Mini Makeovers

Mini MakeoversA couple of years ago I painted up two small wooden planters and a mini-greenhouse with two new shades from the Royal wood stain range.

This year I wanted to sow seedlings to over-winter for early planting out as soon as the frost disappears in spring. Sweet pea seeds were sown in the Royal Exterior Lime Green and Warm Clay planters, with Nigella and Foxgloves being sown in the Warm Clay mini-greenhouse.

Sitting happily on windowsills the planters bring much needed winter colour and provide the perfect growing spots for healthy seedlings.

An old wooden star mobile was also given a new lease of life with Royal Exterior in Midnight Blue. I lightly sanded it to remove dirt and algae but the old and faded coating on the faces was harder to remove so I just painted over it!
