Scary Shed Nightmare


This is not a HOW TO post on decorating your shed for Halloween. I am not going to give out the perfect Halloween paint colors or tell you that my next step is to paint a silhouette of a black cat on the side of the building and play scary music on auto-play each day leading to October 31.

Yes, I am sure that some may like this shed…in fact it would be perfect for the “Adam’s Family” or the “Muensters”, but Buttercup Farm…not so much.

The good news….it is paint. The bad news is…it is oil paint. This means that it could take a few weeks before it is ready to take another coat (I’ll try to paint the trim white first).

In the mean time….it IS Halloween and I’ll make the best of it.


Down home friends and what they say...

You are too funny!

Sorry that your shed did not turn out the way you had planned. Who knows…maybe the white trim will lighten things up!

I like it Shawn. The white trim will make a lot of difference and you may decide you like it too. Give it some time. Oil paint is a job to paint with and over. I say paint the trim and learn to love it!

I like it too — but I was born on Halloween so maybe there’s a bias! However, if Artist likes it then you are on the right track, and I’m sure you’ll make it your own and very lovely. I can just picture some holly and greens spilling out of those window boxes…mmmmmm…..

Hi Shawn! LOL! Love the funny intro,….maybe a toumbstone nearby with a ghost peeking out..???…
Just kidding! I’m absolutely positive this will look “Buttercup Farm Beautiful” when it dons the crisp white trim!…..until then,…go with it, right?…….
Holly and Ivy…..mmmmmm…..Loving it!!!!….. :)
Have a great day!
