12 Beautiful Outdoor Wood Storage Sheds

January 9, 2017

A series of beautiful outdoor wood storage sheds that will give you serious garden envy!

White Outdoor Storage Shed with Goat

I am embarrassed to tell you that I have just ordered the shed for the boys. I had plans to do this before Thanksgiving, but the weeks slipped by, and before I knew it, 2016 was gone. What should’ve been here in the new year, now won’t be here until Valentine’s Day.

Part of what held me back, was my quest in finding the perfect inspiration. Some might balk at my desire to have a beautiful shed for my babies, but this is important business. I finally took a few hours out of my day to search outdoor storage sheds online in hopes of finding the perfect design.

As I drafted my email with my inspiration photos to the owner of the shed company, I silently apologized to him for my nuttiness. By the time my email was complete, I had 12 bullet points of requests.

Bullet point 9 read: 

“I’d like this to be floor-less, as it will be for my goats.”

I wonder if he continued reading.

Narrowing down my ideal design to one inspiration image was incredibly difficult because there are so many beautiful storage sheds to select from. Since I can’t have it all, I thought it might be nice to round them up into one post for us to admire just how beautiful outdoor storage sheds can be.

Where to buy beautiful outdoor storage or garden sheds?

We purchased ours from a local shed company in town. I was able to customize the shed to fit my needs, such as adding a loft and increasing the door height and roof pitch. I am sure you have a local company that builds these in your area.

If you would like to purchase plans, you can visit Country Carpenters who offer plans for sale – their sheds and carriage houses are jaw droopingly beautiful! There are many sites like this out there that offer plans if you would like to build the shed yourself or hire a contractor to do so!

12 Beautiful Outdoor Wood Storage Sheds

This storage shed is the water pump house on the ranch. I have a little bit of a love affair with this building. The old shingles, the board & batten siding, the wood frame window – they all speak to my old-world loving soul. The chickens seem to quite like this building too.

Two words: dream shed. I don’t have much else to say about that.

Found via Country Living, it looks as if this might be a guest bedroom cottage. I love the natural wear on the boards, and the little garden path leading up to the entrance. I think I could find myself right at home in this little space.

This shed design is by Country Carpenters who offer plans to build absolutely stunning carriage houses and barns!! Check out their site and their Instagram for more details about working with them!

The gold hardware on the slant roof shed has inspired me to add gold hardware to ours once it is ready. Don’t you think that will be beautiful?

Anything with a wreath instantly steals my heart. I love the little farmhouse light above the barn doors, and the mint color of the siding is the perfect pop of color.

Speaking of blue doors… This is Kendall Charcoal from Benjamin Moore, the perfect shade for outdoor storage sheds or garden sheds.

Isn’t this little carriage house cottage charming?

  1. The picture of the white garden shed just above the words cape cod is from Country Carpenters in Hebron CT We design and sell beautiful post and beam outbuildings. If you are going to use our pictures please at least give us some credit.

  2. Although wooden sheds require much more maintenance than their resin cousins the tender loving care they need is worth it. A good one ages so gracefully. I love the one taken from Yvestown website, what a beauty.

  3. Yes i have one in my property and definitely it’s a dream shed because i have made lot of efforts in making that particular shed.

  4. My wife and I just started a home business in which our shed is our workspace and showroom. We build custom home decor and furniture in farmhouse style!!
    Our page, Kinat’s Farmhouse 2 Tables on Facebook has pictures of our shed!

  5. The unknown source garden shed (last pic I think) from Pinterest is the garden shed in the Colonial Williamsburg historic garden in Williamsburg, VA! I love it too:)

  6. Storage sheds are really beneficial for bikes. I have recently made one for my bike and car, after placing both into it i locked the door of the shed. This help me in preventing the entry of thefts in the shed also.
