I’ve worked in a lot of cool spaces before, and surprisingly this isn’t my first shed makeover…but…it is my FAVORITE shed makeover!
There’s lot’s of great products used in this transformation, and I’ve gathered them all for you in
my “Favorite Things“
slider at the top of this page.
If you follow me on Facebook, you already saw the tour I gave.
The shed is pretty basic…4 walls, a floor and a vaulted ceiling.
2 windows, a double door (off-set so I could fit more furniture),
and hidden double doors in the back in case you ever needed to store a tractor in here.
Let me give you a little tour…
Some of my tricks?
I went with all white paint on the walls so the space would be bright and airy.
A dramatic dark charcoal on the ceiling sets the cozy mood.
Not to mention how the dark ceiling makes the already fabulous chandelier just POP!
I found the chandelier & sconces at Denney Electric in Ambler, and if you mention this blog post, you’ll get 10% off your purchase there.
The room is 12′ x 20′ which just happens to be the perfect size if your shopping in the remnant department of your rug store.
Lot’s of times when I’m designing a space I think of how it will be used.
This room was meant to be a family hang-out room – for game nights and movie watching.
So, I needed 3 things – Seating, Media, and a place to store food/drinks.
The sectional in a dark chocolate color is perfect for tons of seating AND hiding dirt. It’s from IKEA and it’s fabulous.
It’s deep enough to really relax. My kids can’t wait to get this sofa into our own home.
We built and 8″ high platform to fit behind the sofa where this custom barn wood and plumbing pipe table comes in handy as a drinking/eating area.
I always use the largest coffee table that can fit in the space because I feel it’s an extension of the dining table. Since, there’s no dining table in this space, I knew I wanted to go big!
This table began it’s life with a little more contemporary feel and a different color. But, after a coat of black spray paint and a pine wood top, it’s a completely different style.
Here is the “before” of this table…
and the “after”….
You can never have enough seating, so these floor cushions provide the perfect spot for the little ones to relax and hang out the floor.
The floor cushions also match the drapes hanging in the back corners of the room.
I wanted to add fabric and a muted pattern to warm up the space.
I also added this cute little leather moose.
The dining chairs behind the sofa were a HomeGoods steal.
The rope wrapped bottle was a ZERO cost DIY that I featured in a previous post.
I layer the rugs with a sand colored berber covering the entire space and a synthetic tan cowhide under the coffee table.
The sconces were pretty hard to get a picture of, but they’re one of my favorite parts of the room.
Here’s what the sconces look like up close.
As for heat…
That mirror you see on the back wall is also a flat screen fireplace.
It has a heating element you can turn on or off if you just want to enjoy the flickering flames.
My friend Jenna made this amazing piece of artwork out of shipping pallets.
Isn’t it awesome?
So, what’s your favorite thing in the room?
I really can’t decide, but if I have to pick, I think it might be the chandelier.
Remember, links to practically everything in this room are in the “favorite things” bar at the top of the page.
