Nobody says that your she shed can’t be used as a shed, but of course a potting shed with a feminine touch has a totally different feel to it than a regular old potting shed! We love how Nancy has all of her garnering supplies displayed on shelves and the curtain under the sink adds a shabby chic feel.

Tara describes the “cottage” at the bottom of her garden as her office rather than a she-shed. We love that she has space for her writing desk as well as the bunk area for relaxing and enjoying the view through the roof window.
