Making Progress on the Not Shed

It's been pretty dreadful weather today, not sure whether it wants to rain or not.  Combined with the Daily Savings Time confusion that always seems to happen with my inner clock, this was not a day to get QUANTITY of work done.  Josh and I did make some progress in painting the facade of the not shed, though, and I think it looks pretty awesome! 

The door color (Martha's "Hummingbird Blue") is definitely bright (and definitely not to Chuck and Cricket's liking), but I think it's going to be perfect for the look I want.  After all, subtle has never been my strong suit.  There's still lots of accessorizing to do, switching out the chairs for the permanent pair, and some planting, so I'm expecting the blue will be less jarring.  For the time being on this gloomy day, it's definitely the happiest thing in the garden!

  1. Tim, You can go ahead and have the "Not Shed" shipped on up here to Virginia. I would enjoy it just as it is. Great job. - G

  2. That is going to make a great garden shed. I like your porch as it makes it much more than just a shed. I need to clean my shed out so I can walk in there again. I am going to get some vines going on mine this year. Hyacinth Bean is one of my favorite vines, but I have to get it planted early or it doesn't make it.

  3. Don't forget, though, guys, that it's just a facade....hence the name "not shed".....there's nothing behind that wall except a tree!

  4. Just a facade. It's still perfect. I love the blue. I have a swing that needs some color soon.

  5. Robin's egg blue seems quite fitting in a garden.

  10. I think it is brilliant to paint the shed's door Tiffany's Blue... the juxtaposition of Manhattan elegance & Southern Rural says so much! I love this structure!
