Review by Publisher's Weekly Review

Kotite (She Sheds) constructs a charming primer for women intent on creating their own spaces. "Get ready to roll up your sleeves, because this book offers dozens of projects," she warns in her introduction, and she delivers with shed-decorating ideas that include creating curtains from vintage dish towels, laying down mosaic stepping stones made from broken china, and installing trendy barn doors. Even as she's providing direction, Kotite emphasizes that each project can be tweaked or personalized to meet the creator's preferences. Paint palettes, architecture musings, styling tips, and color theories share space with fun ideas for entertaining, such as holding a paint party to get decorating help. Want a customized built-in sewing table or a drop-down bar in one's "she shed"? Kotite's got that covered. Those with a sense of whimsy will delight in the instructions for the transformation of a vintage hard-sided suitcase into a mod ottoman. Though most of Kotite's ideas are intended for freestanding sheds, many can easily be adapted for basements, spare rooms, and attics. Part practical decorating handbook and part empowerment guide for women, this book on mini-scaled spaces is full-scale fun. (Oct.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
