The summer potting shed is full of pretty on repeat. I mentioned recently that I had picked up some vintage baskets at the thrift stores and promised to share where they landed. So today sharing a quick peek inside the potting shed at the table area.
The potting shed is a wee building full of personality. It is a little spot where I will take fresh cut flowers to clip leaves or find the perfect little pot for a new plant to sit and grow in. It is a messy kind of a little shed but it sparks creativity and quiet flower filled moments for me.
Currently, it is looking a bit more like a flower shop since I filled the table with baskets and buckets full of peonies and other fresh cut flowers from the garden. When that crazy winter storm come through in December -it did some damage to the potting shed roof. So with the damaged roof repair- it is going to be getting a bit of a refresh before rainy season moves in this fall. We are considering a few changes with the windows and placement of this table but aren’t 100% sure just how that will come together yet. I will keep you posted.
For now, we have kept it pretty much the same as last year inside- simple and sweet and pretty much down to gardening business. But as you can see, I added those collected vintage baskets to the wall to create a different backdrop for a bit.
Vintage Baskets & Bee Skeps
Always favorites in the potting shed and garden- vintage baskets are perfect for filling with flowers, gathering weeds as you pull them or doing a good job just looking pretty on the wall.
At the top of the wall- we used a large branch to hang dried flowers from – and also looped a few baskets and bee skeps on the branch nubs there as well. The bee skeps are vintage from Europe- they are old woven wicker with layers of mud that has long been dried on them. Perfect rusty and crusty and delightful. Stay tuned for a post that is all about these bee skeps- I found some really good get the look options that I will share.
In the garden right now- we have a whole lot going on in the bloom department. Wee new foxgloves, scabiosa, dahlias, garden roses and naturally growing sweet peas are blooming along the path. Some of the foxgloves are drying out already- but there are a few small ones coming in and the sweet peas are really starting to take off. Last year they didn’t do much so I am excited to see them starting out a bit more enthusiastic this year.
Get the Look
Click the photo to shop the look- I found baskets in several shapes and sizes that I think would look beautiful displayed on a wall- in a potting shed or in the house. I also included a couple other things to get the look. *affiliate links
