One of our favourite things in the world is visiting the coast and we try to as much as we can, but sometimes there’s too much to do here and a trip seems a bit tricky. We’ve been meaning to do up our garden room for a while – it’s right in my eye line when I look out the kitchen window, so at last we have combined our love of the seaside with some DIY and created our own little beach hut hideaway.
The exterior blue paint is ‘ Pure Duck Egg ‘ by the Homebase range of ‘ Home of Colour Garden Colour ‘ which I think is refreshing. What do you think ?
I covered some old deck chairs with some new canvas in bright stripes. It was really easy, especially as the material only had to be sewn to loop around little poles and not tacked in to them.
I painted the wooden interior and then we covered the floor to make it easy to clean with an oak effect vinyl . It came in plank style and feels very strong. It’ll be handy for wet feet after water fights and labrador paws.
The Drew Lacquer Table is by Habitat as is the bowl, I love the print and think I might invest in the collection more, it’s really reasonable .The cakes are a treat to ourselves for finishing the project finally !
The flowers are all from the garden – I found these retro style wall vases recently – they’re great for displaying a few at a time.
The decking came in tile form. My brother built it for us, we just used 6 which enough for us to be able to put the deck chairs on and even maybe have a little barbecue. I’ve put some lavender and other flowers on there too to add a little extra colour and nice aromas.
I hope you like our new rustic beach hut garden room ? Please do leave me a comment and let me know your thoughts. :) Would love to hear from you.
I feel quite proud that I did a lot of it myself. Especially as it is the summer hols ! It has given me confidence to try some more house projects.
You can find the paint, decking, Habitat items and some of the plant pots on the Homebase website.
