Progress on the shed – Part four.

I spent time stripping the door back and giving it a couple of coats of undercoat and paint.  I’d love to share the name of colour I  used but its no longer visible.  I’m a messy painter.  The true colour of the door is different to how it appears in these photos, it looks a little greener.  Why does this happen???

We made a little planter box to go under the window.  I bought a piece of decorative trim from Woodworkers to give it a little bit of character.

And finally we painted the weather boards in a dark grey.  This colour I do remember!! It’s Monument.  This will be the colour we use to paint the exterior of the house (no clue when this will happen).

We’re really happy with the result.  It reminds us of a little beach hut.


We’re now ready to add a path and lay turf.  This is what it looks like now.

  1. Boy, did that ever turn out nice. And the trim on the window box is a detail you will always be happy you took the time to do. You know, I always have trouble photographing blue, also. Whether it is aqua, turquoise, or mint for some reason it is difficult to capture with digital cameras.

    • Thanks so much for your lovely feedback. We’re really happy with it! I’m pleased to hear that I’m not the only one who has noticed how hard it is photograph something blue.

    So cute. Photographing good color renditions has to do with the color-temperature of the light which the human eye can accommodate instantaneously but camera settings must adjust for. Jo @ Let’s Face the Music

    • Thank you so much.
      I agree with you about people being a little timid about using bright colours. If you do it and you find it too bright, it’s so easy to sand back and change.
