I definitely will find a use fir it, but it would look awful against the pink. Maybe I can paint some of the inside of the shed as it’s currently black.

You can get a genuine cabinet for MAME conversion from the UKVAC Facebook group for under £100 if you are lucky.

Hello. I k ow I keep posting pictures of my busted old shed, but it makes me super happy, and every time I add a bit to it, it makes me feel great. Russell cleaned and repaired the broken base of this wooden trough planter I found discarded somewhere, so I painted it with the yellow that did indeed arrive as promised, and today I’ve put a liner in it, filled it and planted some Night Phlox (pretty white flowers that smell strongly of sugared almonds at night time) and something else that came free with an magazine.

No, I know the shed is silly. If it were a decent shed I’d make it look a lot more sedate and subtly pretty, but it’s in a terrible state snd I think I just need to get this out of my system. I’ve lived with magnolia walls everywhere for a decade. Darwin loves it, too, and that really helps.

It’s so dark inside (painted black) that I must paint in there as well.

I agree.

I don't think it looks silly at all no matter what it's age or state. It looks happy. :)

I made a thing. It's just a square table with a hole in it to keep the fire pit off the ground. It's made of some pretty crappy scrap wood from my jink pile, nothing fits right, nothing is square, but it doesn't wobble and it looks like I imagined it would. I'm proud of it.

Maybe a bit of aluminium tape around the inner edge might help. I don't mind a bit of scorching, the whole thing cost the grand total of 24 screws

It’s a win-win. You could have invented the world’s first self-fuelling fire pit.

Had to paint the newly plastered bathroom ceiling yesterday. I hated every second of it. Two coats of paint on so far, and it’ll need at least one more.

I have replaced a huge rotten mess, with two smaller raised beds.

Now to look at what I can grow.

I did, but clearly not very well.

even so, it's looking a lot better now.

I genuinely think that those splashes of colour look great, super cheery and would be a nice focal and also talking point.

You can't quite see the back left vertical, which makes the photo really upsetting because it looks like it's different on either end.

No, someone lit a BBQ on the next street and it spontaneously combusted

I like the idea of a fire pit, but wouldn't have one. Our neighbours used to have one, so we'd sit around their's on summer evenings, which had the advantage of not being up to us to tidy up the mess it made.

If it was up to me, we wouldn't have a barbecue either, but it's not and we do.

I'm such a killjoy.

There was massive trees which have been taken down. Hence the small fence.

I am replacing with either a 5ft of 6ft fence not decided yet..
