Plain and simple. I want a she-shed. Now that Chi-chi has passed (God rest her soul), I am the only female in this house. I clean up piss from shotty aiming in the bathrooms. I find garments ranging from socks to underwear to shirts, lying on the sofa. After soccer tournaments, my stomach churns from the often 2-hour drive, inhaling just-removed soccer cleats. And the balls! There are balls everywhere, no pun intended. Soccer balls, footballs, riffle balls, golf balls. Normally they are being aimed at my legs in an attempt to kick it through them. I want to pick these f’ing balls up and throw them in their face.
Now it’s no secret, I did get my way in our bedroom, painting it pink. Perhaps a bit manipulative on my part but I told my husband the following:
“If we paint it pink, I’ll want to have sex more.”
But then we had kids and suddenly, there’s nothing sexier than sleep.
We got the shed years ago on a massive sale….and have done nothing with it. I wrote a post about learning how to build stuff and here’s the shed and everything wrong with it:
That’s when I had the idea of making it a she-shed. When I asked my husband if he cared if I did, he said he didn’t care. In reality, this is what he was saying to me, “I’ll say sure because I know you’ll never do it.” So I wonder how much he will flip out when he comes home to find the most girly, feminine shed he’s ever seen in his life. Below are some of my favorites I’ve found on Pinterest. Which one do you like? Have you ever thought of having a she-shed? Or even a he-shed?
This one’s my favorite….
And you know what? Maybe this would satisfy my tiny house obsession. Perhaps once I got in and I was like, this is too freakin’ tiny, my obsession would go away. What do you guys think? Is a she-shed a good idea? And if you want to follow my She-Shed board, feel free!
I hear ya sister! I think I need one too!
Of course you do, you have kids! In fact, upon leaving the hospital with your first born, the hospital should just gift you a she-shed. Like, as your driving home, one is being set up in your backyard!
I would make mine set up like a library with a full service bar. Yes, go for it!!
Here is what I’m trying to figure out: electric. I need electric in the shed for lights, power up my laptop and a fridge to hold said beverages. I basically want a place I can write and a place to have my friends over in.
Hire an electrician to run power to the shed. Then it will be your own, personal writing space
I like details from each one!! The over the top girly of the first, the books from the second, the vines from the last one. All very cute!!
Thank you! I thought about saving up for a second shed so I could start from scratch but I think that would be way too expensive. This project probably won’t happen till next summer but when it does, I’ll probably try to find some mini shed for the small amount of crap, currently in the shed. I just need to pay someone to remodel it so I don’t have to deal with running into snakes or spiders.
I love this plan! You have a whole year to design and save up for it and then it’s actually going to happen hehe
I love the idea of a she-shed. That first one is so pretty too. I’d love a space like that to read and write and just chill out. It would be nice in the winter with some candles and blankets and twinkly
Ohhh….that would be lovely!!
