It was such a fantastic experience to work with Cynthia Bee of The Conservation Garden Park and Jordan Valley Home and Garden Club on this Man Cave. For the exterior of the shed we wanted to go for a bang with this drain pipe vertical garden idea.
It has been all over Pinterest in various forms.
We selected a color to match our front porch table, that was a Thrift Store find and Cynthia went about designing the project by using inexpensive items that can be found at Home Depot.
On our shed, Cynthia cut the drain pipe 8 feet long, the width of the shed.
She then cut out sections for planting. We loved the deep teal paint that we used on the table on the front porch (you know it's one of my favorite colors), so the drain pipes and end caps all got a coat of paint. You can see that the rest of the installation was pretty simple. Hooks, S Hooks and Chain.
It was so much fun to see people's reactions to this installation. Everyone went nuts for the succulents, although, this would make a pretty fantastic kitchen garden with lettuce and herbs.
Our Man Cave door was pretty incredible. It was a fabricated metal sliding barn door.
But it wasn't complete with out a wreath, if you will.....so this vintage dart board was just the right touch.
And you can see the scale below. It's a pretty small Shed, 8 feet by 7 feet total. But it was seriously the perfect size for a Man Cave, Office or what I would have loved to use it for...a Studio.
