She shed craft retreat

As you might know by now, I like to craft 😉 but I rarely get a chance to craft for meditation or relaxation because it’s all for work. It’s because I love you guys so much! There are some crafts that I know I’d love to do as I watch TV or just take a breather so I was pumped when Pier 1 wanted to collaborate on a She Shed. I knew exactly how I’d use one and where to use one. 

First off, what is a she shed? It’s essentially a backyard getaway where dreams come true. Or at least, that’s I envision it. It’s a greenhouse, tool shed, or structure created or turned into a space for escape. A place to relax, color, meditate, do yoga, play some games, watch TV, or whatever your heart desires. I knew I wanted a place to craft and that’s exactly what we did.

I also knew that I wanted the design choices to be neutrals (didn’t expect that one from me, huh?!) and clean so that my mind would feel relaxed. I envisioned layers and layers of whites upon white and textures upon textures, which is why the faux fur pillows were perfect.a crafting she shed by The House That Lars Built for Pier 1

I knew I wanted a beautiful escape and this treehouse was PERFECT! Right?! It’s so magical! The treehouse is only about 150 square feet so furniture would need to be compact and multifunctional. Take this desk, above, for example, It acts as a desk, bookshelf, and storage unit all in one. And it fit nicely in the corner. With a comfy seat, I envisioned setting up the sewing machine and finally getting back to sewing my own clothes. a crafting she shed by The House That Lars Built for Pier 1

Floor poufs were the inspiration for the space from the get go along with the adorable love seat. Don’t they make you wanna curl up and cozy out?! a crafting she shed by The House That Lars Built for Pier 1

Pier 1 is THE BEST for baskets and there was no shortage. Why?! Because they add beautiful texture AND they’re functional. The tall baskets are perfect for taller papers, gift wrap, and of course, crepe paper, which I cannot go without. This white one was perfect for the space. Here is another fun option in stock now!a crafting she shed by The House That Lars Built for Pier 1

Baskets baskets baskets! A basket for every purpose, including my twines. And I love their new gold desktop organization system, which I used for my coloring pencils (and our Coloring book!). The gold organizing desk system and magazine holders are modern and classy.  Try these and these for the same look!a crafting she shed by The House That Lars Built for Pier 1

We set out a few gold lanterns to welcome our guests in.  a crafting she shed by The House That Lars Built for Pier 1

I used some utensil caddies to serve as organizers for my markers and paintbrushes.a crafting she shed by The House That Lars Built for Pier 1a crafting she shed by The House That Lars Built for Pier 1

I’m always a fan of starburst anything and these petite burst round mirrors are adorable and class up the space.

We added on a neutral chair cushion and topped it with a cozy knit pillow.a crafting she shed by The House That Lars Built for Pier 1a crafting she shed by The House That Lars Built for Pier 1
