Pinspiration Monday: Dreaming of Spring and updating the backyard

Happy Monday all! It's Pinspiration Monday time.  ;)

With all the crummy weather going on over here in Pennsylvania, I've been dreaming of working on outdoor projects and fixing up our backyard. The hubs is determined to fix up our shed to be his new man cave, where as I want the fix up the deck to have a better "chill" space. If you missed my previous post, we've been trying to clean up the storage in our house and downsize the clutter, to make the shed into a "man cave" bar that my hubs has been dreaming about. We swung by Home Depot yesterday and priced out the materials to turn the shed into his dream bar on a budget. We are planning on stopping by the Habitat for Humanity's ReStore hopefully sometime this month to see if they have any materials on the cheap as well.
This is my hubs' plan for the "man cave" shed.

Towards the back (the tan area above the bar) is a lofted area, which we hope to make into a pillow/fabric/comfort spot- so I can chill and read a book (or play on my ipad) while the boys hang below. lol. Here is our shed:

However, first on the list is fixing up this rust bucket, before we can even start on the man cave:
It is a small side shed that we also have. We hope to put a new floor (I kind of fell through the rotting wood base when trying to clean it out), repaint, and add new doors (trying to figure out how we will do that with a metal base). If the cost to do all of that is less than buying a whole new mini shed- it is worth it. It will hold our bikes, lawn mower and garden supplies, so the big shed can be used for the bar. We also hope to be able to put the holiday decor in the attic- now that I've cleared a better path to it (the attic door is above my closet).

So, with all of that mind, here are some pins I've found on Pinterest that really have inspired me recently in these future projects!
 Pinspirations for the Deck:
Lena Sekine's Cinderblock Benches
Steven Liu's Tire Table with Glass Top
Martha Stewart's Sun Shade

Pinspirations for the Shed/Man Cave:
 Reader Shed's (actual submitter unknown) The Dog House Shed
Liz Caan Interiors' Reading Nook

Feel free to follow me on Pinterest (though be forewarned- I pin a LOT!)- that being the case, feel free to follow my Pinspirations board where I pin all of these pins for easy re-pinning!

Have a wonderful Monday everyone!
*fingers crossed* for Spring to get here soon!
