Garden furniture makeover

Adding colour to the garden does not always have to mean planting flowers. Metal paint can also liven up plain garden furniture and pots.

  • Remove all loose rust and flaking paint from the table and chairs using a wire brush.
  • For previously painted furniture, wash down thoroughly with diluted detergent, rinse with clean water and allow to dry. Apply as small test patch of Hammerite Direct to Rust Metal Paint in Smooth finish to the painted surface to ensure compatibility. Any reaction will occur within an hour. If a reaction is evident, remove all paint then wash down with degreaser. Rinse with clean water and allow to dry.
  • For smooth metal surfaces, lightly abrade for maximum adhesion.
