Mrs. Appleton noticed my work building a retaining wall. She stopped by and asked if I could paint her shed.  

This post shows the six steps to painting an exterior shed wall. 

Step 1: Fig.1 shows the shed wall was facing her living room and was reflecting the sun light into her living room. 
Step 2: Fig.2
shows the tools needed for this job.

Step 3: Fig.3 shows that a painters tarp was used to protect the cement and the grass area near the shed wall. One coat of exterior white primer was painted over the white semi gloss paint before applying the light brown exterior paint provided by Mrs. Appleton.

Step 4: Fig.4 and fig.5 shows the edge cutting. Edge cutting is painting the edges of the shed wall because the paint roller can not do a good job or rolling near the edge.

Step 5: Fig.6 and fig.7 shows the wall has been rolled and now a simple touch up.

Step 6: Fig.8 shows the paint can lids being hammered down to secure the paint cans. Fig.9 shows the job is finished and now the wall will not reflect as much light in her living room again.
