It’s true; your tool shed is probably not the first thing you would think of decorating in your garden. But painting your tool shed isn’t such a bad idea, and at worst it will only make your backyard a little bit brighter. If you are thinking about making some decorations, then here are some trendy ideas to get you started:
Paint In Stripes
If your shed is wooden and divided into panels, you have the opportunity to make some great designs. It doesn’t have to be complicated and you don’t have to be an artist; all you have to do is paint each panel in a pair of alternating colours. If you really want to get stylish, then use the paint lid to make dots across the sides of the shed.
Match Your Surroundings
It’s a good idea to paint your shed in a way that makes it blend in with the surroundings. If you have a green garden, then paint it with dark green or brown. If your garden has flowers that are pink or red, then paint your shed to match.
Conceal Your True Colours
Another good idea is to have a neutral colour on the outside, but paint the inside of the shed with bold colours. This is good for people who are reserved or want to maintain a conservative appearance, but still have an avenue for self-expression.
Graffiti might have some ugly connotations, but not all graffiti is bad. In fact, it is truly an art with the right intentions (and skill). If you have that ability (or know someone who does) then your shed is the perfect place to try it.
You can also go with the classic white colour. It gives a peaceful aura to your backyard and you can pepper it with a variety of colours.
Quick Painting Tips
Before you start painting, make sure you clean out your shed. Ideally, you should use a paint gun, but you can use a good old-fashioned paintbrush depending on the area or parts you want to paint. For parts that you don’t want to paint, just seal them off with some tape. Blue tape is good for this.
Your shed doesn’t have to be plain. You can inject some life into it and make it an attractive part of your home. Just pick the colours that match your personal taste or surroundings. Your home will look better and you will feel better. For more ideas or information on tools, just give us a call or check out our website.
