Brighten up your garden for summer

We love the hot new outdoor paint colours from Sadolin

Summer is just around the corner and long lazy months of alfresco dining and pottering about in the garden beckon. But how is your garden furniture looking after months of being lashed by winter rain and snow? If it’s looking a bit shabby why not treat it to a bold new makeover.

The pretty new woodstains from Sadolin come in a range of bright, summery colours from sea green to soft pink and are bound to cheer up any garden. We love the rich azure blue of this garden shed (pictured) which looks fresh and pretty when teamed with a string of bunting for country-style chic.

If you’re feeling timid why not start by adding a wash of summery colour to something small like a chair or planter. With names like Mary’s Watering Can and Harry’s Deck Chair they’re bound to raise a smile.
