Step 2 Use two clamps to hold the wood together, with the shorter length on the bottom and the longer length standing up. Pre-drill two holes for the screws. Make sure you use a countersink so that the screws sit flush with the wood.
Step 3 Prime the wood with a coat of Resene Quick Dry waterborne primer undercoat.
Step 4 Paint the wood with Resene Coast in two coats, waiting for the first coat to dry before applying the second coat.
Step 5 Use a saw to cut the driftwood into short lengths that range from approximately 55mm to 170mm. Make sure that the cut ends are flat so that the wood will stand upright on its cut end.
Step 6 Divide the driftwood into six groups. Paint the remaining pieces using Resene testpots in your choice of colours – Fleur used Resene Bowie, Resene Torea Bay, Resene Cleopatra, Resene Smitten and Resene Green House. You may also choose to leave some pieces of driftwood unpainted as Fleur did.
