Hop onto the Way Back Machine with me, folks, and let’s take a little spin. Allow me to remind you how this backyard shed supreme looked 18 months ago when we moved into this house. In a word, dreary. I am SO excited that I am now staring at a bright and colorful and USEFUL space for me to use for so many things!
I’m actively trying not to show you too much of this shed, but I may or may not be dreaming of a sleepover there one night soon. When I left you last week, I was singing the praises of my newly painted floor. Rainbows and magic beans, folks. This week I’ve been getting to the business of art on the walls, decorating and organizing. Both sizeable tasks, but both super fun!
It’s 9:30 p.m. and I kind of want to go sit in my shed. In fact… I want to invite everyone over to come and SIT IN MY SHED! I’m kindasorta obsessed. And it’s not even finished!!! I left you last week and the walls were painted. The amazing lights were installed. But aside from a few projects completed, the shed was very much in disarray. But not this week, folks! This week, it’s taking shape!
So…. a real 7-day week just went by, huh? Like a legit 7 days? Craaaaaaap. I’ll tell you this much. It gets worse before it gets better and I have a plan in my head. That will be my mantra… and fingers crossed I can pull this shed makeover off! This week was the paddling under the surface phase of the makeover. Which is a metaphor for I have nothing pretty to show you. Although I’m lying a little bit… the centerpiece of this makeover DID happen last week: PAINT! My painters came… they applied 3 coats of primer and they conquered. I am SO glad I decided to hire this one out. Time is money and I would have had to pay myself a jillion dollars to pull this one off.
