Get the Look- French Country She Shed

Last week I shared a peek at a little fairytale spot.

Greenhouse French cottage

One with a pea gravel floor, crisp white walls and that is filled with 
pretty things like a French daybed, blooms & chandelier.
And today- I am sharing more about each piece and how you can get the look.

So many questions about this project and how to find the pieces I used when designing and decorating this little spot- and so I wanted to share more about some of them.

Of course, some are vintage- and they are a little harder to replicate- but you can use them as an idea when looking for something similar.

Where to start?
 The Shed.
I found a darling little greenhouse/shed that talked to me with those pretty
little details like the dutch door, loads of windows and all wood construction.
And the best part- this was a kit. 
And it comes in several sizes so you can choose one that works for you.

You can find the kit for the shed/Greenhouse  here.

Up next- the daybed.
This daybed stole my heart from the moment I saw it.
And I was so excited to be able to bring it home. I knew just where it would go.
In that She Shed-and it was perfect.

The French Daybed was a Craigslist find- and is an antique but they have similar versions of daybeds
and twin beds that you could use for a similar look.
You can read more about finding this piece in this post.

Whiskey Barrels- Lowe's

Easy easy easy. 
They were Lowe's finds along with those white rose trees.
I am a huge fan of whiskey barrels tucked into garden designs.

And another Lowe's find. Basically, make sure you bring a truck and load up.

Remember that story about the laundry basket, Vegas Market and shipping?
These zinc buckets were included in that shipment. They are vintage and you can find them on places like eBay or in vintage shops and I have linked a similar one here Zinc Bucket

The Dining Area

The dining area is a mix of vintage and new. 
The table and two of the chairs are from an old iron patio set from years ago- and the white wicker are new additions to mix it up a bit.
And the string lights were Target finds.

I partnered with Angie's List to design and create this She Shed as inspiration.
But all designs, opinions and crazy love of all things French and inspired are my own.


  1. Question please? How does your pea gravel floor stay dry? Does it not draw up excessive moisture from the ground?

  2. Be still, my heart...this would be lovely...however, with a greenhouse, two tool sheds and two chicken coops and runs, plus raised beds, berries and grape vines, there is no room for a she shed for mama.

  3. So pretty. I never knew there were kits. It turned out so perfect. Thank you for sharing the beautiful photos.

  4. I love this shed!!! So very glamorous! . It's like a beautiful oasis in an enchanted forest. Snow White would definitely approve as a place to wait for her Prince Charming!

  5. This is definitely what I dream of having. What size did you happen to order? I didn't see the size dimensions referenced anywhere. You did a lovely job of making the inside and outside...sweet perfection. It's just magical!

  6. I could not find further information in your post re: the daybed? How did I miss it???

  7. This is absolutely beautiful! I love It.
