Transform your shed into a Beach Hut
Transform your Garden Shed into a beautiful Beach Hut this Summer! Since we started running our Shed of the Month competition we've received some inspiring images of sheds showing all the different ways that people use their shed space. One of our favourite entries was a Tiger Shed transformed into an idyllic Beach Hut; perfect to enjoy in the summer heat! You too can transform your Tiger Shed into a beachy dreamland just by following some of our simple tips below (don't forget to share your shed with us to be in for a chance to win our 'Shed of the Month' @TigerSheds)...
The first step is to give your shed a beautiful paint job. To get the traditional 'Beach Hut' look give your shed stripes using a vibrant pastel colour and either a white or cream to give the full effect. We think that this pattern works perfectly on the Tiger Shiplap Apex Shed just like the one in the image. The simplest and easiest way to achieve perfect stripes on your shed is by: 1) Being very careful, paint alternative rows of cream or white on your shed 2) Once the paint is dry. Mask off the remaining rows to prevent you from painting outside the lines. 3) Pick a bright and vibrant colour, usually pastel, and paint the remaining rows. 4) Once dry, peel off the masking tape and there you have the perfect 'Beach Hut' look.

With all those Summer parties and BBQ's your hot party guests will want somewhere to relax and take it easy. Deck chairs are the perfect addition in keeping that beach theme alive. Southsea Deckchairs have a stunning collection of furniture which would fit perfectly either inside or outside your shed. In particular we liked the Armchair Acrylic C75.
