Last year I gave my little storage shed a much needed makeover!
You can see the complete transformation here.
This is the perfect time of the year to complete this kind of project...too early in most places to plant flowers but warm enough most days to paint!
Let's be honest...storage sheds can be a real eye sore. But with a tiny bit of imagination and a little "oops" paint from your local home improvement store, they can easily be transformed. They have paint for every type of material...plastic, metal, wood! Hose it down first, then use a good exterior primer and GET CREATIVE!!!!
Is your storage shed one of those ugly "barn" shaped things? Paint it to look like a REAL barn. (Barn red with white trim! Google it!)
No windows in your shed? Paint fake ones...seriously, just paint a fake window. Maybe some shutters...real or painted! Attach a little flower box and put some flowers in it!
Same with the door...paint it to look like mine! Or a pretty atrium door. Hang a grapevine wreath on it...anything to doll it up a bit!
Attach fake light fixtures or hang lanterns! (Mine are real light fixtures, but they don''t work!)
Again, google "garden sheds" or "storage buildings" and find something you think is cute and "fake" it! Pinterest has some awesome pictures of dolled up storage and garden sheds!
Anything to make it look like something other than a boring old storage shed.
This is a great weekend project for the entire family. Who cares if you drip paint all over the yard...PERFECT project for the kids! (Kids always think they want to help paint...always!)
Turn your ugly old storage shed into something other than an "eye sore!" You won't regret it!
AND YOU CAN DO IT!!!!
