Level Up Your Garden
Want more privacy in your garden? With just a bit of color and creativity, this plain privacy screen can transform into charming additions to your garden decor. Using Montana GOLD spray cans and a few other materials, you can create customized and beautiful garden furniture. Just imagine — instead of clean white, you’ll be eager to display this vibrant protection from sun and views! So let’s get started on this delightful project.
Here’s what you need to prepare before you start:
- Privacy screen
- Montana GOLD spray cans in colors of your choice (we recommend using three shades of each color for depth and contrast)
- Montana Universal PRIMER
- Montana GOLD Shock White (optional, for extra longevity)
- Montana Flatjet cap medium
- Montana VARNISH Spray Gloss
- Drop sheet
- Protective mask
Before we get spraying, you’ll need to prepare your privacy screen and workspace. Place your drop sheet in a well-ventilated area to protect your surroundings from spray mist. Remember to put on your mask and gloves to protect yourself.
Now, let’s dive into the project.
Step 1: Priming
Start with a clean, dry surface. Apply a coat of Montana Universal PRIMER to the area. This step ensures a smooth, uniform surface for the Montana GOLD colors to adhere to. Make sure you spray evenly across the area and let it dry completely before proceeding.
Step 2: Adding Color
Now comes the fun part! Choose your preferred Montana GOLD colors and shake the can well before use, best to turn it upside down. Using the Montana Flatjet cap medium, spray your first color onto the area. Spray lightly and evenly from about 15-20cm away. Let the first color dry before applying the next one.
To create depth and contrast, use three shades of each color. Start with the darkest shade and finish with the lightest. Remember to let each color dry before adding the next one.
Step 3: Sealing the paint
Once you’re satisfied with your color application and the privacy screen is fully dry, it’s time to seal the paint with Montana VARNISH Spray Gloss. This not only adds a glossy finish but also provides extra protection, making your privacy screen more durable and easier to clean.
Voila! You’ve successfully transformed an ordinary white portable privacy screen for your garden into a vibrant piece of decor. This colorful piece can brighten up any space, adding a pop of color and serving as functional protection from the sun and neighbors.
Whether you’re an expert DIY-er or a crafty beginner, this project is a fun, simple way to create eye-catching decor. The only limit is your creativity, so feel free to experiment with colors and techniques.
Remember to allow for drying time in between each step and always prioritize safety when working with spray paints.
