I thought I would show you some of the progress I have done on the SHED.
Wednesday I decided to give painting the shed a start, July 4 is going to be here before I know it and I do NOT like to be unprepared for a party. My youngest son and I carried all of the painting supplies to the shed and then we started to make room to paint, or rather I worked and he asked a lot of questions. I had planed on using a roller to make it go faster than if I used my usual 2 1/2 angle brush. My plan was to start trimming and then go back and forth between the roller and angle brush. Well.....that is not how it worked out, yep the whole thing was painted using my handy dandy angle brush. Surprisingly it only took me two days and I only worked a half day each time. I had more fun because I did not have to worry about getting paint on the floor and I was able to let my 3yr old paint too.
We had some fun conversations; how to paint, first paint up and then paint down, not scrubby all over. He repeated the paint up, paint down many, many, many times. I think I finally had to distract him with a snack break and he played in the yard for awhile. We also talked about how dad was going to call mom CRAZY for painting the shed WHITE, that was Wednesday. Thursday I'll be gosh darned if the little comedian didn't ask me if dad called me CRAZY. He also said how much dad was going to be so proud because we were doing such a good job. I agreed, it was easier than explaining that DAD does not bother to argue with mom when she has painting on her mind.
Here are a few pictures of the before and afters. Now please keep in mind I have only just painted the walls and there is still a lot more crap storage items that need to be moved to the garage.
Now you can actually see the floor. I am trying to decide if I am going to paint the floor. I know I can not do white, it is STILL a SHED! But, I am still thinking of doing a checkerboard pattern in medium tone gray and a blue tone, of course I still have to be creative about this. Look how much brighter it looks with the walls white.
See, now doesn't the chandelier look so much happier against the white walls.
Ha ha, you were probably thinking WHO puts a chandelier in a SHED. ME and look there are TWO!
The furniture looks much better against the white too.
Now I have to finish the floor and decide if I am going to paint the ceiling too!
Thanks for stopping by, let me know if you think I should paint the ceiling, it looks just like the walls did before they became white. Oh and stay tuned, I still have to furnish it and put my decorating touch on it. The family brochure says it is a get away cottage. You will have to check back and see if it is somewhere you would want to spend a weekend vacationing at.

I am lucky to be married to a wonderful man whom I am totally in love with. We have three adorable children who make us laugh daily, two cats and one dog. We were lucky enough to build our dream home that is filled full of love, laughter and my collections. I am loving all things white, and I believe you can always make treasures even better with some white paint. I have owned my own shop and I loved every process it involved, and one day I may want to do it again with the right partner. I try to live my life with no regrets and I believe that everything happens for a reason and to pay attention to the signs we are sent.
