These extra bright ideas will have your garden glowing

28 Feb 2019

With a few pebbles and some timber off-cuts, you can take these three DIYs outside to brighten up your yard.

Get your glow on

By day, this cute planter filled with succulents and pebbles looks lovely. But when the sun goes down, there’s an extra surprise in store. The pebbles start to glow, giving your outdoor space a bit of night-time magic.

The river stones were first painted in Resene Alabaster then finished in Resene FX Nightlight, which soaks up UV rays during the day and glows at night. Resene FX Nightlight can be used inside and out wherever you need a glow in the dark effect.

A colourful welcome

While you’re at the landscape supplies outlet, grab some more pebbles and make your own ombre-effect welcome mat. This one uses a summery palette of whites and yellows, and could easily be repainted to match the season – how about greens for spring and terracottas for winter?

The stones on this mat are painted in Resene Turbo, Resene Wild Thing, Resene Moonlight and Resene Alabaster. The deck is finished in Resene Woodsman Iroko stain, the succulent holder is painted in Resene Swiss Caramel and the doorstep is in Resene Sepia.

Stacks of fun

It’s the game that combines fun with strategic thinking – and this jumbo version of Jenga will take it to another level. This set is made using timber pieces finished in Resene Woodsman stains: Resene Pickled Bean, Resene Tamarind, Resene Grey Green and Resene Natural. Now get outside while the weather is still nice and get stacking!
