Give it New Purpose: If your old shed is just sitting unused in your garden, why not use a new concept for it? You have endless possibilities for a personalized space. You can turn your old shed into almost anything you want. You can turn it into a private retreat where you can escape from everyday life and relax, read, write, or paint. Or you could even transform it into a haven where you and your friends can enjoy afternoon tea without the kids screaming nearby. Another fantastic idea is to turn your shed into the private office you have always wanted.

Create a Secret Hideaway: Love the idea of having a secret hideaway right in your backyard? You can easily do this by planting ivy or any other climber next to your shed. Use a trellis to help the plant grow and eventually, it will blend in with the rest of your garden. If your shed has a porch on the front, you can give it an enchanting look with a climbing rose winding around the front entrance. Every time you need a little peace and quiet, you will have your very own beautiful secret place to hide in!

Add Windows: Most sheds do not have windows and are often dark and dingy inside. You can create a bright and airy space and transform your shed by adding windows. The rays of sunlight that come in will make your shed bright and also make it look a whole lot more spacious. You can use old windows that you may have lying about on your property or make new ones. Whatever you choose, introducing windows to your shed will give it new life and you will love it.

Give it a Fairy Tale Touch: Who does not love the pictures of cottages in fairy tale books? You can create your very own fairy-tale effect by adding fairy lights, bunting, or lanterns. These little additions will make your shed look quaint and cozy and give it a lot of sparkle. With detailing like these, your new oasis will be a far cry from the dark and dingy place that it was before. Create a magical space with this idea.

Surround it with Flowers: Are you tired of looking at your plain garden shed? Well, it is a garden shed, so why not make it look like one? Plant flowers and plants in pots and surround your shed with them. Your tools are all inside, but the flowers will show the work you have been doing. It is also an acute or alluring way to decorate and brighten up an old structure. Adding flowers around your shed will make it look pretty and also enhance your entire yard.

Personalize it with Homemade Stencils: You can add a personal touch to your shed with DIY stencils. The best thing about this idea is that stencils are really easy to make. All you have to do is print your design to size and cut it out using a Stanley knife. Next, stick your stencil in the position you want and paint it over with the same shade of the surface that you are painting on to. Once it dries, paint it over with the second color. Simple and cheap, this is a fabulous idea when you want to give your shed a new, custom look.

As you can see, the possibilities are endless when you want to change the way your rickety old garden shed looks. You can add beautiful colors, or windows, or stencils – the ideas can just keep flowing. All you need is a little imagination. A garden shed is a fantastic space so make the most of it. If you do not like gardening, turn it into another space that you can make good use of. Just remember to make it symbolize your personality.
