Garden Shed Blues

Now that our garage is nearly completed . . .

. . . my thoughts are turning to really IMPORTANT things like this:

dachshund weathervane

East Coast Weathervanes

. . . because of this adorableness:

I’m not sure if I’ll spring for the Dachshund weathervane,

but wouldn’t it be cool if I did?

Meanwhile, back to the less superficial portion of our project . . .

. . . today our humble garden shed finally gets its roof:

Yes, I paid nearly $20 on sample paint pots from Benjamin Moore.

No, I didn’t like any of them.

Fear not, though!

One can find color inspiration on Pinterest.

I recommend doing said-same!

If you’re me — type “blue** paint colors” in the search + voila.

That’s how I discovered the fabulous Benjamin Moore, Santorini blue:

One quick trip to our Benjamin Moore paint store later,

+ I have these ^^ swatches.

(**Disclaimer: I have to have a blue garden shed

because of my fondness for any blue flower.  It’s my scheme.

There’s a post for another day!)

I’m undecided about WHICH Benjamin Moore blue I’ll chose . . .

. . . but I do know that those plain Jane plywood doors MUST be tricked out!

I dig the diagonal bead board detail on these vintage garage doors:

I think I’ll push for something like this, though:

Fingers crossed I get to paint tomorrow!  Stay tuned!
