Stepping Stone / July 5, 2018 / Christine
To bring more pizzazz to an otherwise bland garden why not add a couple of garden stepping stones? You have got to admit we all have felt the need to improve the look of our home. The garden not exempted. An easy way to bring life and add a landscaping feel would be to install decorative garden stepping stones. Great news though garden stepping stones are fairly easy to make. Materials arent hard to find. And to top it all off this home project of yours can easily turn into a fun and exciting activity to do with the kids.
Materials tools and equipment needed: stepping stones wheelbarrow pea gravel sod cutter shovel rake steeltoed shoes work gloves. Work safe: Always wear work gloves and/or safety glasses when you should. When handling heavy materials lift with your legs not your back and remember to wear steeltoed shoes. Interior designers love to spruce things up and make them more attractive. Never let it be said that we stop with the inside of the house. It is approaching spring and time to give your outdoor space a little boost. We will talk about a two different outdoor wall art projects that are easy cost effective and make a big statement.
The last step is again sealing the entire piece of artwork with an outdoor water repellent product. You can use a high gloss or matt finish your choice. Apply your artwork to the wall or fence with the appropriate screws or nails. If you dont want the screw heads to show put the piece up first and then paint it in place. Another option I love for outside use is painting concrete stepping stones. They come in all shapes and sizes in your local hardware store garden area. This is a great time of year to do this project because it will be ready for the spring.
