A garden shed can be plain and functional, or decorative. A garden shed is a unit that is used for storing garden tools, fertilizer, lawn mowers and other items used to care for lawns and gardens. Even though the garden shed serves practical purposes, it can be attractive. The right decor and accessories can help your garden shed blend with the landscape so it doesn’t look out of place and you don’t feel the need to hide it. Here are several ideas to decorate your garden shed. If you want the shed to seem like an extension of the garden, use plants to help decorate it. Adding window boxes to the shed’s exterior and putting plants in them is an option, particularly if the house has window boxes. An alternative is to put plants in hanging pots that are attached to the shed’s exterior. Brighten the garden shed with colorful flowering plants.
Then, decorating with vintage gardening tools gives a garden shed some charm. Mount antique pails and watering cans on an interior or exterior wall; they can hold equipment and supplies or even be used as plant containers. Vintage garden spades, shovels, pitchforks and other hand tools also can be wall decorations. Stacking a collection of colorful, vintage flowerpots outside the shed will help brighten its appearance, or use the pots to decorate shelves inside the shed.
