    Shed Features

    I bought a property last year and started a private camping area on it. I replaced an aging crummy spa near the pool with a Mr. Shed shed, then I turned it into a gathering place for my campers to use for poolside dining, playing games, painting. It has turned into a resort style tiki room that is romantically lit at night with flickering solar lanterns and string lights.

    The curtains are hula skirts. Flowers came from hobby stores. I used peel-and-stick bamboo wallpaper and painted a mural. Bamboo chairs were given to me because they were trashed. I re-did the seats myself. The table was from a yard sale, 20.00.

    The step also from a barn sale, $10.00 bench I turned into a step. Shutters and glass block window came from a huge estate barn sale, they were buried under old wood, doors and other stuff.

    I dug down to find them, then had to dig them out. The French doors were $1800 marked down to $280 because they had a cracked molding.

    The shed place added my window and doors when they built the shed, for no extra charge. I stenciled the floor with homemade stencils. It was a budget project.

    Other Shed info

    I did the whole shed myself. I used reed fencing on the ceiling. I found a damaged set of French doors discounted at a big box home store and a large glass block window at a barn sale. The shed place installed them for me when they built it. The bamboo table and chairs were also at a barn sale. The shutters on the outside were at the same barn sale as the glass block window, they were all buried under a pile of old doors and windows and wood. I crawled in and dug down to pull them out. I painted the shutters. At night it's lit up with solar lanterns. Everyone loves it!
