A New Coat of Paint, Inside and Out
Make a shed into a new space with interior and exterior paint. Since most sheds are small, this is a quick painting job you can finish over a weekend with the proper preparation. If the shed is distant from the house, you can choose its own color scheme (warm pastels and flower-like shades are popular). Otherwise, try to match your house color scheme so they don't clash.

Seal Up Cracks
Garden sheds, particularly stand-alone sheds used for storing equipment, often need to be sealed to prevent drafts, bugs, dust and other problems. After cleaning out the shed, be prepared to break out the caulk and weatherstripping to help make the shed as airtight as possible. A very rickety shed may need to have walls replaced.
