Painted garden bench
by Annie Sloan
Annie painted this bench for her garden in Oxford. She simply used Chalk Paint® and Lacquer – both on the wood and metal.
This garden bench lives in Annie’s garden in Oxford. She painted in Chalk Paint®, using Louis Blue on the wooden slats and Old White on the metal frame. She sanded it back a little for the distressed, weathered look.
When using Chalk Paint® outdoors always finish with Chalk Paint® Lacquer. Our Lacquer is UV protective, so colours won’t fade in the sun, and is water resistant. See more advice from Annie on using Chalk Paint® in your garden from Annie here.
