She Shed Ideas: How To Make Your Own She Shed

April 29, 2020

Whether you’ve seen the State Farm commercial or you’re hearing about it here first, she sheds are here to stay! These backyard getaways are the perfect version of a Woman’s “Man Cave”.

What is a she shed?

A she shed is what most people would consider a female "man cave." It is a specific area in a house or backyard that can be uniquely decorated and transformed into a space for activities, relaxation, and more. 

How To Start

Give your old shed a fresh coat of paint.

Adding a fresh layer of paint to an existing backyard shed is a quick way to make it more aesthetically pleasing and unique to you.
