These Dreamy "She Sheds" Will Make You Swoon

We've all heard of the "she shed"—the more feminine counterpart of the man cave—that is essentially an estrogen enclave a mere 15 feet away from your home. A much-needed respite from the many stressors embedded within a busy family home, she sheds are essentially a working mom's best friend. With the help of Brit+Co's Grace Lee, we've compiled three dreamy she sheds to inspire your next DIY project:

The Suburban Sanctuary

This picturesque she shed is the perfect backyard addition to any suburban home. Constructed by Ella Claire's Kristen with the help of the Home Depot, this light and airy escape was built from the ground up and polished off with gorgeous landscaping, billowy curtains, and vintage-inspired décor. See Kristen's step-by-step tutorial here.

The Garden Retreat

This greenhouse-inspired she shed is a nature lover's dream. Built using reclaimed windows and doors, this charming backyard haven is cost-effective, shabby-chic, and the perfect scene for a mid-afternoon reading break. See the full DIY tutorial over at Better Homes and Gardens.

The Beachy Getaway

If you're lucky enough to live near a beach, transform your coastline property with a mini–beach house version of a she shed. This one, featured on Dutch interior design blog Vtwonen, includes floor-to-ceiling windows, an all-white paint job, and a string-up hammock. It's basically what your she shed dreams are made of.
