This easy outdoor fountain update idea is a great weekend project. Change the look with these great products from the craft & hardware store.
I love the sound of water and purchased a wall fountain many years ago from Lamps Plus for my little porch. I thought it was a soothing way to welcome guests or sit outside and visit with my wonderful neighbors. Time went by and the fountain became tired and needed a refresh. How did I make this little easy outdoor fountain update happen? Read on and I will show you how!
Here’s the way the fountain looked originally –
The hard water started to create a patina that I liked but then the sun really faded the fountain. So, I decided to use my DecoArt Renaissance Brown Paint as a base and DecoArt Bright Copper for the top layer. Loved it and it lasted for several more years until it didn’t.
Now, the fountain is sporting a new look for the new house. To create this outdoor fountain update, I had to sand down the old copper color a bit so the new paint could grip.
Love love LOVE this product! This is my favorite finish on my fountain. This stone textured spray paint really upgraded my wall fountain. I chose to use Caribbean sand color. You will need a few cans of this paint product to get the coverage to create the stone effect.
