A she shed.
Oh, how I have wanted a she shed.
You know, the kind with the French country theme and, of course, a small chandelier.
Our yard just isn’t big enough for one, so I got to thinking, if I don’t have enough room for a she shed, why not create a she room?
So that is what I did!

The Empty Room
We are at a stage in our lives where we have raised our sons. Our oldest son is married, our middle son is engaged and our “baby” is graduating from college this December. That being said, we have some extra space in our home.
One bright blue bedroom was just waiting for a transformation.
The perfect availability for a she room! You can see my design board below.
Make Her Pink!
I wanted something feminine, which included a pretty desk where I could work on my blogging. A comfy chair was also a requirement so I could curl up and read a good book. Eventually I would like to have a fancy little crib for when my granddaughter gets older.
A room that included removing all the blue and changing it to all things pink.
Do you remember that pretty soft pink dresser I painted a few months back? Well, that was the inspiration for my room.
First thing’s first. I picked a paint color. The paint I used was Sherwin Williams White Truffle. Don’t be confused by the name…there is nothing white about it! The color is between a dusty pink and a pale lavender, depending on which way the light hits it.
I love it!
Once the painting was finished, Mr. Mitten installed some new grey carpet. Back in the day, he owned his own carpet business, so replacing carpet is super convenient.
Bring on the Decor!
All the molding in my home is off white. In a world where most home decor is centered around the white farmhouse, finding a desk that wasn’t white was a bit of a challenge. I finally found this Thomaston desk from Wayfair. It has two drawers, plenty of desk space to spread out, and the price was just right.
That was the best part!
A comfortable desk chair was next on my list, but I didn’t want your typical desk chair. I wanted one with fabric and no wheels.
While window shopping at Marshall’s (BTW…does anyone EVER window shop at Marshall’s? I think not!) I found the perfect chair… The perfect size and color.
The last big item I purchased was my chaise lounge. I was going to get a chair and ottoman but found a chaise that fit just right in the space I had left.
Who doesn’t want a comfy space to sit and read, or watch TV or take a nap!?
Remember to add all the things that bring you joy when creating a space for yourself. If you read my blog from earlier this week, For the Love of Quilts, you will remember I added one of my grandmother’s quilts to a wall in my she room, even though it isn’t a perfect match, it brings me joy…and that, my friends, is all that matters!
I finished the space off by adding some fuzzy pillows, wall decor, a beautiful ceiling fan, a lamp and some special artwork.
All the Love
Speaking of artwork, I will leave you with this little story…
When our sons were growing up, I always kept a picture, decal, or a wooden sculpture with the word “LOVE” in our home. If one of the boys would come to me and say, “I’m afraid”, I would tell them there was nothing to be afraid of because there was only “LOVE” in our house. So, I thought it only fitting that my she room have some “LOVE” on one of the walls.
I hope you enjoyed my she room transformation. I hope it inspires you to create a space for yourself. One that’s filled with lots of dreams, lots of creativity and most of all, lots of LOVE.
