If you love DIY projects as much as I do, you probably often wish for a She-Shed. This is a space where you can escape to for completing your projects in peace and quiet. This means away from the Hubby and kids. The She-Shed is the perfect place where you can sip a glass of wine, enjoy a visit with your neighbors, work on planting flowers, create crafts, or even sit back with your tablet and surf the web. Move over boys and make room for the She-Shed!
A quick perusal of the She Shed topic on Pinterest will show you that there are literally hundreds of She-Shed ideas floating around cyberspace. You will find them from very high-end units with heating/air, daybeds for napping, and winde fridges. Also, you will find workspaces specially geared to your crafts and gardening projects with tool storage, a work counter, and comfy seating.
Whichever you prefer, the She-Shed is a place for you! The entire point is to escape and enjoy your time.
The images that I’m sharing here are my ideal She-Sheds. These are She-Sheds that I used as inspiration for my own She-Shed (photos will follow when I finish the project). Because I love gardening, furniture refinishing, and landscaping projects, I want a space where the tool bench accomodates my little 5’2″ height. I envision a place that is outdoorsy and organic. The opulent She-Shed is appealing to many, but it’s just not for this Bertie County girl.
Take a look at a few of the She-Sheds that inspire me.
My She Shed is currently a work in progress. It was started by clearing my husband’s scrap wood pile out from under our lean-to, clearing the cobwebs, and removing old wasps nests. It will shape up in the next few days. Once finished, I will share my own photos for inspiration.
So, ladies, tell your husbands to make room for you. Mama wants a She Shed!
