What a Transformation

Postby CdnChelsea » Jul 19, 2011 8:45 am


We have an old storage shed at the back of our property that really needed a make-over. I know it is just a shed but the window and door were really ugly looking and you can see the shed from all parts of the yard. I never liked looking at it.

In an earlier post, I showed a window my neighbour gave us. Since the seal was broken, we thought we would replace the old window on the shed with the new one.

Old window:

New window:

Then my husband found a solid wood door the owners were throwing out. So my wonderful husband installed both the window and door on the old shed, painted the trim and now the old shed has been transformed:

I love the new look :)

My husband thanks you all for the compliments :) I'm so glad you like the look of the shed too.

Kelly and her children actually got to see the shed last week when she was starting her holiday. Kelly, I wish we had more time to visit. I really enjoyed talking with you. :)

Yeh, my dh is one very special guy. So much so, all my girlfriends love him. They even say he gives great hugs. Well....I already know that! :lol:

Just remember, he is mine, all mine but I will share him a little....just a little... and then I want him right back. There are still lots of projects for him to do around here.
:wink:
