Welcome to the seventy-third post in the series
"Living Large in Small Spaces".
Hours spent in my garden shed this past week may have had something to do with my choice of today's small space feature. Cleaning and tidying up my little shed got me to thinking about backyard retreats and, well, then I got to searching online and found this shed turned shabby chic getaway.
From the shed's cupola -- rescued from a neighbor's home -- to the jadeite dish collection, everything was hand picked specifically for the space, much of it bought at auctions and garage sales.
The antique Quick Meal Stove's electric burners were installed prior to purchase. Until such time as the shed is electrified it remains unusable. Now it makes for a fun, homey decorative piece.
This window, created by the owner, is made from sea glass she collected in Key West.
A three-quarter size antique bed fits perfectly in the corner and pairs well with the wash stand, a family heirloom.
The original flooring was refinished. White walls visually expand the space and keep it light and bright. The blue ceiling is a nice touch and I imagine lying on the bed looking up one would have a sense of gazing up at the sky.
This charming dish flower in the garden is one of many crafted and sold by the owner.
At a mere 112 sq ft, this diminutive converted shed lives very large.
Do you have a backyard retreat?
