diy black & white shed

Welcome to our new home!!

In a bid to save thousands of dollars, rather than purchasing a nice new shed, we decided to give our inherited and worse for wear one a refresh. Above is what it originally looked like.

We purchased inexpensive solar lights, shrubs, hinges, mat, reused a deck/table, and painted it all black and white. In the end we spent under $200.


I hope that you will follow along with my blog as we navigate renovations in our new house. We have many more to come your way!

  1. I’ve only followed a short time.. you live in the shed? Just clarifying. I love the outside renovation! Nicely done and so much money saved!

      Hahahahhahaha! No, we don’t live in the shed. When I said welcome to our new home I meant that this is the first DIY in our new location. So welcome! Maybe I should’ve been more specific.

      Regardless, thanks!


      • Lol. One never knows. I like the concept of tiny homes. I was guessing you didn’t- but wasn’t certain. Still- it looks cozy!

          I would LOVE a tiny home. I have been trying to convince my husband to build one for probably a decade now, but he just won’t give in. I think he gets hung up on the size and doesn’t quite see the practicality of it all. Maybe one day … just not this tiny. ;-)


          • I think if I was on my own it would be fine. But I doubt my husband would survive it and definitely not with my tween. Lol. Maybe if we each had our own? My son and I watched tiny house nation once and the family had three that were attached by a deck. The couple had a bedroom with a bathroom, the living space with kitchen was in the middle and the son (older teen) had his own. Lol. Of course I’m thinking that defeats the purpose of a tiny home 🤷‍♀️
