Alan Titchmarsh began his new primetime ITV1 series called “Spring into Summer” on Monday 5th April with Wayne Perrey as his resident DIY expert. So far Wayne has shown how to build an arbour and painted it in our Cavepool Grey Wood Paint which everyone fell for. It’s one of our favourite colours too with its pool-like intense blue-grey-green teal that ripples and changes colour depending on the light.
Wayne created a large seating area with decorative panelling and features from Wood U Bend, and finished it with hanging baskets complete with solar lights. It looked absolutely stunning and would be an item to be incredibly proud of in your garden. An area to relax and enjoy or entertain in.
Next he designed and built a garden bar designing it will features similar to the arbour and painting it in Cavepool Grey so it matched and created a sophisticated outside entertaining area. Wayne finished it off by applying gold leaf to the top of the bar and stools before painting with UV Clear to seal and protect the gold leaf.
On Monday 31st May Wayne will be completing the set by making an outside kitchen!
