Curtis Emmet | Great Garden Shed Ideas

I love the idea of taking an old garden or storage shed and converting it to outdoor living space, or even just into a funtional gardening prep area.  They bring whimsy and character to any property.  Here are a few of my favorite ideas I’ve found.

Great example of an old shed converted to a garden shed with reclaimed doors and church windows. It retains it’s old rustic appears yet is funcitonal and unique. From

Here’s an old garden shed that has been converted to a small cabin for living space. With a new metal roof, windows, porch and a fresh coat of paint, it’s now suitable as studio space or perhaps even overnight sleeplng space. From

Perhaps my favorite garden shed conversion.  These folks kept the original rustic appears of this old storage shed and installed windows all around.  Complete with a stone patio and surrounding gardens, who wouldn’t want to spend an afternoon here with a good book and cup of cofee?
