So here goes… After cluttering the house my husband decided enough was enough and built me my own shed! The project before the projects..
They de-cluttered and measured area, then levelled off the ground area.
They then made a sub frame for the floor. Photobombed by Bobby (father-in-law’s dog)
They fixed the sub frame to block pad to create the floor area
I then helped out and painted the floor area with weatherproof paint.
They then measured, cut out and built up all four sides using stud work frames and clad that with plywood
They then fitted the shed with double glazed pvc windows to keep me nice and warm in cold winter months.
Then it was time to put the roof on the shed, using the same materials as for the walls. The roof was then waterproofed with bitumen and felt
The walls were painted with fence and shed treatment in beautiful cream colour
The top was also painted and treated with the same paint as the walls in blue shade
My father-in-law then made and fitted the door
They then cut out a window in the door and fitted some perspex
The door frame was then painted to match the shed
My husband making sure there are no leaks on the roof and water tightening the roof
Then it was time to get inside and decorate!! I used a beautiful wallpaper with birds and vines and walls were painted in white emulsion
I decided to make one wall as chalk board, so painted the walls using chalkboard paint and voila!!
Cleaning and adding finishing touches
Click here to see how I transformed an old bookcase into this gorgeous piece.
This beautiful sign was a present from my mother-in law
Some personal finishing touches.. made my own triangle bunting using Clarke and Clarke fabric
The the electricity was fitted and the the switches and plugs needed for my tools .. And then there was light!!!
when the hard work was done… could not find any champagne so had to crack open a beer can!
and this is how my shed was made!
