We are making some slow and steady progress though. Decided to start on seeing a smaller project through to the end...small goal and seeing it completed helps you keep on with the bigger jobs!
This little garden shed was in need of some new hinges, some planters, some garden accessories and a few days later,,,,I think it looks great!!
Here is the before picture:
Add some red paint, charcoal trim, new handle and lock, pain the hinges and add some faux brick to the bottom and one mini facelift complete!!
These planters came with the property, I decided to move them beside the shed and hopefully the morning glories that I planted will make their way up the trellis. I hauled sooo many rocks into our previous yard to make tree bed borders and flower beds. This yard will only require 1 tree bed and this rock bed by the shed. One problem is we don't have any rock piles on this quarter of land!! Thankfully when we asked the neighbors, they said to help ourselves to some rock piles on their land. I wanted a river rock size. Called the landscape place in the city and they wanted $120/yard !! YIKES! Then called a gravel place and they wanted $31/yard...that was a little bit better but was thankful that in the neighbors rock pile there were lots of the size that I wanted! In fact, I have never seen a rock pile with small rocks like this in it! Someone sure went to alot of work gather rocks!
Any suggestions on an annual plant that will be a good, fast growing climber on the trellis? I am hoping that the morning glories will fill it in pretty good...but this year may be a trial and error year for plants and knowing what will work.
This shows the shed almost complete, just had to add the faux brick on the bottom and I think it looks much better. It took us a few loads to move everything from our Hanna farm to this one. At times I think we looked the Beverly Hillbillies! Darrell hangs onto a lot of things and had to bring most of it! Thankful that he did though...we have used scraps of this and that, fence posts were hauled down, and lumber,,,,farmers never want to part with anything! Some of which you will see in future posts! Thanks, Darrell, for being the pack rat you are at times!!
Our friend, Rob, made this cute little wind chime out of old cutlery. I think the perfect place to hang it is by this little garden shed that is thankful for its mini makeover!
Hoping you all have a great week end and thanks for stopping by to see what we have been up to in the country!!
