We purchased the Peacock Ranch in the fall of 2017. This shed is part of the property and has tons of untapped potential inside, but we are going slow and steady. Here’s what we accomplished so far …

At this point, we’ve lived here for several years and the exterior (and interior) of the shed have remained mostly untouched.

John picked up the smaller shed and moved it over here by the larger shed to make a space in the yard for our swing set with a view from the kitchen and living room.

(Also, what a dollie. I just can’t with this outfit. Photos are such a treasure. I looked through so many photos and this is the only one I could find of the shed before it was painted. BONUS, that our cutie is in the foreground!)

July 21, 2020 & July 26, 2020

According to my phone, the sheds were painted early in the Pandemic. (I remember it as an outdoor, socially distanced project that was a real pick-me-up for our morale on the renovations side.) We had the sheds painted, waited about a week and then hung up the barn quilts. We have two barn quilts that I made for our wedding and the other one went on a white shed.

These flowers were in bloom the day we hung the barn quilts and it makes me so excited for spring!

At this point, I decided to try the $17 Amazon magnet garage door item and see if it would work to spruce up the door. Here’s a photo from this spring, 2023, with the door magnets & barn quilt still going strong, despite year round exposure to the elements.

I can’t wait for the grass to green up and the trees to begin to put on leaves again!

What will we do next? I have no idea, but it is encouraging to step back and look at how far we’ve come.

Curiosity Question:

What slow & steady project are you working on right now?

Hey, I’m Sierra Shea! I am so glad you are here. 

Where do I start with writing to introduce this blog? At the beginning, I suppose: I’ve been writing on various platforms online since 2013. I started blogging shortly after moving to South Dakota.

I am a mother and a maker at heart. I’m so grateful to be married to John and mother of three: Joslyn, J.D. and Jesse.

I am a self-taught decorator and designer. I am a brand new shepherdess and a Spiritual Director.

I love living in South Dakota, even though the winters & the wind can be a near-daily struggle.

Blogging is a grounding force in my life and it helps get me out of my head, unstuck and moving in the directions I always hoped I’d be going!
