The problem was that I have a small town garden and I desperately needed a shed for it. No matter how small the shed was going to be you wouldn't miss it! That's when I decided to make the shed a feature so that it would be something fun to look at in the garden. I already had some bright and colourful Marimekko planters (see here) in the garden so I thought I'd paint the shed to match.
Marimekko is a well known Finnish design company famous for their bold and colourful prints and textiles.
