We have a south facing garden and this doesn't cause glare at all. The brick was treated with a water repellent sealant first and then the pieces glued on with waterproof No-Nails.

The Enchanted Forest wall mural is pasted onto moisture resistant mdf mounted the cabin wall. It's also coated with Polyvine; a protective decorators varnish.

The view towards the house. The patio doors are secured with doorstop magnets and a fly screen fitted to the frame that draws across like a roller blind from one side to the other. Not only does it stop the pesky midges but protects the carpet from sun bleaching

Obviously with a stone patio garden set we needed something more portable. With these we can seek the sun or shade

Believe me he earned it! Although it's a knack to get on and off. Although these are outdoor bean bags and will take a bit of moisture we needed somewhere to store them. We bought two bicycle hoists for the garage rafters; made a flat frame; wrapped them in an old quilt cover and hoisted them up into the garage eves and out of the way

The wall mural is not only a perfect back-drop to the cabin, but the garden as well
