Now that spring has finally arrived and the garden begins to bloom, my thoughts turn to all things outside the home as I start to spend more time in my garden.
An easy way to refresh and liven up your tired outdoor furniture is to add a splash of colour by painting flower pots, old benches, garages, front doors, summerhouses and bird-boxes.
I like to use colours that complement the garden theme; dark greens and blues i think are always popular garden shades. Softer multi-tonal blues and greens have a very calming feel and make me feel relaxed.
Bright and bolder colours like oranges, reds and yellows really have a summery feel and i think are more popular as people look to add colour to their garden all year round.
I love to get imaginative by painting garden furniture, or creating art in the garden by painting garden tools making them an unusual decorative feature but also fairly easy to paint!
