Daily She Shed ~ Interior Finishes


The weather here has not been very conducive for gardening, so I have
been focusing my She Shed thoughts on the interior.  As in all standard sheds,
the walls are plywood, and really need to be covered in a finish of some 
kind.  I am leaning towards bead board because of it's ease of installation,
and it's cottage charm.  I may consider shiplap too, but not sure.  I am
not a big trend follower as you know.

It's hard to tell from this photo because of the stacked pictures in the
way, but that black square between the two chairs is an electric stove. 
Looks like an old fashioned wood stove.  Yesterday it occurred to me
how much I would love stone in those two areas marked above.  Faux
stone of course, which appears to be readily available in all types of
styles.  The faux stone would run ceiling to floor.  I think it would 
really draw the eye to this end of the room.  Everything else will be
painted white, walls, beams, and ceiling, so the stone would really
pop!  We also will be installing longer arch top windows on 
either side of the stone.

The other reason I like stone so much is that many of my favorite
movies from the 1940's utilized it in their interpretation of cottage
and farmhouse interiors.  This is true of Christmas in Connecticut,
Bringing Up Baby, Dear Ruth, Skylark and more.   All of these homes
use lots of interior stone with detailed trim work and beams, all in
white.  This has always been an ideal look to me.  One that
exudes country charm.

I am excited about all of this coming interior work and plan to
get some samples this weekend.

A weather update.  We have been fortunate to have escaped the
nasty weather that was headed for our area.  It just stayed above
us and headed east.  We only had light rain, while from Fredericksburg
to Austin, and on to Houston, there were high winds, and large hail,
and many lightning strikes along with the heavy rain.  Poor
Sugar Land, a large town west of Houston has flooded once again.
It was flooded after Hurricane Harvey and many,  including our
friends, had to evacuate their homes.  David checked in with our 
friends last night and they were getting very nervous.  Please 
keep everyone in these paths in your prayers.

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

  2. I loved your movie references...but the one with Barbara Stanwyck trying to pretend to be a country girl, can't think of the name of it...where they used the same house they used for most of those movies. White trim, see thru curtains and lots of wood furniture and always a stone hearth. Have fun---I'm sure you will figure it out!

  4. Oh, I love your ideas for that back wall. I also am a huge fan of the movies of the 40's and love the look. When your She shed is finished you will be wanting to spend all of your time out there. Love how you are taking a nondescript small building and making into a dream space. You keep me inspired.
