Friends! We painted the shed Cy built, and I absolutely LOVE it!
Many of us have items outside that frequently need to be painted like sheds, benches, doors, planters, etc. We had a shed back at our Kentucky home that we would freshen up with a new coat of paint every few years. This shed, at our Tennessee home, is newly built and getting its first coat of paint, but we will also have freshen it up every few years as well.
Today, I wanted to share my favorite paint tools I used, and you could use too, if you have something that needs to be painted at your home!
The supplies are actually pretty simple: a brush, a roller, a paint tray, a paint pail, and liners!

(I created a video below to show the painting process in action, and I talk a little about these products. You can also see my, Eli, and Adam painting in the dark! haha!)
For my paint brush, I loved using the Chinex Elite Bow Brush.
Y’all, this brush holds SO MUCH paint! Like seriously. The brush bristles are actually “Pre-flagged” on the ends (kind of like split hairs) so that the brush picks up and holds more paint. Plus, the pre-flagged bristles make the paint go on more smoothly.
I used this brush to trim out all the batten and edges on the shed. (Since we were painting the shed all one color, I didn’t need to cut in with an angled brush.)
To hold the paint for my paint brush, I used my Purdy pail and paint liners! I love this pail because it has a magnet on the side that holds up your brush when you are not painting. (Check out the video.)
And the paint liners make it so easy to clean up! I just pulled out the liner and threw it away when I was finished.
Adam, Eli, and I took turns using the pail as we climbed the ladder to some hard to reach places.
To paint the smooth parts of the shed, I used the Purdy Golden Eagle roller with 1/2 ” nap, the 9 inch Revolution roller frame, and the Purdy Power Lock extension poll.
Just like the Chinex Elite brush I used, I was amazed at how much paint the Golden Eagle roller held! I could roll half way down the shed before I had to add more paint! It definitely saved me some time! This roller can be used with all latex and oil based paints, and on indoor or outdoor projects.
And the Power Lock extension poll made it easy to roll paint to the top of the shed.
When using a roller, but sure to use the Purdy Nest paint tray. It is so durable and holds up to 1.5 gallons of paint! Just don’t forget the liners for easy cleanup!
Y’all, I’m so in love with our newly painted shed! I think it turned out great! The boys helped me landscaped the sides of the shed, and Cy hung some lights on each side of the doors for me. It’s almost too pretty to be a shed, don’t ya think?!
I keep telling Cy this needs to be my “she shed,” so I can finally have an office for my work, but I haven’t convinced him yet. :(
Can y’all help me? haha!
Like I said, here is a short video of our shed project for you to check out….

Tell me, is there something outdoors at your home that could use a new coat of paint?
