Mark Rayner creates a stylish metallic-effect window box.
You will need: 22mm treated ply cut into:
Also required: A hammer, 40mm jolthead galvanised nails, drill with large drill bit, paintbrushes, small paint tray and roller, sandpaper, saw, pencil and exterior PVA glue. Resene Quick Dry undercoat, Resene Lumbersider tinted to Resene Astronaut, Resene Enamacryl Metallic tinted to Resene Time Warp and Resene Concrete Clear.
Top tip: To prevent painted ply coming in direct contact with potting mix, place pots in the window box or line with heavy plastic, making sure you cut drainage holes.
Apply one coat of Resene Quick Dry primer undercoat to all surfaces of the window box and leave to dry for one hour.
Apply two coats of Resene Astronaut to all surfaces of the window box, leaving two hours for each coat to dry.
With the small roller and tray apply two coats of Resene Time Warp to the outside and top edges of the window box. Allow two hours for each coat to dry.
