Cuprinol launches competition to find Britain's most neglected shed

Shed of the Year sponsor Cuprinol recently scoured the nation to find the UK's oldest and most dilapidated shed, and is now opening a nationwide competition to find "the shed most in need of love".
Cuprinol launches competition to find Britain's most neglected shed
The winner receiving a total shed transformation by fashion house Eley Kishimoto, a husband and wife duo who recently transformed a shed (pictured) belonging to Kate Wilson, who said: "the roof was leaking, the walls rotting and the slightest breeze would send the whole structure shaking."

The shed took Eley Kishimoto three months to create from design to completion, using Cuprinol's garden shade range, and is now being dubbed the UK's most fashionable shed.

Eley Kishomoto's Mark Eley said: "I spent many days of my childhood in my grandfather's shed. A shed is a real British institution and it was great to bring in our team to put our own specialised print on this sad shed, and add some personality and colour."

The Posy Ivy print now covering the shed was originally designed by the fashion duo for their Spring Summer 2012 Collection.

Cuprinol marketing manager Kathryn Ledson said: "Sheds are becoming more and more popular as places where people can get away from the world for some 'me time'. Commissioning Eley Kishimoto to create this amazing sanctuary has been fantastic, and really proves that Cuprinol colours can help you bring out the best in your garden, even with arguably the UK's worst shed. Hopefully this will inspire Brits to cheer up their gardens."
