Party Shed

In our backyard, attached to our garage we have a "carport" turned bonus space, it's a 3 season - screened in area. We've used it for many different things; storage, a work-out spot, crafts and several parties. I decided it was time to clean it up, re-organize, and revive the space. And a new name was in order - we decided to call it our "Party Shed!"

The kids painted boxes that are very helpful in hauling things back and forth from the party shed to the house.

 The final painted product. Red, white and blue... ahh... my favorite colors of all time!
My crazy bucket chandelier. I went through a lot of spray paint on this project.

Decorating with all of my old "junk" that I love! Old oars, enamelware, skiis, oooh they make me smile... a lot!

I've been collecting these skiis for awhile now. The tall white ones were my dad's he skiied on them as a child and the rest have been yard sale, thrift store and ebay finds.

There it is, all ready for a party! And my old metal chairs are ready too!
