I love being outdoors, listening to the birds chirping and feeling the soft breezes as they stir through the trees. I’ve been known to go outside and spend the entire day there, either digging in the yard or just whiling around the hours on the porch completely lost in a good book.
Recently, I came across the most wonderful outdoor space, truly a dream garden. I’m pretty sure when we pass on one day, this is how heaven will look!
This beautiful paradise belongs to Donna Jenkins who has an up and coming site called, The Tinkerhouse Trading Company. I’m looking forward to checking it out as soon as it goes live.
Donna and her hubby created this wonderful greenhouse-style potting shed using reclaimed windows and doors. Thirty-four windows were repurposed in the design of this beautiful outdoor room.
Nearby there’s a comfortable seating area with aqua Adirondack chairs Donna’s son made while taking a high school shop class.
Let’s go inside this wonderful garden house and take a little look around.
Donna’s hubby built this wonderful potting bench and he even gave it running water! I absolutely love all the soft colors Donna chose for the painted surfaces in this darling garden room. They are so beautiful paired with the warm colors of the terracotta pots and the natural wicker cases that offer additional storage. This summer house is proof that practical spaces can also be completely charming!
I love the tool storage for those most oft used tools like shovels, rakes and weed puller-outers.
If you get a bit tired from all that potting, have a seat and relax in this lovely spot. Donna will serve you a nice glass of iced, sun tea she made right here in her back yard oasis.

It’s amazing all the cool things that can be made with old windows. I love this adorable tabletop green house I came across while antiquing one day. See more of it in this post: Make a Greenhouse from Old Discarded Windows
Angela built her garden shed from an old play set her children had outgrown and were no longer using. Such a genius idea! Read more about how she did it in this previous post: Build a Garden Shed From a Child’s Play Gym Set
