A few years ago our drab and tired shed received a new coat of white paint. It made such a big difference in her cuteness, don’t you think? See the front photo below :). Although the paint definitely gave it new life, I wanted to do a bit more of it this summer. There are so many ways to make it even more charming!
I’d love to offer a long-term view and then settle in on a few quick and affordable updates that we can get into right away.
If you are on Instagram, I have shared a few ideas in my stories. You can still see the stories if you missed them, I recorded all the details and a little inspiration in this highlight of the delivery.
Here’s what it looked like when we moved in …
And here it is now….
Much better! But still far from its full potential! We have already started to dig the grass around it to give it a more welcoming entrance (after taking this photo). What would you do? Plants? Stepping stones? Gravel? Potted plants? So many options!
There are so many creative ways to give the shed itself more character on a budget. Lanterns? Paint the doors? Hanging plants? Climb vines or roses? Architectural embellishments?
My head is spinning with all the possibilities. What ideas would give us the most bang for our buck? Which would we like the most? Which are the most affordable? What ideas would get us started in the right direction for the future?
Sometimes, to help clarify our path forward or to visualize what our ideas, colors, or props would look like, we’re going to redesign a space with Photoshop!
Below is an example of what our shed could look like with a few simple changes like lanterns, a few different paint color options, and a simple stepping stone to a fun destination nearby. These types of updates would be pretty easy to implement, but would definitely have an impact!
Fun to see different options, right? Of course, the options are endless, so I’d love to hear YOUR creative ideas on what we should be doing for this hangar and the area around it. Share your dream ideas or just a few simple changes that you think are worth considering.
Tell me what you think about it HERE on this post in my Instagram! I read every idea and given all the options I can even do a few more photoshop mockups so thanks in advance!
Dreaming about ideas makes me wish I had more than one hangar! If you’re “shopping” this spring and summer, here are a few you can get online (scroll down and click for details)
Would really love to have another shed in our back yard, especially one large enough to be a studio or garden house or maybe even a greenhouse! But even small sheds can be so useful, we have that extra little shed that we keep our outdoor cushions in during the winter!
