Make sure it’s a warm, dry day(above 10C) and that it’s not going rain. Whatever you’re painting needs to be clean and dry.
Garden furniture If your furniture has been left outside for a while or is already painted, it will need a good sand. This helps get rid of loose, flaking paint and any rough bits of wood. If your furniture is new, a light sand will get rid of any rough splinters. Put on a face mask so you don’t breathe in dust, Then give it a quick wipe with white spirit to remove any dirt or grease and left it dry
Sheds and fences

Painting. When painting wood, you need to brush in the direction of the wood grain. You’ll need to put on 3 coats, this will give you the best color and protection. When painting on smooth surfaces, lightly sand between the 2 nd and 3 rt coat. Leave 4 hours between each coat. If you get any paint on yourself, it will wash off with warm, soapy water .If you’ve been painting furniture, it’s best to leave it a day or two before using it
Scrape as much paint off your brush as you can. Than wash it out in warm, soapy water .Don’t empty any left over paints into drains or watercourses. Your local authority may have special ways to get rid of unused paints
