I got a new shed a few months ago, which was painted with preservative as soon as it had been erected.

Watching a YouTube gardening channel, the person has painted the inside of their shed white, which makes it far brighter.

I think I fancy doing this myself

has anybody done it and if so, which paint is required .. a simple white emulsion, or perhaps an oil-based undercoat and gloss coat.

thank you

With all the stuff on shelves and tools and netting hanging from hooks, I can't really see my shed walls  :lol: :lol:

I'd probably go for a white Cuprinol sort of paint, as you can easily re-coat it when the inevitable grass stains appear, or the mud splatters everywhere, like it certainly does here...

It's actually not a bad idea to make it all a bit brighter, but depends on how you're using your shed, a safe haven, a junk room, a carpentry bench-room, a place to pot on things etc...

Like Mum's shed above, we have 'S' hooks nailed all around the walls and shelves, and hang everything up...

Could use some of the paint I unearthed yesterday, probably different colours for each wall.

Eventually did it.  Two walls are a very pale blue, two are magnolia.  Hoping that as it looks clean and fresh it will encourage me to keep the shed a bit tidier than normal!
