Oh my goodness, I am SO excited to share this post with you today!
Have you heard the term “She Shed” before? It is something that seems to be trending lately. I know I have been pinning them (and dreaming about one) for a couple years now. I think they are so adorable. If you do a Pinterest search, you will see a bunch of inspiration. It is basically a little outdoor retreat… like a man cave but for us girls, a girl cave I guess! I have noticed a bunch of different kinds of SheSheds, from little cozy living spaces, to offices, to craft rooms and art studios… all in quaintly transformed little sheds.
We have worked SO hard to makeover our beautiful TuffShed (I shared about the installation and shed details HERE) and it has been such a fun, dream project! A couple days ago, my She Shed reveal went up on The Home Depot’s blog HERE. I was so thrilled to partner with The Home Depot on this project! It was lots of hard work and DIY projects, but overall so much fun. I am so thankful for a hubby who is so committed to always bringing my dreams to life.
My sister Devan, Devan Rae Photography, and I had a lot of fun photographing the shed. I actually have a broken hand and she came to my rescue!
To give you an idea of what we were working with, here is a before and after shot of the exterior:
We planted a bunch of flowers, shrubs, and a tree. We also built a DIY deck to act as a nice transition from the planters to the shed.
And here is the inside!
You can see how different the before and after look:
I have a BUNCH of tutorials and details coming up on the blog, so stay tuned! I will also be answering all of the questions I have been getting in another post.
Being a small space, I really wanted every corner to have special elements that were very “me” or “my style.” I had to edit my thoughts down quite a bit to really make the space charming and peaceful without being overwhelming! We started by installing beadboard on the walls, staining the beams, and adding planks to the ceiling. I used a bright white in the space to make everything light and airy. Tutorials, and before and afters, to come! (To read all about our woodwork, stain and paint colors, click HERE)
I went with a soft, fairly muted color scheme, with mainly accents of serene dusty blues.
The sectional and striped pillows are from Home Decorators Collection and are so comfy. I love just snuggling up out here.
I wanted the room to still have a garden feel, so I added little touches in the sign, bottles, and botanical prints. I will be sharing all of the details on this sign(with a free printable pattern for the sign) and bulletin board in the next week or so.
One of my very favorite projects was my little bookshelf in the gable. When I found out that I would be doing this project, it was one of the very first things that I knew I wanted to do in the space. I thought it was a perfect use for an otherwise unusable space. There isn’t electricity out here, so the vintage chandelier isn’t functional… just for being pretty. You should see the “before” on this chandy before I fixed it up! I will show you in another post, so stay tuned.
I stole the antique dresser from my mom (thanks mom!) and added a few of my favorite antiques to dress it up… with a bunch of limelight hydrangeas. I LOVE when the limelights start to bloom!
I also stole the curtains from my mom. I love how soft and feminine they make everything! I LOVE this view now!
The little caned side chair is another one of my thrifted makeovers, and you will laugh pretty hard when you see how gross the “before” is!
I have so much more to tell you about this whole space, and I will be sharing even more details and tutorials, so stay tuned!
