Then last month 3M contacted me for a campaign they’re doing about outdoor painting projects.
Now, the most important thing to remember when painting a rusty metal shed is NOT to do it in late July in South Texas. I’m now going to become one of those people that sings its praises, because the stuff is magic. Next up was to prime the shed, I used Behr® Premium Plus® Exterior Multi-Surface Primer and Sealer. I used Behr® Marquee™ (in Oat Straw 740C-3) for painting the shed, which is meant for outdoor things that are going to get abused and ignored.
After that I moved my tape, grabbed my favorite Wooster® paint brush, and painted the trim (Marquee™ Ultra Pure White 1850) and the doors (Marquee™ Subtle Touch 790E-1). Then I called it a day, abandon the outdoor inferno, and took my sweaty, paint splattered self inside for a shower. Eventually he got it on though, and we’re not going to have to torch the shed like he had been claiming was our only option.
This project is actually part of a summer blog hop called “Get It, Got It, Go” and is being hosted by Kate at Centsational Girl.

It really looks awesome – your little guy was too cute with the splattered paint all over him (oops!).
I worry that water will be able to get in during a heavy rain, especially since there are virtually no overhangs. We just moved into a home with this exact same shed in the backyard (in the before pictures, that is!) You did such a great job painting this, I need to show my husband and try to convince him now. I hate to ask this, but are you sure the roofing material is put on the right direction and won’t leak? Wow ,beautiful job ,i would like to do the same may be i will have to buy a spray painter like you .At all ,you apply very well every product and the roof looks pretty good !

I had other prep planned for the shed, but after cleaning it with TSP we (my mom was helping me with the project) decided that it was good to go. I had never used a paint sprayer before (so many firsts in this post!) and was hoping it would make painting the shed go really quickly. Seriously, it took me no time at all the paint the whole shed and the finish was smooth and beautiful.
For this I used ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape for Exterior Surfaces (2097) and taped off the parts I wanted to keep white. The kinda hot where you wish you were naked… but also that you were wearing ALL THE CLOTHES so that the burning rays of sun never touch your delicate skin. And while I felt bad that it wasn’t going well, I was also thanking Jesus that replacing the roof was 100% his idea and not something I asked him to do.

I’ll have to take some tips from your husband on how to persuade someone to paint a shed!
I’ve tried doing it a couple of times and it hardly ever works out like I want it to. The tall equipment storage shed with carport is versatile enough to fit many home owner needs as well as business needs.
The 5' x 7' roll-up door is ideal for storing all of your landscaping gear and even a work bench too.
The photo featured of this metal building showcases our dual-color application and is a great way to compliment your homes' colors.
The picture featured shows a 16' x 8' residential garage door with electric motor and an 8' x 8' residential garage door.
We needed a place to store lawn equipment, paint, and general homeowner stuff, so Adam’s parents offered us an old metal shed that was on their property.


I wanted to do a project that actually needed doing, not something like painting a pot or outdoor rug that I have no current use for. It comes in powder form, you mix it with warm water, get to scrubbing, and the dirt and rust come pouring off. My peanut gallery of preschoolers had abandon me for dinosaur puzzles in the air conditioning.
I had planned on just leaving it (or maybe painting it), but Adam decided it would be a good idea to replace it. I eyeballed the design, taping off the X shape (door on the right) and then cutting out the extra tape (door on the left). It really looks awesome – your little guy was too cute with the splattered paint all over him (oops!).
Looking at the pictures of your project it reminds me about doing something similar on the metal buildings that my father has in his backyard especially the shed like one. If you need different specifications or extra doors and windows give us a call today and start designing a building that is ideal for your needs.
The standard metal utility shed features a walk-in door as well as a window to let in natural light. I had no idea how much you needed to thin the paint (spoiler alert, it’s a lot), and I spent a lot of time cleaning and unclogging the sprayer. The 9' leg height provides additional height clearance for larger vehicles including recreational vehicles such as golf carts. With thousands of choices you are sure to get the building you need on a budget you can afford. Since my shed was only lightly rusted I decided sanding it wasn’t necessary and chose to wash it with TSP instead.
Taking the original roof off was a really bad idea (sorry baby), but at this point it is what it is! TSP stands for trisodium phosphate, you can buy it at the hardware store and it isn’t expensive at all. In other words, when you remove the roof the walls just kind of flop around and infuriate your husband.
