My Shed looks pants, it needs a new roof, and I am cool with that, but
what about painting it, has anyone got any ideas, ie. Do I need
primer, Undercoat etc, like a room in the house, or is there a product
that you can just slap on.

If you don't mind a fairly limited range of colours then the DIY sheds
have products by the usual suspects, Cuprinol et al.
There are somewhat broader selections produced by Sadolin and Sikkens
and these are better quality products.
The broadest colour selection I have seen is made by Jotun
I've been using their Demidekk opaque paint which requires a
primer/treatment that they do, and a translucent stain called Trebitt.
The latter allows the wood grain to show through to a degree, which is
a particular effect that I wanted.
Each of these is available in a very wide range of colours since it
can be colour mixed.
To email, substitute .nospam with .gl

Yes, dont. This mistake was popular long ago, but you know how life
is, tarting up the shed is not the top priority next time aronud.
However nice it looks at first, by the time it needs doing again its
gonig to look damn terrible.
Never paint sheds. Its that simple. Dark stain can help to blend
different colours of wood if need be, but paint, no.
