GIVE IT A SPRAY Upcycle quirky objects, like this old birdcage, by spray painting them in gelato colours, and hanging from wall brackets. REVIVE OLD SEATING Freshen up old timber furniture, like this school bench, with a fresh coat of paint in a semigloss finish. GO POTTY Repaint a few old terracotta pots in bright colours. First apply an undercoat, then follow with one or two coats of low-sheen outdoor acrylic paint. DECK
THE WALLS Break up large expanses of bare masonry with a collection of wall pots, planted with trailing foliage.
