Garden Sheds

This weekend’s house keeping task is to clean out our shed.  It’s not something we’re looking forward to, but these pictures are inspiring me to transform it from a garage-overflow-space to something more useable, enjoyable, and dare I say, charming.

Is that an adorable townhouse or a delightful shop? Oh no, it’s just the ol’ garden shed…. uh-huh…. garden shed of my dreams!

Love the vines growing up onto the shed and the gravel pathway leading to it.

An old caravan turned shed is just too fun!

 

Now… check out this wonderful transformation by designer Michael Devine where he takes an ordinary (but a very cute ordinary) wood shed and transforms it into a gorgeous and sophisticated retreat…

After.  Really, are these the same spaces?!? The open shelving with beautiful accessories, the sophisticated wall to wall curtains, the lush plantings…. gorgeous!

As if it couldn’t get any better than it already was, the floor is painting in this chic pattern, there's a daybed for mid-afternoon lounging , and a fanciful chandelier.  I’m inspired, no doubt about it!

Designer Lauren Liess of Pure Style Home turned her Lowes shed into this adorable playhouse for her little boys.  Inspiration and elbow grease sure can create a magical place….

 

We may never turn our shed into a garden room like some of these gorgeous spaces, but we definitely can incorporate some of BHG’s practical (and cute) gardening ideas into it….

Potting bench where everything is clean, organized, and inviting!

Garden shed is not only a place where you can keep your tools and other gardening materials, it also serves as a decoration for your garden.

You have given great information regarding garden shed. I like all garden sheds images all are very beautiful. In this post very nicely describe how to make and manage garden sheds.

Those garden sheds are certainly more livable than my shabby place. They just look warm and inviting.

The shed actually just gives me an idea for my next week party. Might as well have it as my theme.

The green wooden shed looks like a hobbit house to me. Cute and adorable.

The shed with almost dilapidated look appeals to me most. It looks to me like a vintage.

Those are nice sheds. I would like to build a shed for my garden. I'm looking at http://www.sliptube.com/stshelters.html for advice.

Garden sheds need to be maintained regularly. Whether Storage Sheds or a garden shed, both need be cleaning up at regular intervals. Garden sheds should be made using natural wood. Natural wood is easy in cleaning up, but if exposed to a lot of water the wood can rust.
