So enough with the man caves already. Really? It took this long for the tide to turn and the woman of the house to get a shot at a little autonomy and peace? No matter how long it took, She Sheds are going viral, and they are so much cuter than a silly man cave anyway. (Cue “We Are the Champions”.) Seriously, your own space, and in the garden to boot? Let’s face it. We ladies deserve this. And guess what? You can have one! That’s right ladies, conjure up all those images in your mind you have for your Barbie dream house grown up version, and get to plannin’. And don’t forget to plan for a lock on the door. :) These she shed DIY tutorials and inspiring ideas will have you creating a space where you can finally have all the pillows you want, and no one throws them on the floor.
Our first DIY she shed is from ‘BHG’. This one was made using old windows and re-cycled materials. This could double as an amazing greenhouse as well! The post also has free plans for the framework of this shed.
This coastal style she shed from Danielle (and her husband) at ‘Finding Silver Pennies’ comes complete with a tutorial on the DIY shiplap walls and beadboard ceiling! They purchased a pre built shed for this project, then totally customized the inside. They even gave it it’s own gravel patio!
From ‘Hoosier Homemade’, this Farmhouse style she shed was built from the ground up! Complete instructions for the whole building in four easy to follow parts, from foundation to roofing. Such warm and charming decor! Don’t you just want to peek all the way inside? Well, you can if you go to the post! (Make sure you scroll all the way to the bottom for the links to the four part tutorial.)
This she shed craft retreat is just dreamy. From ‘The House that Lars Built’, I can’t imagine getting much done here except just being. Which is totally ok. Totally. From the rustic treehouse to the luxe faux fur in the interior, this shed is magic.
Want some straight forward plans on how to build a cheap storage shed? Then hop on over to ‘Family Handyman’ for the plans, step by step instructions and supply sheet. (Then style it with ideas from the rest of the bloggers in this post!)
Ok, if you are starting to feel like those amazing spaces are out of your budget, ‘Kloter Farms’ in Connecticut has a great take on a DIY version of a she shed that uses creative ideas and thrift store finds. Paper tissue flowers, string lights, an inexpensive Ikea chandelier, and our fav idea, papering the ceiling with old book pages! Of course, the paint choices , patterned rug and throw pillows and the tulle draping are all easy ideas anyone can do. Cute space!
From ‘House Beautiful‘, this she shed was a wedding gift from Kevin to Heather. (Lucky girl!) Kevin rebuilt an old potting shed and replaced the roof with tempered glass so it could be a greenhouse/ sunroom as well. Ok – Best. Groom. Ever.
Want something more modern or contemporary? ‘Modern Shed‘ has prefab shed designs just perfect for home offices or craft rooms with a more minimal flair.
This DIY she shed is from ‘Living Vintage’. Ok, this would be the best B&B ever, right? Lots of photos of them completing this project, love, love, love the rustic feel! AND the fact that they used reclaimed materials!
Lastly, from ‘Lowes’, lots of tutorials on the mechanics of building your own she shed and customizing it for what you need… Reading, yoga, potting shed, music, crafting, office… The list goes on!Image Credits: Lowes, BHG, Finding Silver Pennies, Hoosier Homemade, The House that Lars Built, Family Handyman, Kloter Farms, House Beautiful, Modern Shed, Living Vintage
