Since the shed arrived on Monday last week, the days when I could get out to do the wood treatment have not been frequent, not when you have other things to do as well, like washing, cooking, shopping, housework - yes I know it's a dirty word for us crafters, but it does have to be done every so often.
I have managed to get most of the panels done though - the other night I was out there till gone 8.30pm thinking oh good now it's all done, only to find the doors had not been done at all. I went to check on the panels on Monday afternoon, and they really do look superb - I decided on Forest Green as the colour and with 2 coats of it, it looks wonderful. Even the original Craft shed, I tried out 2 coats of it on the front end of that, and it looks like a different shed. Regardless of what the manufacturer says, always stir the wood treatment. Our other shed - the one that stores stuff that would normally go in a loft, I used the same wood treatment on this, but did not stir it, it said it on the instructions, so I followed them. Now I do what I think is right to achieve the effect I want.
Whilst doing all this wood treatment, I was imagining what the shed will look like when complete, and I started thinking of the look for next summer – yes I know what summer is – probably one day in June or July sometime. So I am thinking some nice window boxes with nasturtiums and lobelia, and probably for the spring, snowdrops, daffodils, tulips.
Hopefully I will remember to get my Camera back from my Son today, so that I can take step by step pictures.
