The She Shed
I’ve suddenly got a huge burst of creative energy and onto a new project. Didn’t I just post that I was going to finish all the backlogged projects first? I am, I am. The weather finally cooled off to a lovely 85 degrees and I can actually work outside without wilting. I was itching to get started on something around “the estate” but had to settle into having to wait until fall, when the high temperatures subsided. Yesterday morning I was wide awake at 4:30 am and found my creative mojo was in full force.
My inspiration came from the internet and all the talk about “She Sheds” – the newest trends for women. After all, the “man cave” has been a topic for years, why not a special place for us gals. Since I already have the bones for a good place to start; the bath house out back used in the old days to change and shower, now just a storage shed of sorts.
It has two large windows and a little covered patio off to the side. Does it look like it needs a lot of work? Yes! Though the structure is solid and really needs just some cosmetic changes. (A little heavenly light beams falling around this space, lol)
First getting rid of the warped boards on the pergola above the patio. I had help on getting those down, but when I saw all those lovely, aged redwood strip still in great condition, I couldn’t help myself in conjuring numerous ideas to reuse those for future projects.
Here are some of the inspiring pictures of other she sheds that some pretty creative people have done. You can even use an old travel trailer to fix up to call your little get away!
