There is nothing more I love than having a little project on the go…and thankfully my Dad is always on hand to help bring the crazy ideas to reality! Ronseal got in touch and challenged us to create something for Winter using some products from their range. I’ve had some wooden Christmas trees pinned on my Pinterest board for quite some time and now was the perfect opportunity to get them one out of my phone and into Rose Cottage!
When planning the project I knew I would be using both wood and metal, so chose the Ronseal stays white 2 in 1 primer and paint in gloss pure brilliant white. This paint is super easy to use as you don’t need a separate primer and only 1 coat is required. It’s also drip resistant so is quick to apply.
Here’s what we used:
1 tin of Ronseal stays white 2 in 1 primer and paint in gloss pure brilliant white
4 lengths of wood
Metal tree stand
Baubles and fishing wire to decorate
Firstly we cut the wood to size. The larger triangle is 5ft by 3ft and the smaller triangle is 4.5ft by 2.5ft.
Then screwed them together into 2 separate triangle shapes.
I painted the metal base and wooden triangles with the Ronseal paint which glided onto both surfaces like a total dream! I used an old rag to rub a little bit of the paint off to give a more white washed look.
We then assembled the trees, screwing them on the base log using a small wooden slice to separate the triangles; Then set it into the metal base.
I dressed the wooden tree using some glass baubles hung with fishing wire.
We couldn’t be happier with how it turned out and spending time with Dad to complete it was just lovely!
What projects have you been up to over the festive period? I’d love to hear them and give Dad something else to add to the ever growing list of Rose Cottage jobs!!!
Hope you enjoyed reading, as much as I enjoyed writing!
