Had a spare sheet of MDF left over from a job, was thinking what to do with it ! also had a spot in the backyard that needed a bit of a lift , so I grabbed that sheet of MDF and got to work painting it !!
I primed it first with Art Gesso , then painted in Arylic water base, i then sealed it with with Gloss Laquere !
really happy with the result , seems to draw your eye straight to it !!! I made the purple Pots on far side’s of picture 3 , I will take detailed photo’s of them and add another blog !!
Thanks for dropping by for a look.

but not sure its the right place for it , just my meaning
I just think it work better in picture one
and I dont think the MDF will hold up to the wether

Well thats different. Might look good all along the fence, either in one piece or in panels that size as and when you did them
