She Shed Upgrades

There is a special place in your home where you go to retreat and unwind. For some it is the study, for others  it’s a pool, patio/deck area. Some love entertaining in the backyard cooking on the BBQ. Traditionally for men, the garage or tool shed which they call man cave is their favorite spot to hide out. But the shed isn’t just for men anymore. Right now, a hot trend is for women to create a so-called She Shed from an ordinary tool shed.

Mantles – Make A Faux Fireplace

Faux Fireplace, She ShedA faux fireplace could become the focal point of your She Shed. Get a fireplace mantel  front, there are plenty out there. A reclaimed mantel from an architectural salvage warehouse is probably the best way to go. Strip off the old paint. Use a mask just in case the old paint contains lead. Repaint the mantel so it matches the decor of your home. You will also need to build a base frame to which you will attach the mantel. The base frame can be made out of 2 X 4’s, but it must be strong enough to hold the weight of your mantel. Once you attached the mantel and base frame to your wall, it is time to decorate.
