Potting Shed Update

Well it looks a little strange right now. Just started the stenciling today. Getting some small window boxes, gotta hang my straw hat and finish the stenciling. Planning on planting Impatiens, Hosta and some other shade lovers on the left side. The right side is mostly sun. This is not the easiest wood to stencil.
A little morning glory vine.
Two little pots, a couple of flowers and a little grass. (for starters)
A little fern on this picket fence, so far.
It's FUN hardwork, like gardening! Any suggestions?

That is turning out to be as cute as I knew it would. Are you going to stencil on the sides of it too?

Darla said...

Susie, not sure about the sides and the back quite yet, would rather have real flowers growing to cover it.

Darla,
Your potting shed is soooo cute! Love the stenciling you have done! I know it will look great with flowers all around it!

your potting shed is coming along so nicely. if projects got done that fast around here i would have to hire a handyman. dh is handy but puts alot of things off. glad to see you having so much fun with your project. i will have to think about any suggestions. maybe painted shutters or a little birdie sitting on top of the doorway off to the side.

Darla: Very artitic, I didn't know about that talent. I guess I would like to see birds and butterflies as decorations and more of your neat flowers.

Peggy said...

Well done, Darla, that is going to look great,especially when it is surrounded by flowers.

Jen said...

Splendid!!
I am with fishing guy; birds and butterflies would be a nice touch; and why not even a raccoon.
Well, that last one is the Kentucky in me I guess.
