Take a peek inside some of these functional-to-glam outdoor spaces and start planning your own backyard getaway now.

The Gardening Shed

Pennsylvania shed-owner Judy Weiss revamped an existing shed with her husband at the DIY-frugal cost of just $500. The result is a wonderfully neat and organized way to store all of Judy's gardening tools.

This handmade cabinet area creates the perfect, organized space for all of the gardening tools.

These galvanized tubs with a cover create the perfect table that fits the theme of the space. The tubs store tools and other gardening essentials.

The Gardening Shed

Using an old water pump adds some flare to the space while still fitting the theme of gardening. If you already have one, it's a free way to decorate your space. A fresh coat of paint can bring it back to life.

The Metal Shed

With no building experience but a can-do attitude, artist Melanie Van Houten turned an existing metal shed in her Florida backyard into an art studio using scrap wood for the shed floor and walls. Her recommendation for building a she-shed in Florida: air conditioning.

The Metal Shed

These metal walls were painted to give them a slightly weathered look. Using white also creates a blank background to show off artwork and allow it to pop.

The Metal Shed

Think of your she shed as an extension of your home: just as you would landscape around your home, you should also add some landscaping to the outside of your shed.

The Metal Shed

Colorful rugs are a fun way to make your shed more homey and playful. Rugs are also an easy way to cover the cement floor instead of putting down carpet or tile.

This corner is perfect for relaxing, reflecting or working. All the pieces emphasize the personal style of this shed, making it cozy, but not overdone.

The Painting Studio

This is not your average homely metal shed used for storage. This shed with a panoramic view in Queensland, Australia, serves as an artist studio.

The Painting Studio

I would take up painting if it scored me a she shed as adorable as this one, owned by artist Tamara Armstrong.

The Painting Studio

Finding a style that fits your she shed is important. Tamara's simple style allows her to showcase all of her paintings amid a variety of windows that bring in an abundance of natural light.

The Painting Studio

A former teacher-turned-full-time painter, Tamara often holds workshops in her shed.

The Painting Studio

Adding minimal, yet personal, items like this plant and utensil holder allow for personal style to be incorporated even more into the shed.

The Jewelry Maker's Space

Sonoma, California, jewelry and clothing maker Anne Freund brings charm and a touch of romance to this cozy shed that includes a workroom and storage area.

The Jewelry Maker's Space

Having a workspace separate from your living space provides the perfect escape, and prevents work from seeping into other parts of your life.

In Anne's shed, this painted pallet with nails is an easy way to show off all of her hard work.

The Photo Studio/Sleeping Cottage

La Casita is the clever, dual-purpose invention of Dallas, Texas, resident Paige Morse.

The Photo Studio/Sleeping Cottage

Paige uses the clean-lined space with a Scandinavian influence as a photo studio. But she makes extra money by renting out her home on Airbnb, so when guests are booked, she just retreats to her backyard getaway which includes a functioning kitchen and bath.

The Photo Studio/Sleeping Cottage

This picture-perfect space also has a quite homey feel with all of Paige's personal touches.

The Photo Studio/Sleeping Cottage

While Paige's house is occupied by guests, she can have complete privacy with the fully functional bathroom and kitchen in her she shed — a plus for any space.
