RenovationsOur Old Backyard Shed June 1, 2016The project I’m sharing today is the one we’ve been most excited about since we started planning this renovation. When we moved into this house, there was this old, weathered shed in the backyard. Our initial plan was to tear it down. Once we added the back addition, it was only a few short steps from the new back door. I mean, what could we do with it anyway? And then inspiration struck. We’re partnering with Lowe’s Home Improvement on this shed transformation and I couldn’t be more excited. We’ve always dreamed of having a screened porch, but building one from the ground up is a big investment. Using this existing structure to create one is saving us major money and time. Here’s how we’re tackling it: We’ll be cutting out large “windows” in each side to make it feel like the walls are totally screened. We’ll do windows instead of totally removing the walls to maintain enough of the existing structure to keep it supported and sound. Each long side will have two 6ft. wide by 7 ft. tall windows, so it will feel really open. The back will have a long transom to let in light. The entrance will be re-done with a barn light and new doors. The interior is my favorite part. The inside already had planks on the walls and ceiling, making it really easy for us to get an awesome finish with just cheap white paint. The planks and vaulted ceiling are my favorite part. As with most of my projects, the inside will get a fun, layered finish with some definite boho inspiration. This will be a big transformation and I can’t wait to finish it up and reveal it to you guys! We’re working fast on this one to get it done in time for summer and I’ll be sharing progress on Friday! Stay tuned, friends.
