Shed extreme makeover
This is what the potting area looked like for the last couple of years. It started out as a nice area but the wheather really took it's toll on everything sitting outside. Plus when I tried to start seedlings last spring I had to contend with squirrels digging in the pots, birds dropping unwanted seeds, the rain we did get flooded everything. It really looked bad as you can see.
This is the last of the old fence panels, Randy took them apart. We were going to salvage the pickets but most of them split and fell apart in the process so they will all go to the curb on trash day.
The old metal shed that is so rusted in the first picture has been painted a dark gray color and when I find either a barn red or dark green, the door will be painted too.
The new potting shed is up. It is 7feet x 7 feet x 7feet and is a popup design. It has 8 screened 'windows' that can be opened for ventilation. I need to get some shelves for plants, the red cooler in front of me holds my potting soil so it will go in too, several other things will go in so the furnishing is not complete. But the important items are there, my chair, me and a glass of Chianti.

Cheers Toni! Looks great!
Lang may yer lum reek Toni (old Scottish saying) and it certainly looks like the ideal place to spend some quality time in.
Wooo! That is uber-kewl!
Toni, Love it! I just may have to have one as well. So far I have seen lots of things lately that I must have.
lol, good to see you! After the month you've had, you deserve a good sit, though I prefer a good rum-&-coke myself!
Hello Toni :) Go on pour yourself another, you deserve it after the recent February events. The potting shed is quite futuristic, I like it. Where did you get it from?
Hot dog, looks comfy and cozy!
Very nifty, Toni. You will spend many happy hours in there I can tell. The first year I had my homemade greenhouse I spent every spare minute in it, the next also. Then the hurricane came and we wedged it between two trees and there it still sits, just a frame. Me thinks we need an extreme makeover too.
OOPS!!!!!!! That was Sharon, not Richard.
That looks great toni and you in the chair until March.
Thanks all, I just couldn't sit and wait until next weekend to get the potting shed done, so I took a chance and went into the backyard before March.
That is a perfect spot! I'm sure you're flowers are beautiful.
