When Jelena wanted to create a place to work from home, she turned to the garden shed. Using colorful and fun coworking spaces as her inspiration, she transformed this storage space into an energizing place to get stuff done.
Looking for a solution to solve that problem I resorted to the Internet and came across a few solutions that I could adapt to my own situation.
Seeing some office spaces featured online got me thinking and the idea was born to turn my garden shed into an inspirational outdoor work and hangout space for myself. It can sadly only be usable in the Summer, but it will offer the convenience of separating work from family life. The shed is powered and has an amazing wi-fi connection so its potential wouldn't have been used to its fullest had this transformation not taken place. Once the work is done, the space can be easily transformed into an evening hang-out space. In retrospect, the entire process was labour intensive, yet so rewarding that I would do it a million times over.
Total money spent was as follows:
- Two gallons of paint: I already had the paint but if purchased new— $90
- Desk: $20
- Carpet: $80
- Sari Fabric: $2
- Shutters: $20
- Total: $212
- All doors and window frames are street finds and decorative items I shopped from my house.

Thank you Jelena!
