Rusted Garden Finial - Make this with one old lamp base, one wooden finial from big box store and textured spray paint.

Spotted this in one of the many tiny backstreets in Mousehole, Cornwall. A very rustic garden set-up with weathered ornaments, tools, tables and chairs - but it fitted the character of the place

Metal Protector

Shine up your metal lawn furniture with carnauba paste wax made for cars.Once a year, apply an even coat with a damp terry towel, let dry, lightly buff with a soft cotton rag. Wax repels water, prevents rust, and restores luster to dull paint.

Serene setting. Lots of green in large pots, old table and mis-matched seating. The use of gravel really keeps the expense down. Although the house is the real secret of this garden, the patio design itself would be fairly easy to duplicate.
