My Shabby Shed

               First thing first, I'm so sorry for being MIA but I've been filling apron orders and making more to fill my shop, I've gotten 6 orders in the last 2 weeks! My sewing machine has gotten a happy workout, I'm very grateful and happy to see aprons so popular! One order was for Thanksgiving aprons for her Mom and sisters, she wanted to surprise them this year plus start a tradition. I thought that was so neat! Ok, back to the giveaway! picked...........Donna from Donna's Lavender Nest Blog! Congrats to Donna!! She wants a purple apron so this will be fun! Speaking of fun, check out Donna's blog, it's cute and full crafty fun!

           Well, it took us all summer but my potters shed is finally done! Well almost, my hubby has to make the trim for the sides to seal it better but I've moved in! I'm so happy with it, and I'm so proud of my husbands work! I can tell him what I want, show him some ideas from magazines or books and he makes it all happen! I told him I wanted a shabby shed made out of recycled materials, so we got busy hitting yard sales, flea markets and the restore. Even found the rough cut lumber on Craig's list for $1 a board, saving us tons!! The windows were free, the door is a old screen door that was wide open in the middle. I had bought 2 old shutters at the Restore for $8 each that I had hoped to put on the door like a hurricane door but there wasn't room so we cut them down to fill in the middle of the door and it came out perfect! The shed measures 10x10 with the porch, I had to have a porch! But there is plenty of room inside for potting, planting and storage! Oh, the fun I'll have decorating this each season! Best part is, after it's all said and done, the grand total is less than $1000. We saved $2300 from the prefab ones we looked at in the beginning! I love my shabby shed and hubby who still amazes me!
