Yesterday I shared the miracle of the shed being built in one day. We went from grass to shed before my kids got home from school.
After the shed was built, but before we could start putting stuff in it, I wanted to paint the inside. Why would I want to paint the inside of a shed that no one will ever see? Well, because I hated the rough feel of wood so much and am terrified of splinters (not joking – terrified).
The inside of the shed before we started painting was a very rough particle board mixed with 2x4s.
The most annoying part of it was prepping the windows – I taped plastic over it. This was also the most amazing thing – covering the windows was my only prep.
That said, these were the only supplies I needed.
The paint color really didn’t matter to me. It was really ALL ABOUT putting a coat of paint over the rough wood. Since it didn’t matter, I just picked up a lightish color from the “oops” section at Lowe’s. To make sure I had enough paint, I mixed the oops paint with some leftover from a room I’d done before.
The real secret weapon of the operation was the paint sprayer. I used the same paint sprayer that I used to paint my trim. This thing has come in so handy. And look how cute my baby girl looks using it!
Of course, whatever I’m doing, it’s hard to keep kids out of it. But, they really couldn’t paint the shed “wrong” – so the more the merrier! (And in case you’re wondering, Brian was dressed as a “New York guy.”)
I love how easy the paint sprayer made this job. No brushes in knicks and crannies, just easy spraying!
Now the garage is all painted inside, including the floors and what I could reach of the ceiling. It was a job done, easily! I wish all DIY projects could be as easy!
