Isn’t it great finding new uses for old items we take out of our homes? Old windows and doors can be use to make so many new and useful things.
A great example is this is making a 4 door garden shed. The makes a really nice looking and useful shed that save time and money on sheathing and siding.
Sharon from Liberty Rose shares with us her story of building her wonderful garden shed.
My most recent “conquest” was a garden shed that was made out of old doors. I have been wanting a shed for just garden tools and pots. They seem to end up all over the place and I can never find them when I need them. Some nice person shared a tool shed they had made on Pinterest and I asked my husband if we could do the same thing since I knew we had taken several doors down in the house over the years.
My husband started drawing his plans for building the shed since there was only a photograph on Pinterest and after a $250 trip to Lowe’s for wood and supplies, he started the shed.
I thought we would just hinge the doors together, slap on a roof and be done with it!!! Well, he said if we did that it would blow over in one of our thunderstorms. I decided the best course of action to take was to just let him do it his way since he was the one building the shed and I really wanted it done.
We used three of our old doors and Pam from the Rusty Bucket gifted us with the “front door” which has panes of glass to let in a little light. Also helps it not to look like an outhouse!
After getting all the parts together, her husband went to work on her shed. He got it done and then she added the finishing touches.
I have had the two children’s shovels for years and found them in my husband’s big shed and decided to hang them on my little shed.
