balcony before (the window to the left is our living room)
So this was the lovely view of one half of our balcony.... yeah- kinda blah, I thought so too! It's long and skinny (about 1m wide by 6m long). Now, I have my lovely new trellis all set up in our seating area (soon to be hammock area- lazy summer Sunday's here I come,woohoo!). I left it the original stainless steel colour
to see it in situ before committing to painting because I am too impatient to wait until it is painted. But I still think I'm going to have to take it apart to spray it because I want it to have more impact.
I know that eventually it will be hidden by the plant, but I don't want it blending into the wall the rest of the year. I am thinking charcoal or black to go with the planters and contrast with the blah colour of the wall (not sure what colour it is supposed to be- I call it "Pollution Grey")- or maybe something more punchy like red, hmmmm... gotta think about this a bit more. Normally I'd paint the wall it sits on, but as this is a rental apartment and we are hoping to move out of soon (into a place of our own, woohoo!), I can't be bothered.
Now I just have to convince H that we need to make yet another run to the hardware store for metal paint...
