There are garden sheds that are impractical to demolish or rebuild for practical reasons. They can spoil the overall landscape. Turn them into garden design objects. The original decor will help to distract attention from the shortcomings. You will no longer have to repaint these buildings.

The wall of a small garden shed can be decorated with an original panel in the form of a false window. In addition to this bright spot, decorate the door that leads inside the shed in the appropriate style. Such a successful tandem will completely transform the old building, and most importantly, it will not take much time, but it will bring much fun!

Paint the wall of the building in a light colour, then arrange an exhibition of household items, hobby products or teapots, mugs or fishing lures on it. Thus, a lot of old unnecessary things will become original exhibits of your garden.

Make an inlay: decorate one or more walls of a shed with a mosaic of colored broken ceramic tiles and dishes. Both abstraction and a clear ornament will look advantageous.

If you want to have a beautiful green corner, but your backyard is very small for gardening, think about vertical gardening. In this case, it involves decorating the wall with wooden frames in which succulents can grow. You can easily remove the frame if the weather is bad, or if the warm season ends.

If you prefer the simplest option, hang several pots with plants on the wall of the shed. Combine several pots at different levels to create a pleasant composition. Pots can be both ceramic and plastic. If desired, you can also add original decorative planters (knitted, leather, etc.).

You can plant flowers in a wall shelf for storing slippers. To do this, take a shelf for slippers, hang it on the wall, insert small pots of flowers into each cell, and that’s it.

Attach the old windows to the wall, creating a certain composition at your discretion. For example, you can paint it antique and make it in a rustic style, or just paint and insert cleanly washed glasses. You can attach oblong flowerpots with flowers under the window. Mirrors can be inserted into the window frames instead of glass, this will not only make them look original, but also help visually enlarge your patio.

If you have several wooden boxes in your attic, it doesn’t matter if they are the same or not, they will help create a wonderful exposition on the wall of the shed. Paint the boxes in different colours (if desired, you can use one tint) and nail them to the wall next to each other vertically or horizontally, forming hanging shelves. After that, put pots with flowers in the drawers, or dishes for a garden tea party, and the shed decoration is ready.

To decorate the walls of the shed, you can use old chairs and any “junk”. You can, for example, paint the chairs in a bright colour, attach them to the walls, and put flowers on the seats. You can use plates, old signs, and whatever else you have.

Or maybe you still have an old rusty bike, which you can not use to ride. Use it for decorating shed walls. Put the bike next to the shed, attach a box with flowers on top of the trunk, and that’s it!

As you can see, there can be many ideas for decorating a garden shed in the UK. And it all depends on your imagination and ingenuity.
