Rust-Oleum's Guide To Personalising Your Garden

Rust-Oleum's Guide To Personalising Your Garden

A new home offers the perfect opportunity to add your own stamp and create a personalised space just for you.

However this doesn’t have to stay within the four walls, as your new garden also offers a blank canvas to work with.

With the warmer weather upon us, Rust-Oleum has put together some top tips on how to transform your outdoor space into a haven of style and creativity with just a few simple steps.

Garden Furniture 


Everyone dreams of a beautiful garden to relax in over the summer months, but sometimes furniture and garden accessories get a rough treatment outdoors. Contrary to popular belief, it doesn’t have to be the end of the road for garden items after a few months of neglect.

Whether it’s garden tables, chairs, plant pots, barbeques or chimineas, a quick spray or lick of paint can be applied year after year to hide a multitude of sins. Opt for bold bright colours to create a fun space to entertain and socialise or design a calming environment to relax in using soft elegant shades.

The Contemporary Garden Planter


Make greenery the star of the show and mount a pallet planter on a garden wall or fence. As the seasons change and your herb harvest follows suit, stay organised with some chalkboard paint and simply wipe away the old labels and start again.

Top Tip: Keep the planter close to the back door to avoid a soggy dash in the rain when you need to grab some fresh seasoning for dinner, but somewhere with sufficient sunlight.

The Pop up Palette Bar


Fit for a garden party or a laid-back BBQ, this upcycled pallet sidebar is an easy garden DIY hack. Whether you’re entertaining friends or enjoying an al fresco family gathering, it’s the perfect place to serve up a summer food and drink selection.  

To get the look simply attach two pallets together and cut down a piece of MDF to sit on top. Use paints or spray paints to create fun colour combinations that will keep your garden looking bright, even when the seasons turn grey.

Whatever your taste, make your back garden the envy of all of your neighbours and bring warm evenings in the garden alive.
