Garden shed

Renovated garden shed (before)
When we moved in the garden shed looked worse for wear, as you can see above. I cleaned it up and painted it with Cuprinol Garden Shades Silver Birch paint.

We replaced the broken window with some new sheets of perspex. Then, using some old net curtain wires I hung some curtains in the windows made from stone spot cotton duck fabric from Cath Kidston.

For a touch of humour I hung a Honest Otto's metal sign on the door.

Being the colour coordination obsessive I am I found garden accessories to match. The garden kneeler and gloves are from Cath Kidston. The sky blue hand trowel and fork are from Burgon and Ball, the powder blue wellington boots from Hunter, and the cream enamel garden trug from Franksy Kitchenware.


  1. Looks lovely, that cuprinol paint is a joy. I'm amazed they didn't come up with it earlier - you used to only be able to paint in 2 colours before - turd brown or dark green.

  2. You've certainly got a keen eye for aesthetics. It's amazing the difference a coat of paint and a few subtle changes can make.

  3. Lucky you!!! I would love to have this...

  4. I can't believe I previously missed this post, way back when. Love the pretty pink polka dotted curtain, and well, those die for!

  5. What a lovely garden you have. One of my favorite is your garden shed. I like the design. Thanks for the ideas.


Thank you for your sweet comments. I love reading them all.
