As you prepare to bid farewell to winter’s white beauty and chilly temperatures, signs of spring’s awaited arrival become apparent. The sun’s beams feel tantalizingly warmer on your skin while fresh and luscious green leaves begin to sprout. During this time, your garden cheerfully blooms with colourful pink, purple, yellow, and orange flowers while merrily chirping birds instead of an alarm clock wakes you up in the morning.
But all this joy of spring’s arrival is left worthless if you do not get some time to yourself. Even if you do get some time off your busy schedule, the same old scenery of your house is the last place you want to spend your quality time. Not because your house is not a great place to be, but because the deafening sound of a soccer match on the television, the children loitering around the living room, and a nosy dog that unexpectedly jumps onto your lap will render the time useless.
Surprisingly, your portable storage shed can save your day. With very minimal investment and a bit of creativity, you can turn your storage shed into a perfect springtime she-shed. While man caves have enjoyed the spotlight for quite a while, it is time for them to step aside and let the she-sheds take over the stage.
Hence, today’s blog will systematically guide you through the process of transforming your seemingly dull storage shed into an aesthetically inviting she-shed with a touch of spring.
So without further delay, let spring’s magic hypnotize you:
How To Transform Your Storage Shed Into A Perfect She-Shed
Till now, you might have come across numerous practical reasons that require you to buy a shed. However, today we shall take a slightly entertaining angle. Instead of emphasizing the advantages of portable sheds, today, we shall put forth a unique way our ladies can use their sheds to escape their daily grind.
1. Make A Budget
Apart from a lot of physical work and dedication, this transformation will also require an investment. While some people will only spend on painting the shed and using existing furniture, others like to go beyond the boundaries and even purchase antique artwork to hang in their perfect springtime spot.
Regardless of the case, our main concern is that you make a written plan about how much you are willing to spend and on what.
2. Repair Or Replace
The next step is to inspect your shed’s existing condition. How old is it? Is repairing the shed less feasible than a replacement? Do you need more space?
During this stage, ask yourself as many questions as you can and make an informed decision based on your needs and budget.
3. Tidy Up The Surrounding Area
Well, the whole enjoyment might turn sour if the surrounding site is not in great condition. Hence, your next goal should be to tidy up your garden (or wherever the shed is). Weed the garden and cut down any overgrowing tree branches. Give the surrounding area a perfect look.
4. Spruce Up The Shed
For months, or maybe even years, you have used the shed to either store garden tools or unwanted stuff. Now is the time to thoroughly clean and wash it. Ensure each spot of the shed is completely spotless.
5. Put Your Plans Down On Paper
Once the shed is ready to take the face you want to give it, you need to brainstorm and shortlist your ideas. Do you want your she-shed to represent a mini library or an outdoor kitchen where you can experiment with the ingredients?
Once you have decided on the right course of action, put it down on paper with everything else you will require to make the transformation a success.
6. Patch The Damaged Areas
Before you execute your plans, ensure that all the damaged areas have adequately been fixed. Unappealing holes or wide cracks may act as breeding spaces for burrowing animals and insects.
7. Add Some Vibrance And Incorporate Your Personality
The real fun begins now. Take a paintbrush and let your creativity reform the shed into your dreamland. Paint the exterior and the interior with the colours that soothe your eyes and soul. Light turquoise, sage green, soft yellow, blush pink, or classic white are just a few of the options.
Likewise, add some furniture with matching colours, such as a couch, fluffy cushions, and a comfy armchair. Depending on your plan, add relevant furniture. For example, if you want your she-shed to resemble a library, add soft coloured mini bookshelves and stack books on them.
8. Give It A Hint Of Spring
Since you are looking to have a good springtime, it would feel great to surround yourself with a bit of nature. Place potted plants and flowers in the interior and exterior as well.
