Add Some Extra Colour to Your Garden with Painted Storage

20th June 2018

We’ve teamed up with specialist paint company Thorndown, to offer creative ways to add your own personal touch to our small storage range, ensuring a practical yet stylish addition to the garden.

Small garden stores provide a space saving solution for stowing away gardening tools and everyday items – a practical alternative to decluttering the garden without taking up as much room as a conventional shed.


Bringing some extra colour to the garden doesn’t have to be limited to plants and flowers; painting a small storage unit creates a contemporary aesthetic which complements or contrasts with a garden colour scheme. We have painted our Shiplap Small Garden Store in Thorndown’s subtle, pastel shades of ‘Cheddar Pink’, ‘Cathedral Green’ and the bright, sunshine yellow ‘Golden Somer’.

Each colour works beautifully in complementing surrounding plants and flowers, or would work just as well positioned against a wall or fence, so you can be creative in choosing your colour combinations!


Our Shiplap Small Garden Store is ideal for housing wellies, dog leads, watering cans and other items where they can be accessed quickly, and at 138cm in height, it is tall enough to store long-handled gardening tools in one place.


For a handy storage solution that is compact and allows for easy access, the Shiplap Garden Storage Box is both robust and attractive – perfect for positioning close to the back door and storing shoes, children’s toys and umbrellas – all those things that can typically start to clutter the house if left inside. For those who prefer more neutral tones in the garden Thorndown’s ‘Dulcote Stone’ and ‘Cavepool Grey’ gives this Storage Box a sleek and clean finish.
