Ideas To Paint Wood Patio Furniture
Wood patio furniture – Like any outdoor wood fixtures, wooden garden furniture requires painting with exterior paint if you want the paint job to sustain inclement weather. While exterior painting only creates a more stable paint job, if you want to keep patio furniture looking for its best shape for longer, you may want to add a waterproof coating.
Generally transparent waterproof coatings protect the painting work without detracting from the appearance of the furniture. Fill all holes or cracks in wooden furniture before painting. Squeeze latex caulking into each hole or crack and spread caulking with a spatula until you feel even with, or slightly above, the surface of the wood.
Review the difficult moments of the wood of the patio furniture, and the areas filled with caulking, with medium grain sandpaper. Put the sandpaper in a sanding block and sand, along with the grain until the surface of the wood feels soft. Apply the recommended exterior primer for the type of paint that will be used. Apply the primer to the wooden patio furniture with a brush as the paint is applied, with long strokes with the grain of the wood. Allow the primer to dry completely before painting. Use an exterior paint that specifically states that it is intended to be used on wood. Paint the wooden furniture in long strokes with the grain as you applied the primer.
