After 3 YEARS of working, building, and basically living in this shed workshop, it was FINALLY time to give it a solid makeover and I am SO EXCITED to be able to share the reveal with you today! These past three years in this 12 x 12 space have been so incredible. I have grown so much in this space (and, let’s be real so has my tool collection), and I have been bursting at the seems. So, naturally it was time to give this space some love and a solid refresh. I gave this shed workshop the makeover I have been wanting to for years… and I am stoked to finally spill the beans on this renovation with all of you! Let’s get started!
Can you believe that it has been 3 years since my dad and I built my shed-shop!? The past 3 years have been so amazing in this little 12 x 12 workshop, but it was finally time to give it the love that it deserves! When we built the shop, it matched the existing siding color on my parents’ home. But, since then, they’ve replaced the siding to add a beautiful grey color… needless to say the shop started to stick out like a sore thumb. So, I decided to paint it! Painting a shed is a super easy process, and it made a huge impact on the entire yard! So, here’s how I painted the shed!
If there is one thing I’m really good at, it’s hoarding lumber. I have had a gorgeous live edge piece of walnut in my shop for months and had no clue what to do with it… until now! In just a few short steps I was recently able to transform a walnut slab into a DIY floating fireplace mantel (and was able to do it one weekend)! Not in the market for a mantle? You can follow these same steps to create a shelf as well! Here’s how!
In case Mother Nature (or, if you’re like me, your allergies) hasn’t told you yet, Spring is in full force! Warmer weather and longer days mean time for outdoor projects, and I couldn’t be more excited! If you’ve been following my journey on Instagram, you’ll know that I am in the middle of a huge shed-shop renovation. Which means it’s time to spice up the exterior of the shop to look as pretty as the rest of my parents’ yard! So, I partnered up with my friends at The Home Depot and Olympic to create a pair of modern slat wood planters and made some magic happen!
