When Baby born we decided to divide our garden in half. We have dogs and I was so worried about them all being in the same space. I wanted somewhere fenced off that Baby would be safe away from the dogs and so our brother-in-law created a fabulous fence to run alongside the path that divides our garden in two.
With a bit of paint and quite a lot of hard work, Baby’s playhouse was installed in her side of the garden. The thing which let the side down was our old tatty shed which was at the other end of her garden, not quite the mirror image of her beautiful playhouse!
We were so pleased when George at ASDA offered to send us a garden building of our choice. Finally we could get rid of the battered old shed and create a shed fit for a princess garden. We still planned for it to house all of the normal dad-shed-stuff, but from the outside it would just fit better in her space.
We ordered the Fairwood 6×4 Shiplap Apex Shed. It arrived flat packed and after a friend put it together for us, it was ready to paint. I decided to do a shabby chic wash, choosing white for the main part of the shed, then colour washing pink on the door.
I felt we needed a masculine touch, so added this sign; just to make sure Mr Hubby knew it was his shed!
Baby loves her flower box and so I accessorised this with fairy doors, butterflies, tiny mushrooms and a little sign reminding us that fairies sleep here.
The shed now fits with Baby’s garden and doesn’t stand out like a sore thumb! Obviously she loves the fact that the fairies have moved in!
I think Mr Hubby might go out and buy some really manly tools to redress the masculine-feminine balance!
There are so many different types of garden buildings on the site and the prices would genuinely be hard to beat. So if you are in the market for a shed, summerhouse, playhouse or outdoor storage unit, do check out their site first as you might well bag a bargain.
Disclosure: We were sent this shed and accessories in return for an honest review.
