We have been slowly transforming our courtyard since moving into our Victorian inner-city home. The previous owners kindly left us a cheap and nasty shed in the left corner of the space. In phase one of our courtyard makeover, we removed the shed, purchased a spray gun and spray painted the fence in Dulux Domino, a dark grey with cool undertones.
The first coat took us around one hour in prep time using Cabot's Deck Clean, plus two hours to spray paint. The following day, my husband painted the second coat in just one hour. He watered the paint down a little more for the second coat, which worked a treat.
I cannot rave about using a spray gun enough. It saved us hours and hours of paint time, and there was practically no mess to clean up. Just ensure that you soak the spray gun afterwards so it doesn't get clogged.
