I’m trying to get back to reality after my This Old House Magazine cover fun, so I thought I’d show you the “twist” to my garden shed we had built this summer!
Are you ready?
Here’s our garden shed the way it was the last time I showed it to you….
Well, I made a bit of an addition to my shed, and it all started because of these………….
Nope, not the topiaries, but the side light windows on each side of my door. When we had someone come to our door and knock, they could very easily see into our house….I just wasn’t comfortable with that! So we happened to be walking through Lowes one day and saw these…..REPLACEMENT SIDE LIGHTS!
They are the perfect way to add instant charm to your home and also keep people from seeing in. They are glass, but the only part that is completely clear is the little beveled pieces that make up the pretty part of the stained glass. They were really easy to install too…there’s complete instructions inside the box, but honestly, all you do is unscrew the old ones, pop them out, clean up the area a little, and pop these in and screw them back together. It was probably the easiest project we’ve ever done in our house! Now it looks like this….
Cute huh?! I love them, and I really love the fact that people can’t see into our house anymore!
OK…now back to the shed! Ya’ll know how I LOVE to repurpose things right? Well I had these two perfectly adorable clear sidelights that we had removed, so there was no way I was gonna throw them away. You already know what I’m going to say don’t you?! Yep, I installed them in the shed! (a friend of mine came over to help me…it was a two person job for sure)
You wanna see?! Ok, here she is all painted with a pretty color called Cappacino, with her new sidelight windows!….
Don’t those little side windows just make it the most charming little garden shed ever?! I thought I loved my little shed before, but I LOVE it even more since we installed the sidelights! OH…and check out the adorable handles I put on! I found them at Tuesday Morning for $2.99 each! I have some more plans for my cute little shed, like maybe a little porch out front, and some landscaping, but they’ll have to wait a while…lots of other projects I’m working on for now.
What do you think? :0)
