Say hello to my new and improved
garden shed.

Last time I told you I was always looking for ways
to camouflage my
old, ugly, beige

Well this week I
went to town on it...
...and I'm liking the results.

Now I didn't do the whole thing, just the front.
The rest is another project,
maybe in the Fall.
First thing I did was
prime and paint it
sunny yellow,
the doors I painted cream.

What got me going was finding this
louver door panel for 12.99.
Painted that bad boy bright blue.

Decided to spray paint
my baby bed springs black
so it would pop a bit more on the cream doors.

Attached the shutters with a little eye screw
and some clear fishing line.

Can you see the little birds on top?

I found these on my latest outing to the
antique/junk shop.
Fifteen dollars.

Just drilled a little whole and slid them in.
Love it!

So there it is...what do you think?
