OK I want to start with the after or you might not even look. A couple of years ago we changed out our old metal shed, the doors were bent and I had painted it to match the house and did anything I could think of to make it look better, but it was a windowless pit with mice and bees. YUK! I threw tools and stuff in there but never used it to pot up plants or do any work.
My windows open and I have an old window my son put in on the end that looks over my potting bench. My hubby took off the wood ramp that was way to steep and put down this nice big stone step. I painted and added window boxes.
