It’s May and the sun is beginning to make more and more appearances, so it’s definitely time to think about brightening up and bringing a new look to the garden. Think about current trends or colours that you’d like to incorporate into the garden and then you just need the paint and pots. 

Decorating cheap plastic or ceramic pots is an easy way to update the garden time and time again. 

Head to diy or craft stores for paint or spray suitable for outdoor use and explore Pinterest for pattern or colour ideas.

High street stores including Wilkos and any of the pound stores are great for getting basic plain pots and planters. For a better finish ensure cleaning the pots and a light sanding if old and tarnished to create the perfect base to design on. Set yourself up with outdoor primer, exterior sprays or paints and use a exterior varnish or lacquer to ensure a long lasting finish. Use masking tape or stencils to create modern designs with geometric influence, typography or embrace the popular dip/drop styles. And if you make a mistake it can simply be painted over.
