Choosing the right paint colour for your garden

Similar to interior decorating, if you’re working with a small space you may want to opt for a lighter shade like white, light grey or cream. This gives the illusion of a bigger, brighter space.

On the other hand, if you don’t have grass in your garden and you’re looking for something to brighten the space up, a shade like apple green or petal yellow will give your garden furniture a new lease of life!

Achieving the perfect paint finish

The secret to a perfect finish on your garden furniture is in the prep!

Although our thick, creamy paint doesn’t require a primer, it is recommended that you wipe the surface down with a damp cloth and then again with a dry cloth.

This ensures that all dust, dirt and grime is removed and you’re left with a smooth surface to paint on.

Alternatively, if you are painting over a varnished or previously painted surface, we would recommend giving it a light sand all the way around as this will help the paint to adhere.

 

Getting started with our garden paint

Just like our interior chalk paint, you only need to follow a few simple steps.

First, stir the pot thoroughly to ensure all pigment is properly mixed.

Wipe your surface down to remove dust and dirt.

Using a paint brush, glide a thin layer of the paint on, using a back and forth motion.

Wait 1 hour until the paint is touch dry for the second coat and another hour after that if a third coat is required.

Finally, leave for 3-4 hours for paint to fully dry and harden.

Protecting your masterpiece

Did you know that we also supply protective furniture wax?

A light layer will prevent unwanted scratches and chips from little knocks and bumps (or prints from grubby fingers!).

Simply rub a small amount into the paintwork in gentle, circular motions with a soft cloth!

Alternatively, for furniture or items that may receive more exposure to the elements, try our heavier-duty sealant. A liquid top coat that is water resistant and prolongs the vibrancy of the paint when exposed to the sun’s UV rays.
