You Say You Want A Revolution – Creating The Perfect Outdoor Space

img1Outdoor spaces can be just as comfortable as indoor spaces; they just require a little TLC to keep them from becoming drab and outdated. But if the thought of giving your outdoor area a makeover is a little daunting, don’t fret! With just a few coats of paint, you can transform your outdoor space into your favourite “room” in the house.

Outdoor Chairs and Tables – designer outdoor dining sets can cost thousands, but with new multi-hued, textured spray paints, it’s easy to give your old set a rich contemporary look.

Planter Boxes and Plant Pots – flowering plants in stylish plant pots or planter boxes can add colour and interest to any outdoor space. Transform an inexpensive planter box or plant pot with terra cotta spray paint, or spray paint a simple planter or pot with a hot new shade to add a splash of colour to your outdoor space.

Feature Walls – who said feature walls were only for the indoors? Talk to Qpaint about painting a prominent wall a striking colour. This will immediately give your outdoor space the kick of colour it needs to brighten it up.

Accent, Accent, Accent – Accent pieces make a house a home, so why not accent outdoor spaces, too? Turn ordinary metal trellis into an outdoor wall décor with a fresh coat of paint or a climbing vine. Paint simple lanterns or table accents vibrant colours to add drama to your outdoor area.

Barbecues – If your barbecue looks a little worse for wear, make it shine like new again with a fresh coat of paint. Paint the outside with a heat resistant paint designed for barbecues. Most barbecue paints are black or silver, but if you shop around for some bright colours, you can make a bold statement by painting your old barbie a vibrant new colour.
