The shed office

$1,395: Deck out the office. The number-one expenditure, the shed from the Home Depot was outfit­ted in Di’s quirky style with art—including a Spanish cross. The desktop inside is an old door.

$240: Repurpose. This tall chartreuse pot (left; rollinggreensnursery.com) was purchased for a client and intended as a fountain. But Di couldn’t make it water-tight, so she “gifted” it to her garden.

Other costs: Pushpin wallboards, $300; desk (old door), $30.
