This is the colour I like the best...
I have now purchased and assembled a willow weave raised bed from Robert Dyas (mainly because it is currently on offer at under £15.00 each):
I am so impressed with it, I may well buy multiple ones to go round the pond, but for now this is what has spurred me on with the painting of the fence as the positioning which I have chosen for it is directly in front of one of the fence panels leading from the house to the pond:
Today is the start of the Easter Bank Holiday weekend, so it was time to stop faffing and start painting....
Here's how I got on....
|First fence to be tackled|
|First glance at the yummy colour|
|String tied across the paint can for wiping the brush throughout, this saves you lots of dried out paint wasted round the sides of your tin|
|Each time gave the fence a good brush down first with a hard brush|
|Wiping string in action|
|Panel complete - so much better!|
|Closer up again, was glad to have managed to keep the fastening metal as I think it works as a good contrast|
|Second second to be tackled|
|Second section complete!|
After the best part of 2 cans of paint and several hours of work I have now painted the most important parts which I wanted to achieve in order to set up our new raised veg bed.I have tasked Mr P with doing the rest ;) - night all.
