I love outdoor living but gardening is not really my thing so I decided to brighten up the garden by other means.
After a trip to Budapest, I was inspired by the colourful and quirky ruin bars, particularly Szimpla Kert, pictured below.
I purchased some spray paints in a variety of colours and gathered some items to spruce up. I already had dining room chairs, terracotta pots, a hammock stand and a lantern and I picked up a child’s bike (purely for decorative purposes) and a table from the local recycling centre.
Our rabbits like to eat the grass in the back garden and probably wouldn’t like the taste or toxicity of spray paint so I lay down a sheet in the front garden, moved my car well out of the way, and started spraying.
I was really pleased with the results.
I found an unusual plant pot to add extra decoration but Fozzy, our mini-labradoodle, did not approve.
The newly painted furniture was arranged in the corner of the garden and flags added to brighten up the wall.
The garden was now ready to be enjoyed by friends and family at the barbecue of the year.
