How to create a cocktail bench
Give your garden bench a dash of sundowner style with a striped 'dusk' effect. Paint two wooden slats at a time in the same Cuprinol Garden Shades colour, moving from light to dark as you work your way from the top of the bench to the bottom. Then find a south-facing spot in the garden and position your perch towards the setting sun. Cocktail hour, anyone?
