Simple Steps to Build a She Shed
A what now? That's right, we said a She Shed. Simply explained, it's a lady's version of a man cave. You'll see this new trend in blogs, Twitter and even on popular TV shows like The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. We've been following the idea, and last Saturday we debuted our very own She Shed!
If it sounds extravagent, unrealistic or out of budget range, throw that idea out the window! I'm going to walk you through the 7 easy and affordable steps of how you can design your own.
Step 1: Choose a shed
Find a shed that fits your personality and budget. Because sheds are our specialty, we recommend choosing a size, siding type and layout that will be the be both inviting from the outside and inside. After looking at a few choices, we went with the shed on the bottom.
Step 2: Choose your theme
Here's a few questions to get your creative mind going... What's your favorite hobby or leisure activity? What highlights your personality? How do you like to unwind? We thought about a few of our favorites, which included reading, DIY crafts, knitting, yoga, painting, etc. Eventually we landed on building a little reading nook.
Step 3: Go shopping!
It doesn't need to get expensive. Our store is filled with lots of inspiration and decorations. You can also hit up thrift stores, antique shops, flea markets, craft stores, tag sales, craft fairs and more. Check out the gems we found!
Step 4: Choose a color palette
Now that you have a fun variety of furniture, decorations and accents, choose paint colors that complement and enchance your selections.
Step 5: Get to work
Paint the inside of your shed.
Step 6: Add your furniture and accessories
Start piecing it all together! First, position the furniture, and then decorate with all the fun accessories. With each piece added, you'll have fun watching your She Shed come to life!
Step 7: Create a welcoming retreat
It's not just about the inside. Make your She Shed part of the landscape by adding flowers, stones and rocks, bushes and more.
