Before & After: Diane’s Gorgeous Shed

shed, rustic, before and after, transformation

When I found this awesome shed makeover last week I knew you guys were going to love it. I’ve always held a special place in my heart for sheds…I think it’s because they’re pretty much like forts for adults. And really, who doesn’t want their own fort to escape to on hot summer days? And since I don’t have a shed [fort?] of my own yet, I like to live vicariously through those who do. The before photo features the original shed which definitely held it’s own in the department of rustic charm. But Diane’s beautifully remodeled shed is a real showstopper.

I told you it was good. I love the rich golden tone of the new siding and the mature plants that hug the edges. Oh, and the coolest part? Their siding came from 5 spruce trees in their yard that had to be cut down. The trees were made into planks that were then stacked flat to dry out in their old shed for an entire year! That’s some serious dedication. I’m sure I don’t have to mention that a ton of work has gone into this project since the beginning. If you want to check out the entire process or see what it looks like inside, you should head over to her blog. It’s well worth a visit. Awesome job, Diane! I love it. -erin

The Rose Parade: A Look Back to One Year Ago Today

The Rose Parade: A Look Back to One Year Ago Today

I can hardly believe that one year ago today, I (with my family) sat on the streets of Colorado Blvd. in Pasadena, CA and took in the spectacle that is the Rose Bowl Parade.   As the guest of the California Cut Flower Commission I had spent the previous two days meeting cut flower growers…

The Nearly Done Office (with the help of a Modernica planter)

The Nearly Done Office (with the help of a Modernica planter)

Slowly but surely my new office is taking shape. The hardest part for me is always the finishing touches. I still need to find, load-up and style the bookshelves, sort through a pile of paper that needs to be filed in my less than adequate system (dread!!), recover the sofa, and hang some more pictures. I…

Getting an Early Start – Growing Turmeric, Ginger, Rosemary & Sage

Are you an early spring indoor seed starter? I am not. Not that I wouldn’t like to be, but frankly I just don’t have the patience for the shenanigans I have to go through to do it successfully. I always get leggy, cat chewed, weaklings that seem highly un-worth the fact that I literally have…
