The last I shared of the She Shed was this cute vignette. The truth is, that just above where the camera cuts off was bare studs- no shiplap. I thought adding that in and doing the finishing touches would be fast. Turns out that I was crazy wrong!Here’s what happened- we thought adding French doors in one wall would add more sunlight. Since most of the point of this room is to grow plants, that sounded great. We picked up some doors from Habitat for Humanity for $100. And then we tore down the wall-My husband reframed this wall, added in new footers, and then installed the French doors. Side note, I get questions all the time on how my husband learned to do construction. He took a construction class in high school and the rest is self taught/YouTube videos. He has handy friends who help us sometimes that he learns new things from. And then he builds stuff for me!

Essentially, we are rebuilding this whole side of the shed and so, yeah, it’s taking longer than a week. It’ll be so worth it though! Here’s a peek inside during it’s current construction state.
Next up- shiplapping the rest of the ceiling and then a day of caulking, painting, and putting up the chandelier.
The shiplap everywhere is looking stunning! I can’t wait to paint it all pink. Side note, my husband thinks I should leave the ceiling white. What do you vote? I have a strong vision of all things pink in here, but I am definitely open to other opinions.
I’m planning on eventually adding a door in right there. But for now, I’m focused on finishing the shiplap and putting up the chandelier. Can you see the vision of how great this space will be?! I’m so, so excited!Next up, let’s talk about this cute bistro set that’ll live in the she shed (under the new chandelier!). It’s pretty much my dream table and chairs! They are from Paynes Gray and are on the expensive end of things. I keep getting requests for the same look at other price points, so I thought I’d see what I could find!
This is a Parisian bistro look made of rattan or wicker with a variation in the rattan. I LOVE the casual French look! Here’s some other options-
French bistro set round up
1 Bistro Set $249 / 2 Folding French Cafe Set $135 / 3 Blue Wicker Patio Set $269 / 4 Coral Coast Bistro Set $301 / 5 Hooper Table and Chairs $445 / 6 Sidford Rattan Table and Chairs $395 / 7 Black Bilson Table and Chairs $340 / 8 Avery Wicker Chairs and Table $599 / 9 Woven Bistro Table and Chairs $1200
1. is probably my favorite option- $250 is such a steal for this look! Number 9 is expensive, but turns that it is SUPER hard to find a bistro table and matching chairs. There’s lots of chair options, but not many tables. I also love 5 and 6. Which one is your favorite?
Stay tuned for the painted shiplap this week! And seeing my bistro table back in the she shed!
