Why have you got a shed? uses etc

Potting plants, planning garden, listening to radio, drinking tea or wine, eating cake, dreaming of giving up full time work and pottering all day…

How would you describe your shed?

sunny, pretty haven for active pottering and potting, full of useful, beautiful and re-used and salvaged items. The coat hook on the back of the door is an unwanted gold plated bathroom hook. The Lloyd Loom cupboard was rescued from a skip.

Who are your Shed inspirations

the potting shed at Harlow Carr in Harrogate inspired the blue-washed painted interior.

Future Shed plans

“fit electrical socket in the right place (never let your husband put it where he thinks it will be useful!)

Add some more lovely old garden tools”

If you think you have a shed that can compete with Geoff’s in the Shed of the year competition then why not share it over at and you could be in the running for the £1000 prize from Cuprinol and your shed could have the title of Shed of the year 2012 🙂
