haven't already, you MUST visit this blog...My Shabby Streamside Studio.
This little building has been featured on many blogs...but I can't get enough of it. I want one! The next best thing though, is for one of my friends to have a similar one. Michelle (Mad Red Hare) has a shed with a loft (sleeping loft), and has been asking her husband to move it closer to their log cabin home, and close to the outdoor pond. You know how it is with husbands...you ask and ask, and soon nag and nag...and it goes undone...either because they didn't think of it or they just consider it to be too much trouble. Michelle and I talked about it yesterday...and I'm in...I'll help her move the shed. I'm sure we can gather together a few strong guys and get it done. I can't wait to help!
I think it would be great fun to paint and decorate a shed/garden house...lots of gauzy whites and lace...way too frilly for me 95% of the time, but it would be a great escape.
We all deserve a little place to escape, don't we?
