1 Of 20 Metallic CountertopsEntertaining expert Lulu Powers dreamed of a copper bar for years, but worried it would turn green. Treating the counter and shelving with lacquer staves off weathering, and provides a glam places for outdoor cocktail parties. David Tsay 2 Of 20 Rooftop GrillingFive stories above Brooklyn, a tar-paper roof became a gourmet cooking spot with panoramic views of the New York skyline. A charcoal grill anchors the space, but the beverage station provides the real magic. A slide-away cutting board and insulated ice bin make mojitos a snap. Pernille LoofAdvertisement – Continue Reading Below 3 Of 20 Flower SinkInspired by a similar basin at the famous Greystone Mansion, an outdoor sink features an inset container for blooms. The vessel also functions as an ice bucket for wine — just pull the plug at the bottom when the party’s over. David Tsay 4 Of 20 Stained Oak In designer Bonnie Edelman’s Connecticut house, the pool kitchen’s stained oak ceiling pours warmth over cool stainless-steel cabinets. A drop-down metal gate protects appliances from rain. Francesco LagneseAdvertisement – Continue Reading Below 5 Of 20 Terracotta HuesThis outdoor kitchen in California takes its colors from the earth and the sky. A Viking warming drawer is conveniently closest to the Fogazzo 1050 pizza oven. “It’s all about entertaining,” architect Michael Layne says. “People are going to gather where cooking’s going on, so you need lots of counter space and plenty of seating.” David Duncan Livingston 6 Of 20 Repurposed ShuttersIn Malcolm James Kutner’s Key West house, the outdoor kitchen cabinets are made from old cypress shutters supplied by restorer Liz Devries. “With outdoor living in general, it’s about being friendly with nature and inviting it inside instead of trying to draw that heavy line in the sand that says, ‘This is the outside and this is the inside,'” he says. Christopher BakerAdvertisement – Continue Reading Below 7 Of 20 Blue CabinetryIn Dianne Bernhard’s Connecticut kitchen, cabinets with Nantucket-style doors and blue-toned Caesarstone on top pick up the colors of the water just beyond the deck. “We really do live out here during the summer,” Bernhard says. The ceiling is painted Benjamin Moore’s Blue Springs. Francesco Lagnese 8 Of 20 Salvaged MaterialsDesigner Sandy Koepke used salvaged material and earthy colors to give this California kitchen some age and maturity. All of the appliances and cabinetry are from Kalamazoo Outdoor Gourmet. Reed DavisAdvertisement – Continue Reading Below 9 Of 20 Strategic Layout The U-shaped layout of a Nantucket kitchen is zoned from hot to cold, moving from the grill on the left to two refrigerator drawers and an ice maker on the right. “Usually an outdoor kitchen is more of an adjunct, but this is complete,” designer Kris Horiuchi says. “The client wanted the whole shebang — grill, cooktops, refrigerator, sink, pizza oven.” Trevor Tondro 10 Of 20 Stone Varietals There’s an organic feeling to the outdoor kitchen designed by Mick De Giulio, thanks to a variety of colors, shapes and textures of stone — from Medina Slab pavers to the island built of Weston Stone, all from Belgard Hardscapes.

If you’re looking for low maintenance and quick-and-easy assembly, a resin shed may be your answer. Consider models made of plastic, vinyl or high-density polyethylene. A resin shed requires no protective weather coating or treatment, and it’s usually less expensive than wood. For security and durability, try a metal shed, which can resist termites, mold, mildew and even fire. Unlike their wood and resin counterparts, many metal sheds feature reinforced hinges, which can help deter thieves. Metal is also typically the least expensive shed material option. To extend the life of your metal shed, choose the right location, at least partially shaded and away from harsh elements. Keep it clean inside and out and apply a weatherproof coating if necessary. When you decide which shed is right for you, we’ll make the buying process as simple as possible, with delivery and installation at your convenience.

Katrina Sullivan of Chic Little House wanted her own small retreat where she could work, think or just relax. Building and decorating her own she shed in her backyard was the perfect solution. A She Shed Studio For the last few weeks, we’ve been hard at work transforming my new TUFF Shed from The Home Depot into a creative studio hub, where I can tackle a range of projects. I wanted a place for my DIY projects, sewing, design, crafting, photography and blogging. Since my 1950s rancher is on the petite size, I loved the idea of having a dedicated work space just for myself, one of the many reasons why I love the she shed concept. The design plan was to transform the TUFF SHED TR700 into a mini-cottage version of our beloved rancher. We got The Home Depot Home Services team to come and install the structure – thought I’d save myself the headache of such an undertaking. We chose to paint the cottage the same color as our house– Pier by Behr, with Ultra White trim also by Behr. I’m a huge fan of using tone-on-tone colors and decided to paint the front door of the cottage Cracked Pepper by Behr, a pretty deep glossy grey. I love vines growing up the sides of cottages; it makes them look so quaint. I bought a simple ladder trellis from The Home Depot and turned it into a corner trellis. I cut it in half and attached it to the side of the cottage using a nail gun. The potted honeysuckle can now climb up the sides of the cottage as it grows. In the front of the cottage, we planted several drought-tolerant plants. One of the sage bushes I planted attracts hummingbirds, and since it’s been planted, I’ve seen at least two humming around it! The majority of our yard looks a little sad due to water restrictions due the California drought. I can’t wait to see our grass green back up in the cooler weather. To transform the shed into a working studio, we insulated the walls and ceiling and then added drywall. We also ran electricity to the shed and added a mini split air conditioning and heating unit. I’ll share a complete breakdown of the electrical process and drywall along with tips on my blog Chic Little House. When you walk into the cottage studio you’re greeted with a trio of Parson Bookcases. The bookcases are styled to be both pretty and practical. They hold my sewing machine, fabric, craft supplies, books and artwork. The bookcases are the perfect fit in the she shed, and exactly the look I wanted– clean, modern and timeless. One of my favorite additions on the bookcase is this little Ranchero Crosley radio, I love that I can listen to the radio while creating. The walls in the she shed are painted Sutton Place Grey by Glidden; it’s a very pretty soft grey color. Above the bookcases is the mini AC/heating unit we also had installed by The Home Depot’s Installation Services. The air conditioning was a crucial addition to the cottage since during the summer months in Northern California, temperatures hover in the 100s. I adore the look of built-in window seats, so I added one in the corner of my cottage. The top lifts up to reveal hidden storage! As much as I love open storage, hidden storage is a must. This cozy corner window seat is the perfect spot to enjoy a cup of coffee, curl up and blog in this spot. I’m also happy it provides extra seating when I have guests over. To add a layer of texture and warmth into the she shed, I chose the Driftwood Belved Wood Reed Roman shades. To make the windows appear larger, I mounted the Roman shades on the outside of the window and hung them almost to the ceiling on the side wall windows. On the other side of the studio is my desk. I chose the Parsons style desk from Home Decorators Collection. I’ve seriously wanted this desk for years, and I’m thrilled it’s the perfect fit for the she shed. I love incorporating vintage furniture into ‘new spaces’ and found the cutest vintage Thonet style chair for my studio on a Facebook sale. But the chair needed a little love before I could use it. Above, you see my chair before, lots of chippy white paint, so not me. Using my Ryobi random orbit sander, I gently sanded away all the loose paint and then wiped the chair clean. Since the chair has seen better days, I opted to spray paint the chair first with primer. I used Kilz spray paint stain blocking primer. I lightly spray painted the chair with primer and then waited one hour. After the hour was up, I lightly sanded the chair using a sanding pad. Next, I spray painted the chair using gloss grey spray paint. It took three coats to get a nice even finish. It’s so rewarding to transform an old piece and give it new life. I’m so happy with how the chair turned out. Next to my desk are the beginnings of a gallery wall with artwork sourced from Etsy. The cottage studio is a dream come true, so when I spotted a unicorn hook at Home Decorators Collection, I knew it would be THE perfect addition to hold my keys. Whenever I see the unicorn, it puts a huge smile on my face. I hope you all enjoyed the tour of my studio she shed. Please stop by my blog for the behind-the-scenes details on the electrical and drywall process, along with the complete source guide for all the items inside. This project was an absolute dream. I’m so thrilled to have partnered with The Home Depot in transforming a shed into my very own she shed. Thank you Home Depot for helping turn my ideas into reality. I’m so thrilled with how everything came together. I’m thrilled to have a dedicated spot for blogging and all things Design & DIY. Katrina writes more about her she shed project on her blog, including building the shed and her decor inspiration. Take a look. Katrina Sullivan is a Northern California native, wife to Hasani and mother of two delightful boys. Katrina shares her DIY projects and ongoing home renovations on her blog Chic Little House.
