Our garden shed has a new lease on life. Here is an up close and personal 'before' shot, in all it's glory...
and, this is how it looks now!
This quick DIY project took about a day, and cost us $222.00. Here's a breakdown:
- new (black) roof shingles, $30 per box and we used 4 boxes = $120.00
- roofing nails = $29.00
- 2" x 1" wood trim (to frame the the tiny windows), = $9.00 for 15 linear feet
- paint, $34.00 per gallon and we used 2 gallons = $64.00
I had a bit of trouble deciding on a suitable color (I didn't want it to be too blue, too purple, too black...).
But, I finally selected Behr Premium Exterior Paint in "Cracked Pepper" (in a flat finish), and used Martha Stewart's "Popcorn" in exterior semi-gloss for the trim. We LOVE how it turned out.
It now has become a stylish place to house the brand new riding mower (there it is, off in the distance)...
And to celebrate the new shed, I bought myself a darling pink azalea bush.
