How Do I Paint My Wooden Garden Furniture?
No matter how big or small your outdoor space is, an easy transformation or clever refresh can be achieved by simply painting your garden furniture. Have a few tired looking wooden chairs? It’s time to revive them
Step 1 Using a sanding block, sand around the surfaces of your wooden furniture. Make sure all the surfaces are dry, free from dirt, and that any previously treated wood is stripped back.
Step 2 Dust off all your newly sanded surfaces using a dusting brush.
Step 3 Prime with Ultra Primer, tinted to the same colour as your topcoat if possible
Step 4 Apply the topcoat. Using your paintbrush start applying the colour evenly along the grain of the wood. We recommend choosing from one of the following in our range:
Step 5 After completing the first coat, leave it to dry in accordance with the datasheet before applying a second coat.
