Upcycled Boiler House
So I’m posting the first of my many upcycled projects today. These projects mainly consist of old antique and solid wooden furniture that nobody wants anymore. Being a “sucker” for any under-dog ,YES even a sorry chest or forlorn sideboard I can’t resist the challenge to make it sparkle again.
This first upcycling post is not an “usual” one. What I mean to say is ,its not an old shabby object but in fact A WALL!!!!!!!!!!!!Yes I upcycled my boiler house side wall last summer.Ha ha! I was fed up watching the rainy rust marks form repeatedly again and again on the white paint that was already there.
I did my research on Pinterest and decided a “tree” of some kind best suited the space. I played around with ideas and then just “Let go” and my fingers did the rest.
For paint I visited the Paint and Decor Centre in Stillorgan. Its by far the best place for specialist paints. I needed exterior paint in vibrant colours and basic black.
The mural turned out to my liking and I now have an extended “Pink Theme” right through my garden. (Not for you guys who haven’t discovered your feminine side yet!!!) Its a great garden colour as is any vibrant hue . It warms the garden all year round with its cheery pink hue. There’s nothing nicer than a bright colour beaming from the bottom of your garden on a freezing wintery day.
It also deals with the summer problem of not being “green fingered” as it alone adds plenty of summer colour. Unfortunately I don’t have a “before” picture to show you as I hadn’t started my blog and didn’t see the need. I’ll be posting more pictures of the rest of my colour themed garden in a future post.
Hope you enjoy the pics and gain some inspiration of your own. Love Violinkit XXXXXXXX
