The good ol' Australian verandah - where we wile away our afternoons with a nice hot cup of tea. While we're experiencing the perfect conditions for outdoor painting, why not give it a revamp?
Here’s how to get the perfect look:
1) Gather inspiration
What do you want the final result to look like? Inspiration can come from anywhere. Try looking online and putting together a moodboard.
2) Select a colour scheme
Use colour schemes from your research, or book a FaceTime Colour Consult with our design consultant, Karen, for help. Then trial your scheme using sample pots and A4 swatches.
3. Get painting
Start by cutting in around the edges and hard to reach areas using Dulux Weathershield.
Apply paint to the surface using short, horizontal brush strokes.
Smooth over the wet painted section with long brush strokes. Do not reload the brush when you do this, a few strokes should be enough to smooth the surface.
Repeat this process for the second coat. Allow to dry, then give the surface a light sand with 400 grit sandpaper and repeat for a second coat.
If painting bare timber a third coat will need to be applied.
