This planter was knocking around in the shed for ages, so long in fact that the bulbs had turned mushy, so I decided to give it a new lease of life with the aide of….
If you want to make your own you need the following items:
As it was so disgustingly grubby I gave it a good clean, empting the soil on to the flower beds and disposing of the bulbs.
Whilst allowing it to dry thoroughly, I covered the garden table in newspaper.
When it was totally dry, I started spraying it in short bursts,
Tips – 1) Use spray paint when you are up wind, I got covered in a fine mist of paint!
2) Cover the entire work area, and them some! I now have an attractive mist of paint on the table, opps!
Once I had painted everything in sight, I made a coffee and let the paint dry.
Putting the pots back in the basket I then had to decide where to put it, as our bathroom already has a bit of a French shabby chic feel with some of the accessories it seemed only right that this should go in there also.
It’s so impressive what a transformation you can get from a simple coat of paint, I just love this new storage, practical yet cute!
