What springs to mind when deciding upon a practical piece of garden furniture that’s also a conversation starter? A shabby chic plant potting station of course!

An Essex garden-fanatic built this plant potting station by hand and then painted it with garden furniture paint.

Our paint can be used directly on bare or painted wood, brick, stone, plaster, metal and plastic.

So you aren’t just limited to deck chairs and tables, you can paint just about anything in your garden – including your plant potting station.
