I can see clearly now

Oh, these windows and french doors are soooo dirty! They have been waiting for their new home for quite a few years.

I can see clearly now

The insulation waiting when I took this photo. Now it is up on the walls.

A rear view of the place. We have the vent holes cut in too. The trim still needs to go around the windows and the French doors so either my step son or son-in-law will do that. My step son was the one who installed the windows and doors. We only had 4 windows so we spread them around with the main two over looking the bee hives and what will be a new flower bed.

Here are my French doors! Arent' they pretty?!!!! I'll be heading out to the store to purchase paint as I need to get started on the paint job. I have been so undecided about the color. I really don't want white, nor brown although I have seen some pretty garden houses those colors. I am leaning towards the same color as our house which is sort of a soft pale yellow. The trim is what is throwing me off. Our trim has this deep mustard gold which I love, but I was thinking of something different. I had thought of a French lavender blue, but that may be too much. It might be better used as an accent.

This little one is real excited for his new home! I purchased it at a consignment shop a few months back.

Of course, hubby thought it would look better this way next to a tree!! Men!!

Hopefully by next week I'll be able to show you the paint job although we are suppose to get rain which I won't complain as we do need it. So as the saying goes...better get my rear in gear, and get out there looking at paint!

Too Funny! Your husband sounds just like mine. All men must think alike. I love the building. I am just imagining all of the wonderful things you can do with it. I can't wait to see the final results! Carla

Love your garden shed!!! All the magazines I read about gardening feature little sheds like yours. I have a barn, good for storage but certainly not cute. It's more a hulking presence behind the gardens.

MEN! You have to keep your eye on them ALL the time!
It is so much fun seeing the progress of your little house...and go for the outrageous trim!
It will be beautiful, like a flower set into the woods! :)

What a stunning little houyse! Love the statue too although like you I prefer him facing out!! Can't wait to see how you decorate the interior when ir's done. We have a shed but it is only 6 x 4 feet and full of garden implements - I always fancied a garden room sized one!!

Thanks for your comments on my blog - good to have you visit.

Ha ha Ulrike! Love the cherub! And have fun with the painting!
Oh, I have you added to my links, so I can visit more often:) Hope it is OK.
Thanks for your always nice and kind words to me!

Ulrike, it's looking awesome already with the windows and great French doors - what fun!

Anxious to see the color you choose. Our house is pale yellow with white trim however when I painted my potting shed years back, I chose a med. sage green with lighter trim and painted the shutters purple!! It's always looked cute and blends in with the surrounding trees and shrubs just enough, but you can still see it as a garden feature.
Whatever you choose will look great I know!
