Glamorous before and after pictures of my shed. Try to contain yourself.
This eyesore is just to the right of our garage. When you drive up to the house it is pretty well hidden by large azaleas and a mimosa tree but our neighbors get the full glory of the mismatched, hodge-podgy mess.
On Friday afternoon I got a notion to finally paint the thing. I had some left over paint from when we had our house painted a few years ago. The before pictures show the paint scheme the house had before we painted it.
First a little history of the building. In a previous life it was a kennel. The front and back are actually made from chain-link fence and the two sides are wooden, each with a door. Inside there is a concrete slab that makes up 2/3's of the floor. The rest is dirt.
Ignore the pile of rocks - they are left over from the landscaping we did last year. Same with the brick. We just haven't figured out what to do with them yet.
We covered the chain-link with bamboo fencing material. It was cheap and easy to attach. The camera isn't quite picking up the true color of the after - it is a light taupe color. I still need to paint the underside of the over hang but I ran out of paint and motivation.
Not the prettiest building or my idea of what a garden shed should look like but it is an improvement. It's still held together with termite poop and cobwebs but at least it looks better.
This is what it looks like inside. No way I'm ever painting the inside. I've already had one black widow spider crawling on my arm in here. I try to get in and out as quickly as possible.
Sheesh - I rarely blog and this is what you get? Prettier pictures later on this week - I promise.
