Everyone has heard of she sheds which I think is a great idea.
With my condo the only spot I have is a rather weathered deck off the dining room. It was very badly weathered with boards mildewed and starting to rot. .
Came home from cruise and decided to get busy refurbishing deck.
Unfortunately the condo only allows Thompsons water seal . Did find a cedar colour Thompson's that matched my brick .. Got busy.
My finished product with gazebo installed and new lounge furniture,Added rug and Chinese lanterns that light up in the evening, Candles for a bit of glow. Pots of fragrant plants. Keep the screens drawn so gives a feeling of enclosure and privacy.
Coffee in the morning , lunches and suppers , reading with a glass of wine ,
Might not be a she shed but this she deck makes me very happy.
