The three simple steps to painting your garden fence


Posted 24th Jul 2018

Is your garden fence looking a bit sorry for itself? Well, this simple guide will explain how you can transform it - and the best bit? It's super easy!

You will need

2.5L of Cuprinol Garden Shades in your favourite colour
Roller and tray
Or Cuprinol Spray and Brush equipment or 1 x 2" paintbrush and roller

Directions

Tip: it's worth checking with your neighbour first, just to make sure they don't mind.

1 Brush off loose dirt and protect the surrounding area with a plastic dust sheet.

2 Use a roller to paint all the flat surfaces and a brush for the edges and more fiddly bits.

3 Allow to dry thoroughly before applying a second coat.

OR

1 Fill up your Spray & Brush with your favourite Cuprinol Garden Shades colour and pump the handle up and down to create the right amount of pressure.

2 Use the sprayer to apply paint from the top down in a horizontal motion.

3 Use the brush to work the paint into trickier spots.

Tip: Don't spray all the way to the top - you may end up with an angry neighbour covered in paint! Instead, paint the top using the brush part of the sprayer.
