Never thought I'd be a Blogger, but here goes! Step One of my Salvage-Chic Backyard Makeover!

I have to admit, I never thought I'd be a blogger, but here I am with my first post...who knew?  I've become addicted to Confessions of a Curbside Shopaholic.  I eagerly await each new fabulous project she takes on and absolutely love the outdoor kitchen.  She has become my inspiration to create the Salvage-Chic Backyard of my Dreams!  My goal is to create an outdoor dining room for entertaining guests, and to create a great outdoor living area complete with chic salvage garden landscaping.  I'm a new blogger, so be kind!

The first step in the Dream Backyard is a Shed Makeover, because my shed was the eye-sore of my back yard - a a hideous old white aluminum.  Below is the before/after of the paint job.  I'm planning to add a vintage window with a shelf to the side, and hang some fun salvage chic decor.
Shed Before Paint - So Ugly!

Shed After Paint

Vintage Windows bought on Craigs List - one will go on the side of my shed.  Lots of options for using the rest!

Vintage Doors from Craigs List - Make a table? Make a Garden Trellis?  So many options!


  1. I love your blog! Can't wait to see the beautiful little shed you create.

  2. Why hello there! Welcome to blogland. I saw you had linked to my blog and came over to say hi . I'm honored to be your inspiration for your Dream Backyard. Looks like you have some great plans and lots of great materials to work with. Can't wait to see it all come together. I'll be back! (btw, you have word verification turned on in your comment settings, something you really want to turn off to make it easier for folks like me to leave comments, k?)

  3. Thanks for your comment on my blog! I was ecstatic to see that I got a comment from my favorite blogger. I love your blog and your outdoor kitchen, the fabulous vintage door projects, and the benches you've made from headboard/footboards. I love all the unique items that you make from curbside finds!

    I'm new to blogland, so I appreciate your tip about removing word verification (which is now off). I look forward to continuing to be inspired by your posts!


I adore comments and read them all! Please let me know what you think!
