Are you ready to see the Teen She Shed Cottage? Part 6

When you get down to the end of a project, it seems to come together all at once. It is finished, and now she will continue to personalize over the years.
In case you have not followed along, we converted a four year old shed that we built from a kit from HD into a SheShed cottage for our teen. It is 8 x12. It required that my spouse reframe one entire wall and frame the windows and doors. The large window and door were stock at HD, and the small window was special order due to the size and my daughter's vision to frame it with shutters and a window box, but despite so, it was inexpensive. Both windows have screens. The exterior light is from Home Depot, and it is the same one that it is on the front of the house. She coordinated the metal finishes on the She Shed cottage.

For this conversion, my daughter made all the choices, helped with the budget, calculations, and various projects. She also decorated the space in her style. Also, since we have a small home by today's standards, and it is very hot here, we installed insulation, electricity, and a tile floor. (Tile floors always stay cool.)



This is what we started with. My spouse removed the entire front and reframed it to install a window and a door. He also framed a window on the left. He then resided.







I have to say that she carefully considered function and how the She Shed cottage would look with the rest of the house. She went white on the outside for two reasons. White will keep it the coolest temperature in hot weather, and it matches the exterior porch. She then selected the happy exterior trim color to give a hint of what's inside. It's her favorite color in its many variations.


Exterior Porch







The colorful talavera sun on the palm tree once hung over her playhouse. Did you see the little bird house that looks like her cottage? It was only six dollars, and it's really nice. For a touch of whimsy, its door was painted to match her cottage shed. It's filled with birdseed in hopes that birds will pass by her windows. She loves birds. She use to have three as pets, but they died. When she had a playhouse, she had a garland of brightly patterned cloth birds with little jingle bells. As the months passed, the garland grew shorter and shorter; one by one a bird went missing. Until one day, a pack rat was seen stealing a stuffed bird for his den beneath the ground based air conditioner of the casita.
Let's step inside.














My spouse built the book shelf that she needed to go across the entire back wall, and the shelf has enough depth, so that she can stack books sideways to the ceiling if she desires. The shelf is strong.









Back in the autumn, she found the chandelier at an amazing price. She has good intuition. She loved this one, because it has branches, and she thought it would be gorgeous with the rustic wood ceiling that she had in mind. It has three lights and each bulb puts out 60 watts, and it provides a lot of light, because we put bulbs in with high lumens.


























It's really beautiful, and the photos don't do it justice.














You may recognize the daybed. Way back when, my daughter persuaded me to select this daybed for our sleeping porch, but now, she wanted it here, but spray painted silver. No worries, the porch gets the bed she had before she had a double in her room. The scale of this daybed is better for this space than her previous bed.
























On the right side she placed her antique folding rocking chair and an Ikea cabinet to display some of her rock collection, bits of nature, and her metal moon phase garland. You can see that the trim color was inspired by her space heater.
























She is always finding vintage items at an animal rescue shop, and this was maybe two dollars.










This is an antique folding rocker. I think they were used for sewing.











We had all the furniture except for this display cabinet and a cart.










Per her idea, my spouse also built a  display shelf for over the star window. Most of her items are from second hand stores, like the squirrel, and the antique copy of Alice in Wonderland, but sometimes Anthropologie or Target.























On the left side of the room she has her desk that we moved from behind the couch in the living room. She paired it with one of the stools from the kitchen, and it fits perfectly under the desk when not in use. The bed has vintage Battenburg lace shams that were only twenty dollars for all, the center pillow was handmade by someone local,  the colorful embroidered pillow and throw rug is from World Market, and the mint throw is from here, but made in Italy.





















To the left of the desk, and all by herself, she put together this Ikea cart for her art supplies. This is the best 29 dollars ever spent. She also keeps bowls of food and water on a tray for Silver the cat that loves to visit.










She buys lamps when she wins piano events, or when she doesn't. She says that some prefer to display trophies, but she prefers lamps. This one is a beauty from a beautiful shop that sells
French style. She had been eyeing it for months, and bought it after Christmas with her funds when there was a storewide sale.












That's her Italian tea pot. She planned to take it home as a souvenir a couple of years ago, but at that time it was not electrically compatible with the U.S., but now it is, so it was a Christmas present.  She keeps her tea supplies in a wicker basket under the daybed. The daybed has enough space for her supplies with underneath storage. We installed a smoke alarm too.






















She collects vintage items and loves art history. This image is of The Swing by John Honore Froganard. Also, when we went to the art museums in Paris she bought prints of some of her favorites, but keeps them in a box. As in her room, she changes the displays, because she is a lover of little things.











She found this vintage print, and it reminds her of our hike around Walden Pond, and since she is a also a writer, she chose it for inspiration. When she was seven, I took her to see Lexington and Concord, but specifically to see the homes of the transcendentalists and Louisa May Alcott's in Concord, because a couple of her favorite books were The Fledgling by Jane Langton and Little Women. When she was older, she liked Thoreau; all have to do with Walden.










In closing, here are some everyday images.















































The tile floors look nice with the ceiling.












So there you have it: a teen's She Shed Cottage for writing, painting, reading, creating, and dreaming. It was a great project for my daughter, and she learned a lot in the process: from the idea, to planning, to completion. That little rooster is my daughter's too. She purchased it after an event. Well it's Madeline's the Toy Poodle's arch rival, and she pounces at him as if it is alive.



Siding inside and out and trim is from HD.
The doors, windows, shutters, outside light, and door handle are from HD.
The wood for the shelves, the brackets, and the metal (painted) bracket are from HD.
The paint is SW.
The chandelier is "Claire" from Ballard Designs.
Window pails, hooks, and rod are from Ikea.

    1. Thank you, Lin. Well we had been planning it from when we returned, but then it went on the back burner. We started after Halloween when it became cool enough to work outside, but then we had to wait to do somethings until the electrician could come in November. We planned to finish by Christmas, but did not make it, so then we aimed for January 6th, but it passed. So we kept working; it's strange how all the little projects come together at once. But overall, I think it was fast, because of how much carpentry went into the project. Have a wonderful week. xoxo Su

  12. What a dreamy studio shed. I love every detail. Your daughter has an eye for beauty. Her color palette is so restful and pleasant. She could actually live in this space. But it makes for a magical retreat.

    PS I have the same daybed in our garden...it is weathered black. The silver is so lovely. I have often thought of doing a whitewash with the weathered black still showing in areas. Someday, when we can bring in back indoors again.

      That sounds lovely in white. It surprised me that the daybed painted well even with spray paint, and still sanded to show some black beneath for wear. xoox Su

  13. It turned out just lovely. I love the vintage touches. It is nice to see someone her age with an appreciation for old things and glad to see some old things getting some love. My younger daughter loves vintage tables and decor and midcentury modern furniture and considers herself a 'curator' of the things that she loves. How old is your daughter? You would never guess that the room was put together by a teenager.

    1. Thank you, Lorri. She has watched us fix this place up over the last few years, so that probably had some influence, but she has always been interested in old things. She also likes to put them with modern items like she did here. She just turned 15. She doesn't like band posters or the popular teen colors. She will walk into a store and walk out if the colors bother her. She plays classical piano and did classical ballet up until this year. She is elegant. xoxo Su

  19. What a lovely, grown-up "playhouse". Her tastes are elegant indeed. I live on the other side of town from you near Lake Pleasant, so I know of the heat you speak about. All she needs now is one of those wall air conditioners! BTW, I love everything about your home. I can hardly believe the beauty you have turned one of our city's older, block homes into; it's fantastic! I hope you have inspired your neighbors to take pride in their homes and fix them up too. An HOA shouldn't be necessary to live in a pretty neighborhood!

Last year, my spouse saw a standing non swamp, that does not sit in a window, but you put this vent that look's like a dryer's out the window. I agree about your opinion on the HOA. And yes, several have fixed their homes now. I hope even more will. I've had more fun with this old house than I have had with any new one in the past. I just love the quirkiness and fun spaces. xoxo Su

  21. Happy Monday Su,
    All the whimsy and fanciful enchanting touches and accents made me swoon. Your daughter made a very charming and artfully throughout retreat. I also see its Siver approved >^..^< how at home he looks but perhaps he slept on the day bed in your sleeping porch. Chandelier is pretty but I can't stop drolling over the crowned squirrel. Relaxing and peaceful color choices and I bet you even if she plans to sleep in the bungalow with the serenity of her "she shed" she will fall asleep in there. From ceiling planks to book shelf down to the stunning tile floor that really looks like wood she excels with her design choices. I noticed her SMEG toaster and tea pot. I have a SMEG cream toaster and have been thinking about buying the pot. Very cool and pretty reveal.
    xoxo,

    1. Thank you, Vera, the tea pot works really well, and she is really happy with it. She thinks it heats quicker than the ceramic one that I have on the porch. She is really happy with all her choices. Silver loves her space He hung around all the time while we worked, taking advantage of each moment to lounge on a cloth or box. He is there as soon as she gets to the door now. He was a cat that was born outside and given to her by her music teacher, but he likes to sow his oats even though he is fixed. But with this new space he is hanging around now, which is good, because my daughter adores him. (She has two indoor cats: Anya and JackJack.) That squirrel is adorable. She found him in a second hand shop. Can't believe what people tire of sometimes. Have a wonderful week. xoxo Su

  52. Can I move in? Honestly, your daughter's little cottage is just dreamy! I love everything from the wood ceilings to the tile floor and everything in between. I especially love the green teapot and space heater!!

  57. This is just amazing! I am SO ready to move in. LOL I love everything about it, right down to the Smeg toaster and coffee/tea pot and the aqua colored space heater. It looks like there's an electrical cord, so it must be electric? What a wonderful, cozy, and cheerful space for your daughter!

    1. Thank you, Cristina. There is paint all over the floor, and I love it. It is a great space to create and make a mess. Especially a good idea for a kid who is always using her hands. xoxo Su
