfectly.
- And voila that’s it.
I just love having extra storage in my garden, and I love really loved the challenge of this outdoor shed makeover.
