painted garden junk (an update)


Well, as I was saying in my last post, Nao took it upon himself to paint all our junky furniture so we can use them in the garden instead of our manky table!




He painted them in Farrow & ball paints, sanded a bit, and the rubbed in a dark Briwax. Now they look amazing!


He sorted out all our garden stuff too and re potted all the plants so that we now have no plastic pots in garden at all...wow!





We bought this chair from a lady down the road who sells junk, for about £4 so that's even cheaper than Ikea! Ha.




Our freshly cleared ally way, I didn't realise the cat in the window when I took this photo, funny lookin!





That plant stand we bought in market is terrific for small London gardens, and my plum tree (twig in the pot) can relax now that all its plums are in my cake!
