Sarah started with an old tuff shed a few ducks, some rabbits she had adopted, and her helpful friend, Carlos.
Last month, Carlos agreed to help insulate Sarah’s old garden shed. But Sarah decided that she wanted more than that! “I want to do something fun with the inside of the shed.”
So, after a bit of planning, “Duckingham Palace” came to fruition.
As you can see the house was big enough for both the rabbits and poultry, but would they get along? Just in case, they decided to split it into two sections.
They put beadboard (or wane’s coating) on the inside and the ceiling. Then Sarah painted the inside a tasteful lavender-gray color.
She decided that natural light wasn’t enough and drilled a hole through the shed so she could add some lights. These chic chandeliers were found on eBay. Instead of running wire, an extension cord was sufficient to attach the lights to a plug-in by Sarah’s garage.
This vintage paint-by-numbers of ducks in a pond looks so smart in its new gold frame. It goes perfectly on the duck side of the palace.
Sarah once again turned to eBay to find two rabbit-themed oil paintings. She bought a gold frame for the small painting and spray painted a cheap wooden frame for the big painting to match. They hang proudly on the rabbit side.
After giving the outside of the shed a fresh coat of paint, Sarah hung her final prize from eBay on the outside of the door.
She thought it fit well because the shed was now “so posh” now.” She hung it on the door outside of the shed.
The whole project took two weeks.
It is now the envy of all neighboring chicken keepers, we hope you find inspiration from it too!
Thanks to Sarah for sharing her remodel with us!
