Fake Garden Shed Makeover



                                                                                  Hello everyone,

                                                                 I have a makeover project to share
                                                                with you today.
                                                                 
                                                                              This old door has a mirror behind
                                                                              the glass with chickenwire over it/
                                                                           I moved a few things around from the garden
                                                                           to create this look.
                                                                       The door and shutters are painted
                                                                       Marina Blue from Behr and then
                                                                      I gave it a good coat of Annie Sloan
                                                                      dark wax to age it.



                                                                               This is what it looked like before. The door was inside
                                                                               at the back as well as the shutters ~ so by bringing it
                                                                               forward it made it look more like an old shed.
                                                                                 There are a couple of clematis and a climbing
                                                                              hydrangea planted on either side so I am hoping
                                                                             they climb up over the slates of the roof in a year or
                                                                             two.
                                                      I think it is more of a feature in the garden now~
                                                                don't you?

                                                                 I am joining Between Naps on the Porch for
                                                                Metamorphosis Monday.

                                                                            Thank you for visiting,
                                                                                              Carolyn

It´s a vey good idea to put a ordinary pergola to a garden shed like this.
And I like all your thing in your garden.
Especially your little garden cottage
I have a garden house too, which i have designed and me and my hubbie has build it from scratch last summer.
You can see it here if you like and scroll a little bit and you can also follow it how we built it if you go back in old posts.

Carolyn,
I love the look and the color along with the creative idea on the window, chicken wire and a mirror. I would have never thought of that!!!
I always enjoy your garden.
