Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @Heather5. It's fantastic to have you join us and many thanks for your question.
Can I please confirm that you wish to paint your deck with coloured paint and not stain and preserve it with oil? The term "paint" is sometimes used interchangeably.
If you do in fact want to oil the deck, you should find this step-by-step guide helpful: How To Oil Your Deck.
Please let me know if you need further information or had questions about the process.
I'm using Cabot's Deck Stain and I wanted to know what is best to use to paint a deck, eg. brush, broom? However, I looked up Bunnings and found a broom which would get between the gaps. I've just bought one and hope this works for me
Thanks for your reply.
Thanks to Mitchell for all his advice. I bought the deck broom and painted two coats of Deck Stain. It did paint the gaps between the boards quite well. As Mitchell said, the Broom probably wouldn't hold enough paint so I bought the Deck Oil & Deck Stain soft applicator. I did the third coat with this and it worked well.
Many thanks for all the advice.
I'm sure the community would love to see your results if you'd like to share them with us.
