The Courtyard/ Garden transformation ~ part 2


For those of you, who arent aware of whats going on, please view my first post on the Courtyard/Garden transformation ~ 1

One of the first things that I had bought for the courtyard were these very cute wall mounting terracotta half pots. 6 years later, not only have they aged but the color has turned really pale and ugly.  So naturally, that was on top of the to do list.

Unfortunately these pots are mounted in such a way, that they cannot be removed for cleaning purposes, hence I had to manage painting them while they were mounted which seems like quite a challenge. Therefore, I’ll just have to give myself that much leavage for the marks spread on the side 😦

The next project was this bench that I have had for a couple of years which has also borne the brunt of the heat and weather. I have been so inspired by all the coastal & shabby chic look these days, that I decided to paint it white. It isnt perfect by any measure but I love the new look of the bench. So inviting and ideal of an afternoon tea !

The bench was moved from the old location, closer to the entrance and the area behind it with the wire rack where we previously had wine leaves spirally and which later turned into a junk magnet  ~~~ was finally cleared !!!

Although it seems the progress is very slow, it is really a lot of hard work and I just know, its going to be worth it. Inshallah. There are many more projects at hand, so I’m just going to link this post to the following parties now :-

  1. Hi Naush the bench looks stunning in white and a little hint i would have painted the terracotta pots white with the wall !!! been better for the plants in them too as they would reflect the heat from the roots and no splashes of paint on the wall har har but looking good take care Luv Sue x

  2. Naush,

    Thank you for being a part of making last week’s “A Little Birdie Told Me…” at Rook No. 17 so rich in creativity and inspiration! Today’s party is in full swing, so please feel welcome to drop by and share your talent.
