The Cottage Shed
Have you seen this shed before? It may have peeked through in a winter wonderland picture I showed you here. When we first moved in to our house, back in November, I hated it. I thought for sure it would be one of the first things to go once the weather warmed up.However, It’s starting to grow on me. And the more I think about converting it to a potting shed the more I like it! It obviously needs some work and I have WAY too many projects on the go right now to really get in to this one, so I decided to just add a pop of colour for the time being. In hopes that it would distract you, and the people driving by my house from how ugly the shed really is. I figured a few bright accessories would do the trick. I thought the mailbox on the front was charming. However, our last name isn’t O’Reilly so that mailbox just wouldn’t do. Not like that anyway. Of course I just spray painted the ugly away! Well, almost. That flower isn’t ready to die yet and the mailbox itself has seen better days. Oh well, it’s a temporary fix. And this picture is really close. Step back and squint your eyes a bit and it looks FANTASTIC! Ha. Ha.I also decided to spray paint a pot I picked up at Value Village for $3.99 to match. Here it is before.And after a few quick coats of Key Lime – my new favourite colour!Not bad for $3.99 right? Here is the shed after. Not exactly a major transformation but cuter than it was, no? My grand plan for the shed is to paint everything white. The railing, the siding, the trim – everything. I figure white looks great in the summer and the winter – with a few colourful accessories in the summer and a beautiful berry wreath in the winter. Maybe painting the shed will be added to my fall to do list. It’s definitely not happening during the heat wave we’ve been experiencing lately! What do you think? Does this shed have the potential to be pretty or am I seeing it through key lime coloured glasses?
