REPAIRING WOOD ROT AROUND THE BOTTOM

covering existing wood rot.
|New boards cover old rot.|
First, we gave it a good washing down to get any chipping paint and dirt off the shed. We cut pressure treated boards to fit around the bottom to cover the wood rot.
|We cut off the rotten wood from|
from the bottom of the door.
|We trimmed out the wood at the base of the door |
to match the baseboards around the shed.
FIX FASCIA BOARDS ALONG THE ROOF
The fascia boards around the roof were in terrible shape and required replacing. Mr. ShabbyGlam replaced all those boards with pressure treated wood. Here's the before/after:
|Rotten Fascia Boards and Leaky, Moss-covered Roof|
|Replaced Fascia Boards|
|Shingles being laid on the roof|
Nancy painstakingly scraped off the moss that was growing over the roof. After inspecting the roof and finding that the wood was solid and did not need replacing, Mr. ShabbyGlam shingled over the old roof. Jon also added a drip edge (the white strip in the picture) to protect the new boards from rot.

|Door knocker we found|
antiquing in Essex, MA.
Now that we had addressed all of the repairs, we prepped and painted. We filled all the holes and cracks with wood putty, then painted the shed door Behr Chianti Red, the Fascia and Trim Behr Linen White, and the walls Benjamin Moore Dartsmouth Green.
We took a break on Sunday from our labors and went antiquing in Essex, MA. We found the perfect crowning jewel for our new shed door - an iron garden trowel door knocker!
