What you need
Start by base painting the barrow. We painted the barrow and wiped off the excess paint to leave it with a light green stain.
Using the solid green base paint the grass areas.
Using a pencil draw out your design. We included the word WELCOME and also some small flowers.
Then simply paint in your designs. If you are having trouble with your flowers trace them from a garden book onto the barrow using graphite paper.
Once the barrow is finished seal it with a outdoor varnish.
Fill the barrow with soil and use it as a garden or use it to house potted plants.
