This fun shed caught my attention the minute we arrived at Box Ranch RV Park about 2 weeks ago. We’re currently staying here while we get our space ready at Quail Grove. It’s been a nice change of pace and the lake is just down the road.
Across the street you’ll find John’s Creek Lodge; that place is full of charm and where I’ve been admiring this reclaimed she shed. After about the second week I decided to sneak over take a few pictures so I could share this building with y’all because it’s adorable, full of character and I thought it may inspire some of you gardeners.
Every detail surrounding the shed tells a story of its own and the atmosphere is perfect for puttering away an afternoon potting plants.
I made sure Robert was with me because later when life slows down I’d love for him to build something similar for me.
During my picture taking I met the owner, a wonderful lady who seemed taken that I was interested in her shed. We had a nice visit and appeared delighted I’d be sharing her treasure on the blog.
What’s really neat is she also shared some details that I’ll unfold about this custom build made by her husband, Bobbie. He used wooden reclaimed windows for the walls and added a tin roof so this shed can also work as a greenhouse. Simply brilliant!
Reclaimed cedar fence boards were used on the back wall and check out the window up top, it’s perfect for ventilation during the summer months when temperatures are out of control.
Inside is where she has friendly cats that come and go between meal time and add a special character appeal. It just happened to be feeding time when I arrived and they weren’t too sure about me taking pictures.
I love this counter top and the “Welcome to the Garden” sign is perfection. Check out the drawer knobs each one is unique and I love those colored bottles.
On the opposite wall, there is another potting table, an area that’s perfect for starting plants by seed. Oh, and look at the watering can, don’t you love the green stencil? It’s simple, pretty and every garden shed needs a watering can.
My favorite detail is the rod iron transom window. The twist and turn details add a level of character that pulls everything together. They leave it open during the Spring – Fall and in the winter, they cover the back with plexiglass to help keep the space warm.
She also mentioned at times heat lamps are added to keep things warm if it gets below freezing. Everything about this reclaimed shed is perfection and the best part is it can also be used as a greenhouse.
If you’ve been dreaming of a fun shed with character this piece is here to inspire your effort because I have to say it caught my attention and now I’m on the hunt for some old windows.
