She Shed/Workshop Reveal | One Room Challenge Week 8

This post is sponsored by HomeRight. As always, any opinions reflected in this post are my own.

My she shed is officially done! When we were first looking at this house, the shed was a big selling point for me. I have never had a dedicated workshop before but with my never ending project list, the idea of having a dedicated space for all of my tools and supplies was very appealing. Obviously we ended up purchasing this house, but the shed quickly turned into a chaotic dumping ground for tools and unorganized project supplies. It definitely needed some TLC and now, after 8 weeks of hard work, I’ve turned this shed into my dream workshop!

There isn’t a single surface in this shed that remained untouched and the star of the show was definitely my HomeRight Super Finish Max paint sprayer! I think I used it every single week of this challenge and it saved me so much time because I never had to cut in with a brush and come back with a roller. I honestly cannot imagine trying to paint this beast without it!

I decided to leave the walls and ceiling open, but I did paint them white to brighten them up. And of course I used my Super Finish Max paint sprayer. I’m always shocked at how a fresh coat of paint truly can breath new life into a space. So much better than the raw wood, right?

With the walls and ceiling painted, it was time to focus on the floors. I wanted something fun but not too busy, so I settled on this pretty but simple geometric pattern. Check out how I painted them here!

I really need this space to be more than just beautiful, I need it to be super functional. So I added in some storage with a paint can shelf and pegboard for some of my more frequently used tools (both of which I painted with my paint sprayer, of course).

And on the topic of functionality, let’s talk about this workbench! I used three Alex drawer units from Ikea and hacked them to create this miter saw station that I am completely obsessed with. Full tutorial coming soon!

It’s hard to pick a favorite part of this project, but I cannot get over the exterior changes! The white is much more my style than the yellow was and the splash of color on the door gives it the perfect feminine touch. And for reference, each side of the shed took me 7 minutes per coat. That’s right, 7 minutes!! Thank you Super Finish Max sprayer.

Walls : White Dove | Door : Wedgewood Gray

After the room really started taking shape, I realized how much I love spending time in here. It feels like a space that really embodies this side of me – my crazy project loving self! And while I love my kids and my husband, I will say that having my own spot away from them is really relaxing. So obviously I needed a corner in here where I can sit and enjoy it! I made this sign (once again, my paint sprayer came in handy) and grabbed a comfy chair to complete it. I think the sign still needs a little tweaking before it’s perfect, but it’s close!

I truthfully could not be more pleased with how this space turned out. It is the perfect balance between beauty and function and it’s going to be the perfect space to work on all my future projects in!

There are so many truly incredible spaces being revealed by amazing creators who also participated in the One Room Challenge, so be sure to go browse through those here!

With love,
