The Secret to Creating Your Own 'She Shed'

Wouldn't it be nice to have a getaway that didn't involve any travel? It's possible, thanks to customizable 'she sheds.' Despite the somewhat tongue-twisting name, these pint-sized backyard escapes have proven to be a big trend. It's easy to see why: They're simple to build and are downright adorable. 

The only challenge is seeing past the utilitarian nature of a shed. With a little lighting, some extra storage, maybe some cute furniture, you've turned that potting shed into a much nicer alternative to hiding in the bathroom next time you need some "me time." 

To get you inspired, Lowe's has just revealed four 'she sheds', each geared towards a specific interest. The makeovers started with the Heartland Metropolitan Lean-To wood storage shed, which has an almost mid-century vibe. Skylights, electrical wiring, and lanterns gave the sheds a welcoming feel. The difference comes down to accessorizing and furnishings that give each space a different vibe.

1. The Reading Nook

Tufted chairs, bookshelves, and a neutral rug create a respite made for relaxing with a good read.

2. The Yoga Studio

A sleek bench, large-scale artwork, and a natural fiber mat offer a calming space to achieve maximum focus.

3. The Office

The shed's small proportions are just right for fitting in a desk/command center.

4. The Studio

Having a designated spot to find your muse makes all the difference.
