National Shed Week sponsored by Cuprinol Sprayable – Share your shed and win £1000

I’m excited to welcome Cuprinol Sprayable as the sponsor for Shed Week 2010 which of course includes Shed of the Year.

Thanks to their sponsorship, this year’s Shed of the Year winner can look forward to a grand prize of £1000 and all category winners will get Cuprinol Sprayable products, so you can take good care of your shed!

What I was pleased about is that Cuprinol are as excited about sheds as us sheddies and have a great range of sprayable products for rough sawn sheds and fences that help to treat garden wood effectively and easily.

My favourite product from the range is the Cuprinol 5 Year Ducksback Sprayable because it’s got some added waxes in the formulation that make the wood extra water repellent plus it’s fast to use. You just need to use one of the Cuprinol sprayers and you can then really spray a fence panel in less than 4 minutes, just as they do on the telly.

With this product you also get colour and protection for 5 years and there’s a great range of colours to choose from. Forest Green is my favourite but Mrs Uncle Wilco prefers the Autumn Brown to protect her summerhouse.

Don’t forget, you only stand a chance of winning the great sum of £1000 and fantastic woodcare products courtesy of Cuprinol Sprayable if you enter your shed, so if you haven’t already done it, get it ready and submit your pictures! .

Here’s this year’s Shed Week countdown:

  • Deadline for Shed Entry – 20th May 2010
  • Public judging takes place online until – 20th June 2010
  • Category winners / Shed Week finalists to be announced on the 21st June
  • The category winners are then judged to select the overall 2010 Shed
    Week winner

Also to say I am now a member of the The Cuprinol Wood Preservation Society!

So sing along

“We are the Wood Preservation Society
Your old wood pines for some TLC
Sprayers halve the time – That works for me
Sun and rain might simply bounce off
And more colours – than Vincent Van Gogh
We are the Wood Preservation Society
We are the Wood Preservation Society”

So come on sheddies please share your Shed.

  1. Haha! Yeah I've changed the words on Fort Cox and put some new photos up too!!! One grand is brilliant, but even if top prize was a cup of tea* I'd still want to win 'Shed of the Year'!!! I'd be happy with category winner.

    There's super tough competition though, amazing shed out there.

    *if in the unlikely circumstances of winning I'm not saying I forfeit the top prize!!!!!!!!

  2. Great stuff, can't wait for Shed of the Year results… I'm feeling competitive!!
