Shed Painting Ideas and How to Create a Themed Shed

Every garden needs a shed, a place that your garden tools can call home - as well as the various other items and equipment that cannot be stored in the home.

When you first built your shed you will remember its impressive finish that stood boldly in the garden; however, over the years the weather has taken its toll and reduced it to a little less impressive.

We guide you through how to restore your shed's beauty. But we don't stop there.

We inspire you to get really creative and paint the interior of your shed to create a themed shed.

How to Prepare Your Shed for Painting

  • You will first need to check for any loose nails and screws. Tighten or hammer these down. 
  • Remove any obvious dirt such as spider webs, mud, algae and moss.
  • Now is a great time to fill in any gaps with caulk or wood filler.
  • Once the wood filler is dry, apply a coat of primer
  • When the primer is dry, your shed is ready to be painted.
  • Don't forget to put down drop sheets to protect the base, patio or grass.


Exterior Shed Painting Ideas

The standard garden shed is brown. You may see green or blue sheds too. However, there is nothing to stop you painting your shed any colour of the rainbow. 

If you get fed up of it, simply repaint the next season.
