An Adorable She Shed

"My Shed is like my little bolt hole in my own garden"

Pink wooden She ShedGardener Sarah from Herefordshire took delivery of her 10’ x 8’ Posh Potting Shed earlier in the year but when we caught up with her recently, we found that she had turned it into a beautiful “She Shed”. The shed was delivered in pressure treated timber for self-install, and Sarah has customised it to reflect her personality and create an ultimate pink She Shed. 

Initially, Sarah had wanted a potting shed for her kitchen garden, “When I got it I realised it wasPretty Garden Shed far too nice to be doing messy gardening jobs in, so I use it to as a relaxing space where I can admire all my hard work” she says, “I will use it for less messy gardening jobs such as flower arranging and keeping all my gardening books on hand so I can refer to them quickly without have to trek to the house.”

Internal of Posh Shed“I painted the outside myself”, says Sarah. “Inside I am currently using an opaque “Pale Peony” pink and I will tile the floor. I plan to put seating and a bench for my flower arranging in there along with space for my gardening books and vases. I’m also planning to give the shed its own little enclosed cottage garden and wildlife pond”.

Sarah has painted her shed a true pink using Farrow & Ball’s “Nancy’s Blushes” with paler “Middleton Pink” contrast trim to the windows, door, fascias and roof trim and loves that it provides a lovely focal point in what was a miserable looking space, she says, “It fills a space where the kitchen garden ends and the orchard area starts. No matter what the weather is like I can fling open the stable door and enjoy the view. It’s a very quiet spot and I love the colour. It’s very me”. 

Sarah used to work in aviation and moved to Herefordshire with her husband in the midst of the pandemic last October. Her husband still works in aviation, and they love spending time in the countryside air where Sarah is currently designing the garden. “We really appreciate it, but I felt a bit overwhelmed by it all at first.” She says, “My shed is like my little bolt hole in my own garden. I can sit and think about where I’m going to put in new borders and what to do next. It’s also a lovely place to listen to all the birds in the garden.”
