Every year we have a garden project planned. Last year’s was a big one, we re designed the lower patio area Marc laid a new patio and took down a tree. This year it was a much smaller one… I encourage and applaud creativity of any kind, it doesn’t have to be perfect, nothing is perfect! It should be fun and stress free. We are a very creative family and as such we are always dreaming up new ideas (believe me we have lots of them) some are crazy, most are put into practice and all are considered. My latest idea was to stencil the shed and the garden table…
…if the worst comes to the worst and nobody likes it, we can always paint over it!
We had previously stenciled the shed
I have already written about my Banksy stencil, a small and quiet idea compared to the huge stencil we used on the other side of the shed and the garden table. If the worst comes to the worst and nobody likes it, you can always paint over it! I believe in giving it a go, live a little after all, it is not the end of the world if the lines are wonky…

Last year we inherited some old furniture.It was not our style and we intended to sell it, then forgot all about it.
This spring I realised we needed a larger garden table and I remembered the old table we had stored away. Marc hauled it out and after a good clean and some sanding I slapped on some old grey leftover paint. It wasn’t enough, it needed more personality, so we stenciled it job done!

The results: taadaaah!
Nothing was left un stenciled, its addictive!
