Before & After: Garden Ornament

before and after garden ornament makeover

I love the ingenuity behind this, even if I don’t completely adore the result.  I would use an object with a bit more drama (fatter, bigger, more strange…something) and I think I would have used a different shade of the stone spray, or perhaps even the antique bronze that I used a couple years ago when I repaired a few old door knobs in my house.  But the idea of adding finials to objects with good shape and giving a spray paint makeover is definitely a good one.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
