Customised Garden Lanterns

I was recently given some garden lanterns by a friend who had not got around to doing anything with them, these were plain brown ones originally from Ikea.

I decided to make them tie in with my garden cushions.

I used Acrylic paint and mixed the blue to match (ensuring I mixed plenty so didn’t run out half way through as I would have never managed to make the same colour twice!)

I then decided to paint the inside in white for a contrast (defiantly got as much paint on me as I did the Lanterns).

After a couple of coats and then a wet wipe to remove all the paint I got on the glass- it created a quick easy transformation and they look great.
