Back in August, my hubby started a little project we call the “garden shed.” We had wanted one for years. Ever since we sold the gigantic play structure that came with the house, we wanted to build a shed in it’s place. We had the plans, which were approved by both the HOA and the city years ago, but life got in the way and we did nothing. Here is what the spot looked like for a long time.
Actually, that is a very cleaned up version. For a long time, we had a huge pile of yard debris there. We are really lucky that even though we live in a somewhat newer neighborhood, we have lots of nice big trees for privacy. Unfortunately, we could still see the neighbor’s trampoline.
Here’s my cute honey, still smiling. Can you see how our grape vines have grown over the neighbor’s trampoline?
My number #1 boy helped out a lot in the early stages.
And voila, only three months later we have the completed garden shed. I am so happy it’s finished. Of course, I need to do a little planting, put up a window box, and jazz up the outside a bit. We painted it to match the house and it really blends in nicely in the backyard, I think. Lest you think I am going to decorate the inside, I need to let you know that this is strictly a garden shed. No cute antique bed or anything fun is going inside. The good news is that having this shed will free up a lot of space in the garage for more of my junk that is currently residing in the house.
Okay, not the most thrilling post, but I’m pretty excited that this is one project that is finally finished. Somewhat. We are having beautiful weather up here in the PNW! I think I’ll go outside and do a little painting. Hope you’re having a fabulous day where ever you are.
