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.
A stepping stone in your garden or backyard will give an elegant look to it can lead from one place to the other in the garden itself or lead from the front of the house to the rear and garden. These stones can be almost any durable strong material you choose you will need to think about the material carefully and make some decisions about what kind of care and maintenance you will need to put in how much effort in placing the stepping stones you are willing to spend and very basically how much are you thinking of putting into this home improvement task.
Decoration for these stones is limited only by your imagination. From a simple hand or paw print (name and date optional) up to a recreation of your favorite piece of art made out of shattered teacups your inner artist can run wild. Even photographs can be used simply put it between 2 sheets of glass and seal the edges with silicone. When using glass as decoration for your stones it is best to place the glass in the container first laying it out as you wish it to be in the finished product then carefully pour the concrete over it; this way there will be no sharp exposed areas.
