While I was in Seattle yesterday I stopped by a few of my favorite stores. One of them was Ravenna Gardens. I don’t think I’ve actually ever purchased anything from Ravenna Gardens, but I sure like to look around.
I didn’t know I was looking for a garden shed, but yesterday I found the perfect one.
It this shed cute or what? With the exception of the copper roof, I have a feeling the entire shed was made with salvaged materials. Oh how I would LOVE to have this shed sitting in our backyard.
Now I don’t know about you, but I’ve been through my fair share of garden projects with my husband over the years, and the last thing I would do is ask him to build this for me.
For starters, he would say it looks like crap. Then, it looks like it will fall over, then, why would you want a new shed that looks old? What’s wrong with you? If you want a shed why don’t you just go to Costco like all the other housewives in the neighborhood.
See what I mean… It’s not worth it to ask him to build one for me because I already know how the whole conversation will play out. This happens to people when they’ve been married for almost 20 years.
So instead of asking the HH, I did what I always do when I find something super cool, I texted Chino the Handy Man and sent him a bunch of pictures.
He said he could build it and for me, and I should start looking for old barn wood and two windows. Yee-Haw!
I think as long as Girly Girl doesn’t find out how much the original price on the shed was, I can get Chino to build it for about 1/10th of the price. I’ll keep you posted!
