The Shed

I saw Martha Stewart years ago in her garden shed (on TV).
She was patiently cleaning and repairing her garden tools.
Since then I've decided to enjoy the process of restoring and repairing the tools that served us well throughout the summer and early autumn.
We're going to refurbish our Sweetwater Carriage House into a viable garden shed. It was built about 100 years ago for the Model T Ford (made by Henry Ford 1908-1927). It's sweet, but in dire need of repair.
I'll take before and after photos and post them.
In the meantime, here are a couple of sweet sheds from BH & G.
Do you own a garden shed or have wanted to?

I would love to have a cute garden shed someday. the best ones are the ones made from old buildings that are already on the property. Like you are doing:) since I live in town - no cute out building. Sigh. Maybe someday!

We do not have an old garden shed to remodel but we are going to build a new one next summer. If you look at my old post, check out my blog on my dream garden shed. I can't wait to have a garden shed that I can decorate and play in!!!!!!!!!!!!!
