How to Paint A Shed


Before painting your shed its most important to ensure that your surfaces have been properly prepared, make any repairs or replace any decayed sections of wood. If there are large cracks or splits in the wood, use an exterior wood filler to repair them. Once your surfaces have been properly repaired, protect the ground around your shed by using plastic or painting sheets and trim back any excess foliage. Using a wire brush remove any loose paint or flaking dirt to ensure your surfaces are smooth and ready for painting.


If your shed has any windows or hinges that you don't want splashed with paint ensure that you use masking tape to provide the neatest finish possible. 


Starting at the top of your shed and using a wide brush or roller, start applying your paint, as per the manufacturer's guide. Ensure when applying your paint that your careful to not let it drip to much and make sure that you use long, steady strokes that follow along with the grain perfectly. For larger, flat areas, why not use a roller to help speed things up if your tight on time.
