Valerie's Re-Purposed Greenhouse - Shed!

This week I was invited over to one of my students homes here in Fallbrook CA. where I live. She had asked me several times to come see her beautiful victorian home. I finally got the chance to go over but what I was so charmed by ( although her home is quite beautiful!) was this little shed that they had so imaginitively built out of old windows, doors, shutters, fretwork, and a picket gate. So cute! Thank you Valerie for such a pleasant afternoon and especially for that homemade peach pie you sent me home with! XO Christie



  1. This is quite charming! Hugs Mary

  2. Oh, I've fallen in love with that little shed!

  3. Oh my goodness! No kidding! That little house is CA-UTE!! I'm having shed envy right now! *winks* Vanna

  4. Well, isn't that just the cutest little repurposed materials shed ever? I love it and I am glad you were there to enjoy it! xo Diana

  5. Such a darling little shed Christie. THank you for sharing the photos on our blog. I can see why you are so taken with it.
    hugs to you...

  6. I had such a great visit with you, Christie!!!! I love seeing things from your artistic perspective. Glad you liked out Victorian greenhouse (and the pie)!!! One of these days, I will paint the greenhouse like the "Victorian painted ladies". The greenhousse is particularly beautiful when the jackaranda tree drops its periwinkle blooms on the lawn in front of the shed...there is a gorgeous blanket of colors on the ground, and the roses nearby are in bloom. I feel as though I'm living in paradise. I am truly blessed!!!! Hugs to you Christie!!!!

  7. Christie, That shed is wonderful! I have several old windows and have often dreamed of building something on the same line. Looks like your friend made her dream come true! What a neat little place to sit and enjoy a summers day and some peach pie!

  8. A charming way to recycle windows and doors.
    I love this shed.

  9. Lovely shed.... and the peach pie looks pretty good too! Hope you have a wonderful day!!!
