Our "New" Shed

Our shed in the backyard has definitely seen better days. In fact, one of the major projects on our list when we bought the house was to paint the shed. And in true McKinnon fashion, it only took a little under 2 years to get it finished.

BEFORE

AFTER

We learned a lot about exterior shed colors over this project. The major point being that if we could do it again (we're not) we'd chose different colors. The dark brown and white is nice but it seems REALLY obvious. As if our whole neighborhood can now look into our backyard and say, "Wow! There's a shed!"

Maybe gray and white would have been more subtle....

Next project - the master bedroom walls and ceiling.

Looks nice. Good job.

Oh no, I like it that way. Makes it look like you have it there on purpose instead of just plopping a shed in the backyard. I'd stick a pot of flowers by it too. Love it.

It's not just a shed - but WHAT A SHED! It's beautiful. I think you did a fabulous job on it!

Funny how that works, you figure out how you would really want it done after you are done :) But it looks nice. Anxious to see your master bedroom--in a few years :)
