Shed Makeovers

Discover different uses for purchased stock sheds. Whether it's a cozy cabin or a poolside hangout, a shed can suit almost any backyard need.
  • Cozy Cabin

    This simple wooden shed is now a rustic retreat. A cross-gable roof with an entry archway shows off the salvaged entry door. Intact wood creates curving porch columns, and large salvaged windows are divided with muntins. Small touches like an entry lamp, porch bench, and front garden make this space feel like home.

  • Garden Hobby Shed

    This black and white shed was inspired by traditional New England barns. It's dressed for the garden with trellises flanking the entry door and a window box beneath each of four symmetrically placed windows. It's beautiful exterior makes time in the garden even more enjoyable!

  • Backyard Retreat

    This homey potting shed has a faux-slate roof, in the steep shape of Tudor tradition. A wrought-iron flowerpot holder beneath the window holds geraniums for some extra color while offering an alternative to flower boxes. While the inside is a practical space for potting, the small front porch is the perfect spot to soak up some sunlight.

    An old wooden shed serves as funcitonal path decoration. It spans a stone pathway, and tools line up along one side while a small potting bench fills the opposite wall.
