Garden Looking Dull? Just Paint It
Whether the lack of rain has left your garden looking dull, or if you're overrun with weeds -- stop hating and start painting.
This project was inspired by Kim Kardashian's newly redecorated enchanted forest-style bathroom.
The spectacular flowers were installed by Mark's Garden, a Los Angeles-based luxury floral designer. The bathroom redesign was reportedly a gift from Kardashian's husband Kanye West, after the sale of 20% of her company, KKW Beauty, to Coty in a deal that puts her company's value at over $1 billion.
So I have a wild area in my backyard that's a mix of ferns, wildflowers and weeds. Rather than try to keep the weeds at bay, or trim out all the dull dry plants, I decided to embrace them.
All I needed were a few cans of floral spray paint that I ordered from Amazon. It's safe to use on fresh flowers and plants, and can be a fun way to create your own backyard enchanted garden.

So if the recent hot weather and lack of rain has your plants looking more like hay instead of heyyyyyy, or if you're looking to create a special backyard space, give painting them a shot.
I used five colors to complete the looks in my garden, a dark purple, light purple, bold orange, silver and gold.
Be sure you're using floral spray paint -- regular paint will kill your plants.
