Bird Houses and other garden ornaments

Enhance your garden with garden ornaments, especially those that can be painted. Some may be afraid to display things outside in rain and shine, but through my experience these painted items go a long way. This spade and watering can has been in my garden for 5years. The dust and rust makes it even more beautifully antiqued and distressed.
That just proves that the acrylic paint and varnish we use does last. However, you must ensure that the material used are those that can stand some time of rain and shine, like tin, aluminium, certain wood but definitely NEVER MDF. Those are strictly for indoors.
Of course there are certain things that will just wear off and destroyed after couple of years. then, paint yourself a new one!
