Garden crafting

So, whilst perusing Ikea yesterday i spotted a stack of wooden crates and i thought to myself they may look great in my garden if i could find some nice colours to paint them. I’m currently going with a bit of a tropical them so bright turquoise and pink etc…. They were £9 each which for the quality of them thought was a good price (you can get them cheaper).20170716_144243

After Ikea it was a trip to B&Q to try and find a small pot of paint for it and i found the perfect colour, Summer Sky from Ronseal and a small tin was £3.97, perfect.

It was fairly easy to put together although i did get one of the ends the wrong way round and had to take it off and turn it around, typical for me!

The painting seemed to take forever! It didn’t get it was about 45 degrees(well 25 but felt hotter!) but it dried well and i was able to add a couple of coats in quick time really. It says apply 3 coats but 2 was enough for me.

I’m chuffed with the colour. It really goes well with my theme. This was a bit of a test so i’ve left it just painted but with a bit more time i’d probably jazz it up a bit with some lettering or something. 20170717_11581320170717_115807
