Thorndown Stockists & Partners

Roundpeg Outdoor Buildings

Roundpeg-21x8-Apex shedRoundpeg launched at the start of 2000 with over 30 years combined experience in the industry. The first 2 years in business were difficult but exciting with Brexit and a global pandemic to contend with. 

They have found their niche in offering bespoke and standard buildings as well as a friendly and knowledgeable service to customers. The company will make anything from the smallest BBQ shelter to big garden rooms, to use all year round.

They offer a factory spray painting service on all the buildings, and with the garden rooms this is provided within the price. All customers receive the excellent colour cards from Thorndown and once they have narrowed their choice down, small painted samples are sent so the customer knows exactly what they will be receiving on the day their building is fitted.  

They use Thorndown because the paint is made in the UK, it is environmentally friendly, a quality product that lasts and Thorndown are such a nice company to deal with, nothing is too much trouble.

Blue Diamond

This fantastic national garden centre chain has a strong horticultural heritage from the man at the helm, Alan Roper, who is greatly respected within the industry.

Their garden centres have a great stock of plants and are brimming with lovely gifts and goods often from local and independent suppliers.

We are very proud to have been selected as a supplier to Blue Diamond and our local Cadbury Garden Centre in Congresbury, now stocks a wide variety of our Wood Paint and Peelable Glass Paint.

Throughout 2021 we will be appearing in more stores up and down the country giving a great retail option for buying our paints.

We will add location listings as we appear in-store!


Sat in the beautiful county of Devon is this very posh shed company that specialises in designing and building the most stunning bespoke sheds and timber buildings.

Wood&Space can make whatever your imagination comes up with as long as it’s physically possible and not too large! These elegant sheds are designed to enhance the garden and built to last. And of course painted with Thorndown Wood Paint helps to protect the timber so it looks fabulous and can last a lifetime.

They are installed with such care that they look as if the garden has been designed around them. This shed painted in Thorndown Yew Green Wood Paint has many attractive design features from the cedar shingle tiled roof to a stable door and sash windows painted in Thorndown Tor Stone. Painting the main body in a dark colour helps it to disappear into the planting and sit with the boundary fencing, whilst the contrasting lighter wood paint colour on the door and windows accentuates the design features and brightens the building drawing your eye to it.

This shed painted in Bishop Blue Wood Paint perfectly compliments the surroundings and takes you into the open landscape beyond. The building also has many attractive design features from the star cutout to the gable detailing above the door and attractive landscape picture windows along the side wall. For the natural look you can leave timber unpainted but paint it with a couple of coats of our UV Clear Wood Paint to seal it with a water-repellent coating and protect the wood from the weather. The UV blockers will also prevent fading of the timber colour from the sun’s rays.

Quality of service is high and design and build is carried out to offer the best value for money, with sheds being installed from Devon to London and up in Edinburgh. Steven sees using Thorndown Wood Paints as part of his high-quality package and said that he’s “exclusively using your paints from now on, they are so much nicer to apply than others, it almost makes painting a pleasure, almost mind!”.

Garden Affairs

From Trowbridge in Wiltshire this fabulous company offer a fantastic range of high quality garden buildings and structures, from beautiful gazebos to garden sheds, buildings and garages. Their designs are innovative and impressive and to go with their quality offerings, they recommend painting with Thorndown Wood Paint as being a brand they trust.

One of the directors created her own allotment hideaway to store tools and admire her plot from when the rain sets in. Council and allotment rules are strict so the design had to be practical and appealing. Restrictions on colours were also strict but luckily the council and other allotment goers approved of Bishop Blue wood paint as a stylish and complimentary colour choice.

It sits perfectly in the allotment surrounded by a very plentiful plot, bursting with colour and life.

You can see more examples of Garden Affairs buildings painted in Thorndown Wood Paint in our Projects area under Sheds/The Natural Look with a very pretty shed painted in Sedge Green and a Man Mansion in Ash.

Explore the full range of Garden Affairs buildings on their website garden or visit their show site at Trowbridge Garden Centre, 288 Frome Road, Trowbridge, Wiltshire, BA14 0DT. If you’re not in the area then they have a virtual tour on their website, showcasing some of their brilliant buildings.

Jacks & Stripes

Jacks & Stripes are a pretty talented and unique signmaking husband and wife business in Taunton, Somerset. Their signs range from business signs to decorative ones for the home and garden such as their very popular Indian Sunset sign shown on the left. They first came across Thorndown Paints when (local legend) John Tucker Carpentry made us a display stand.

Here’s what Gordie from Jacks & Stripes has to say about us: “We’re a not-very-secret fan boy and girl of John Tucker and so had to check out Thorndown in more detail. When we discovered that they too are one of the weird married couples who actually work together and that their paint – like our signs – is handmade in Somerset, we were bound by fate to use them forever more, amen! The best part about it is the service is lightning quick and the paint is easily the best we have used since we made our first home gift signs back in 2011.

Working in a small workshop, the fact that the paint is odourless is a real bonus. The versatility and resistance to weather makes it a great choice for our outdoor signs too. We’ve used it on anything from a hanging pub sign at The Ring of Bells pub in Taunton to a full camping interior for a 1978 VW bus we’ve restored. If you want to truly shop local this Christmas, give us a shout. We love making bespoke signs, especially at this time of year! Email us and follow us on Instagram to see our latest creations.”

The background was painted in RAL 160 30 10 Exclusive Green for a traditional range car green look, then Mandi hand painted the rest of the sign using One Shot enamel sign writers paint for the lettering and details.
