It’s easy to freshen up a stucco veranda with a little bit of help from Resene.
Room for improvement with Mark Rayner - Project 02
Difficulty level: Moderate
|Ceiling:||Tongue and groove previously painted with waterborne satin paint|
|Woodwork:||Previously painted with waterborne semi-gloss paint|
|Walls:||Stucco previously painted with waterborne satin paint|
You will need: Bucket, clean cloths, drop cloth, garden hose with clean running water, paintbrushes, paint roller and tray, paint stirrers, Resene AquaShield tinted to Resene Pipi, Resene Lumbersider tinted to Resene Half Alabaster and Resene Burnt Crimson, Resene Lustacryl tinted to Resene Half Alabaster, Resene Moss & Mould Killer, Resene Paint Prep and Housewash, rubber gloves, sandpaper, stiff-bristled brush.
Handy hints: Make sure you choose the correct roller sleeve for each painting job – textured surfaces such as tongue and groove and stucco will require a different roller sleeve to smooth walls. If in doubt, ask your local Resene Color Shop expert. Because stucco is so heavily textured it has a greater surface area than a flat wall so take this into account when estimating the amount of paint required.
Top tip: When painting an exterior area, avoid working in strong wind or direct sunlight as this may cause paint to dry too quickly. In hot weather it may be necessary to use Resene Hot Weather Additive to slow the drying.
Other ideas: For a fresh coastal look consider a combination of cool pastel greens or blues.
