Make a Splash with Your Outdoor Décor
(CLEVELAND, OH — June 1, 2009) Chances are your deck or patio furniture has become weathered or even rusted from summer sun and winter storage. But armed with a little creativity and a few cans of spray paint, you can give your backyard oasis a fresh and affordable new look so you're ready for a summer of great grilling, entertaining, and relaxed living.
For only a few dollars a can, Krylon® offers spray finishes that combine sophisticated good looks with rugged durability to make patio, porch, deck and sunroom makeovers easy – so easy that you can even spray directly over rusted metal.
Instead of scrubbing away with a wire brush, paint right over rust using Krylon Outdoor Spaces® Rust Converter. It chemically transforms rust into a waterproof, paintable surface that is protected from future rust formation. When completely dry, topcoat with any Outdoor Spaces® Satin, Metallic, Textured or Hammered Finish. In 2009, five new Outdoor Spaces Satin colours, Iris, Fern, Khaki, Bark and Boulder, join a wide range of contemporary colours already on store shelves.
Krylon's Outdoor Spaces spray finishes withstand harsh weather and offer superior protection on metal, wood, wicker, drywall, masonry and even pottery. Exciting colours and progressive textures let you express your personal style. Krylon Outdoor Spaces spray finishes are available at local hardware, home centre and craft stores.
When decorating outdoors:
•Use colour to unify your space. By carefully selecting a coordinated palette of a few colours, you can unify an eclectic collection into a pleasing whole. White is an ever-popular classic that can be paired with almost any accent colour for striking good looks.
•Especially in areas filled with bright sunlight, don't be afraid of bold or saturated colours. Use bright, bold colours to infuse a space with energy and whimsy, or consider sophisticated textured or metallic hues.
•For the brightest, boldest colours, prime the surface or apply a white basecoat. Next, apply the colour coat over the white surface.
•Group furniture together to create intimate conversation areas. Use interesting containers to hold plants. Consider lighting for both evening safety and ambiance.
•Always follow the directions on your can of spray paint.
