Shed Makeover {with 3M}


I am so excited to share my shed makeover with you!

I have been wanting to do a makeover on our shed from the first day we moved into our home two years ago.  Mainly because the previous owners decided to buy a gallon of paint the color of vomit to paint the shed.

It was uh-gly!  Ugly enough to tear down, if it weren’t for the fact that we needed the storage space so badly.

And since we have been doing so much work on the inside of our home for the past two years, this little shed has had to wait.  But I was dreaming about it last year and posted about it HERE.

Well, I finally got the motivation to do a little makeover on this shed this past week.


Here are the supplies I used:


1. 3M Wood Filler

2. 3M™ Sandblaster sanding sponge {3M Advanced Abrasives}

3. ScotchBlue™™ Painter’s Tape

4. Exterior Paint

5. Paint Sprayer and Paint brush

6. Power washer


The first thing I wanted to do was replace the little window in the shed with a larger one.

So I enlisted my hubby to help me with this part.

He installed a larger window and trimmed it out with 1×3’s.

When he was finished with that, I started giving the shed a good ol’ power washing.  Just look how dirty the wood entry was…

I power washed that entire shed!

Then it was time to fill up all the cracks in the wood.

I used 3M Wood Filler over all the cracks and screw holes.

Then I used my 3M Sandblaster Sanding pad to sand all of the wood filler smooth.

My sanding sponge is just one of the many wonderful 3M Advanced Abrasives.

Now all of my surfaces were ready to paint!  So I covered up the window with my ScotchBlue™™ Painter’s Tape .

This stuff was the bomb-diggity!  Even my husband was impressed with this exterior ScotchBlue tape!

Once the window was covered, it was time to paint!

So I got out my paint sprayer and went to town.

We painted the shed the same color that we used to paint our home’s exterior, White Dove by Sherwin Williams.

I had the shed painted in no time and began to move on to the trim.

Using my ScotchBlue tape again, I painted the trim around the window.

We used the same color that we used on our home’s shutters, Ebony Fields by Valspar.

Once the trim was finished getting painted, I decided to add a little bit of landscaping and a window box to match the ones I just added to our barn.

I LOVE our little shed now!  It’s so bright and cheerful to look at now.  Smile

  1. I love the shed! Are you still using the wagoner paint sprayer? I have been given some built in cabinets and currently am in the middle of repainting all of my doors and trim white,(they were cream before), I think it would be quicker and look nicer on the doors and built ins to use the sprayer. So if you can tell me what you think works best as far as what kind of sprayer, please share!

  2. Looks great! Did you ever post pictures of the house exterior after painting? It looks like it was at the end of June and you sure have had a lot going on since then. I did a search but didn’t find it – just that you were doing it.
