Inset garden bench with mosaic pieces

Give your courtyard or small walled garden a hint of the theatrical twinned with urban roughness. Paint an ordinary garden seat black, then inset with mirrored and silver glittery mosaic pieces. Place it in a pretty spot for a contrast of opaque and transparent forms - a definite wow factor for a small courtyard! Just follow our easy step-by-step guide.

Step One
Prime and paint a garden bench black, using external paint.

Step Two
Mark around pieces of silver glitter mirror mosaic square, in a straight line on the arm, back and front sections of the garden bench with a pencil. 

Step Three
Then plunge cut using the Dremel 8200 multi-tool with router attachment, set to a depth slightly deeper than the depth of the piece of mosaic tile.

Step Four
Sand with the Dremel multi-tool and abrasive buffs. Use the Detailer's Grip to give you an easier hold.

Step Five
Then, inset silver glitter mosaic square or mirror diamond and stick into place using Dremel Glue Gun and 7mm clear glue. Fill around edges with multi-purpose filler slightly proud of the surface of the wood, then sand off excess filler using the abrasive buffs as above. Continue until pattern is finished. Paint in using black paint.

Add box spirals in tubs to your courtyard. Create the spiral shape by training box hedging around a steel rod placed in the centre of the tub and continually clip into shape with a shearer.
