Genius Couple Created DIY Shed for Less Than $200 Using Recycled Materials


Are you in need of a shed makeover in your backyard? If so, no worries. Many of our sheds could use extra TLC, some much more so than others. If that sounds like you and your shed, allow this genius reddit user lumpytrout to be your inspiration.
