She Shed: The New Man Cave

What is a She Shed you might ask? A She Shed is the female version of a man cave; somewhere you can have all to yourself undisturbed. You can do whatever you want in there! You can turn it into a craft room, a library, a bar, or even an office! You could make it girly or very sleek and sophisticated. The shed is your oyster!

A Craft Room

A craft or hobby room is ideal for any artistic woman. This could be your ultimate creative hideaway. You can paint, scrapbook, DIY, do pottery, etc. The scene of your garden through the windows can provide so much inspiration! The best part is that you wouldn’t have to clean everything up every time you wanted to take a break, because it would be your own personal imaginative wonderland!

A Library

We all love to cuddle up with a book and a glass of wine in a quiet corner and just relax, but what if you had a whole room set aside for just this purpose? It would be like a very intense reading nook. You could keep all your books on multiple lined up bookshelves. Have your comfiest chair transported into the room on top of a soft rug with a cozy blanket thrown over the back. You have to include a stylish side table to keep your wine glass on, of course. Speaking of, go ahead and put a mini wine rack in there with some cute and classy glasses. It will add to the whole feminine sophistication.

A Bar

That actually leads us to our third suggestion, a bar! You can either DIY a bar or buy a built bar, add a few glasses (including margarita glasses, martini glasses, wine glasses, etc.), a whole cocktail kit with all bartending utensils, and then decorate however you want! Put in some barstools, a sofa, and play around with the lighting. This will be great whenever you want to have garden parties or just a girl’s night.

An Office

Last but not least, we have an office. We chose this last, because even though it’s not as “fun,” it is extremely convenient and functional. It’s the perfect getaway spot where you can clear your mind and buckle down on your workload. You can use it to read, work, study, or write, pretty much anything you want to use it for that quiet is a necessity.

So women, take charge and make yourself a she shed, a space that is all your own and no one is allowed to disturb you! It’s powerful and necessary for women to have a place all to themselves, not just men! The She Shed is the new Man Cave, because it’s just as important!

Porch & Patio Clean Up – The Right Way

The fresh warm air of spring is here! We’re going to start migrating to our porches and patios more often now, so let’s get them tidied up. We have constructed an easy 5-step plan to making your porch and patio looks brand new. We know you’re thinking, “Can’t I just use a pressure washer?” Pressure washers will actually cause severe damage to your outside surfaces over time, especially wood. To keep them looking clean and in great condition, follow our quick, little how-to.

Sweep

Start by sweeping the entire area. Anything that gets left from the broom will stick when it gets wet and will become a much bigger pain to deal with than just sweeping.

Hose It Down: Part I

Hose down the plants on and around the area, because by doing this, it will help whatever soap gets on the plants just slide off. If you have a garden, this is a very important step.

Stains

Try to tackle stains first. Ways to take care of stains depends on the different surfaces you’re dealing with. With the right product, it should be quick, fast, and easy no matter the surface.

Deck Brush

Again depending on the type of surface, select your cleaning solution and follow the directions to dilute it. Use a deck brush, or a stiff push broom, to really create some strength. Dip it in the bucket, get the surface wet, and use some serious elbow grease.

Hose It Down: Part II

Hose down the entire area. Make sure you get all the solution off, and let it dry. Your porch and patio are complete!
