Painted patio

It’s easy to revamp an old painted patio with a little bit of help from Resene.

Painted patio

Weekend DIY with Mark Rayner - Project 55

Difficulty level: Moderate

You will need: Bucket, concrete patio area (previously painted with waterborne paving paint), garden hose with clean running water, paintbrush, paint stirrer, paint tray and roller, Resene Moss & Mould Killer, Resene Non-Skid Deck & Path tinted to Resene Off Piste, Resene Paint Prep and Housewash, rubber gloves, stiff-bristled brush.

To get the look: Mark painted the background wall with Resene Lumbersider tinted to Resene Pale Prim.

Other ideas: For a darker grey effect, paint the patio area with Resene Non-Skid Deck and Path tinted to Resene Traffic.

Top tip: Non-skid finishes will trap more dirt than smooth finishes. Use Resene Paint Prep and Housewash to wash the surface as needed to keep it looking good.
