I really NEED some storage in the backyard, but I'd really LIKE a cute little cottage in the backyard.


But, if the inside looks like this fun room, there won't be much room for any storage.

This one looks big enough that I might be able to have something cute in the front part and still have room for some storage in the back half, but this one also looks like it would be very expensive.

Isn't this one charming?  I'm afraid it would also be out of my budget.

I don't have to have EVERYTHING I want.

And, as I've already said, what I NEED is storage.

Of course, storage with charm would be ideal.

But I'm afraid that charm comes at a price.

This looks like it could almost be a vacation cottage.


Isn't this just the cutest thing?  I NEED this for storage,


AND I NEED this, so I can decorate the inside!

Sigh.  Somehow I have gone from worrying about the expense of a storage building to NEEDING two buildings in the backyard.  Is there any hope for a dreamer like me?

Whatever I get, hopefully I can at least have a space similar to this.

This will be the first weekend in a very long time that I don't have to travel somewhere to campaign. I am so thankful to have that behind us.  Wishing you a relaxing weekend. That's what I intend to have. laurie

They are all so cute, it would be hard to pick one. I miss the one I had when I lived in Utah. Now that I am back in Las Vegas, all I see is cactus. lol.

Go to Lowes or Home Depot and get one of there little wood sheds and fix it up. My son got one and made a little sewing room for his daughter - painted the inside,put in a sewing machine table, shelves, lights and even a little heater when it gets chilly. So many things you can do. Also look on Craig's list.
Good hunting. Have a nice relaxing weekend.

HI Laurie, LOVE any of these sheds. I so wish I had some room left for my hubby to build one in our backyard. They are all dreamy.
Have a great weekend.
Blessings dear friend~

Laurie, all of these are adorable! I would love to have any one of these in the rear corner of the yard, under the shade tree!

Marigene said...

Any of those would be welcome in my back yard...hope you get the one of your choice, Laurie!
Have a great weekend.

These are all such pretty little structures, Laurie! We had a shed and a pool house at our old house. I would have loved to have done our shed up cute inside but it housed the lawn mower and snow blower. Two big pieces of equipment that would have made it difficult for a cute little chair and table to fit! : )

Ok, now I want a playhouse in the backyard!! Wouldn't it be so much fun to fix up and store dishes, and tablescape, and buy stuff for and uh oh, mine would probably be full of spiders...maybe I don't want one after all :) Your first photo of the interior is heaven!
