She-Shed Reveal – A Coastal Glam Home Office

Come take a tour of our backyard shed turned home office! This beautiful she-shed is now the proud home to our interior design business!

In just 8 weeks, we’ve transformed a dark, dirty storage shed into a bright, coastal-glam home office. What started out as a standard 10ft x 16ft backyard shed has been turned into a stunning living space – outfitted with all sorts of stylish finishes, like a custom clawfoot desk, crystal light fixtures and a cement tile accent wall. After hours of hard work, we’ve created something fabulous, and we can’t wait to share it with you!

She Shed Project Update

She-Shed Project Update – My Future Home Office

I think my favorite thing about a she-shed is that it’s detached from the home, so it can become a sanctuary of sorts. We are currently in the process of converting our backyard shed into my she-shed, which will not only be my place of refuge from the craziness of life, but will also be my home office for the business. I can’t wait to have a place to “go to work” but still be available at home. Today I’m sharing with you an update on our she-shed project as we finish up the demolition phase and move into the second phase which includes electrical, insulation and drywall!

While there are well over 5 benefits to gardening in raised beds, I wanted to focus in on the ones we’ve experienced when it comes to using CEDAR raised beds. We are huge advocates for using cedar lumber in the construction of raised beds – whether they’re to hold flowers, vegetables, or even just greenery – and hope this post will enlighten you as to how much the material you build your beds out of matters.
