How to Create a Swoon-worthy She Shed You’ll Love

by Suzanne M. Harvey


We are sad for Sheryl…her she shed burnt down. But great news she will need a new one. And these are the key elements to create the swoon-worthy she shed we all dream of.

#1 – Away from the House

Even in a smaller yard, you need some distance from your house. The she shed can’t be too close or you will get interrupted by your family. And you will not be able to fully enjoy your she shed.

#2 – Comfy Seating

This will be your place to lounge in peace & quiet, so you need to be able to snuggle into the right furniture. A small cozy love seat and chair will be the perfect spot to relax with a great book. Maybe even sneak away to take a mid-afternoon nap.


#3 – Color

This is your private space. Take your favorite color as inspiration for the palette for your space. This is your time to go super girly or use that color that everyone else hates. Make it all yours!!

#4 – Snacks & Drinks

You need a stash of your favorite beverages & snacks for this retreat. Stock a mini fridge with drinks & snacks. And you will need a coffee pot. Then you can stay there for the whole weekend…or longer!


#5 – Pretty Lighting

Now is your chance. Those beautiful sparkling light fixtures with all the crystals & bling…this is the perfect spot for them. Make sure you have ceiling lights & table lamps so you can set the mood that you want.


#6 – A Good Lock & Secret Code

This is your space. You get to decide who comes in. So get that door locked and give your girlfriends a secret code to enter. NO BOYS ALLOWED!


A she shed is the perfect getaway from the craziness of life. Don’t have a shed you can convert…no problem. Steal a guest room in your house and create a mini oasis just for you.
