The Garden Shed

When we moved to the Back Forty, we most certainly needed a shed for the tractor, the lawn mower, tools, and fertilizers for the garden, trees, grass, and bushes.  The shed filled up pretty quickly.

The shed had windows with flower boxes and shutters.   I made curtains with John Deere tractor motifs.

The flower boxes are covered with dollar weeds as they lay scattered on the ground in wait of a wash and a paint job.

Now, I want my own garden shed, a small bungalow, a retreat where I can go and enjoy afternoon teas or a glass of wine while listening to my music or hear the birds twittering.

Some call this kind of a shed a "she shed" and they are trendy and seem to be here to stay.  Of course, men may also have their own sheds and fix it up the way they like to have it.

I would like to put up lacy curtains in the windows, hang a small but fancy chandelier from the ceiling, and show off my jams and relishes on a shelf.

At some home improvement centers, a basic shell of a shed may be purchased and be delivered and installed to your garden area.  You may also be able to select windows and doors.  Then it is up to you how you want to decorate it.  A day bed may be desirable as well as a small table and a comfortable chair. Who knows what you may come up with.
