A Guide to Transforming Your Outdoor Building: Tips from Rowdy Hog Smokin BBQ

Are you looking to give your outdoor building a fresh new look? Look no further! In this guide, we will walk you through the process of painting your outdoor building using the finest paint tools available. Whether it’s a chicken coop, a shed, or any other structure on your property, we’ve got you covered.

Make a Plan and Gather Your Tools

Before you start painting, it’s essential to plan ahead and gather the necessary tools. Check the weather forecast and choose a time when there’s no rain in sight. Ideally, the temperature should be between 50 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit for optimal painting conditions.

Clear the area around the building, moving any furniture or items that might hinder your painting process. Prepping the building is crucial—remove any loose paint or debris using a wire brush, and if needed, sand it down to create a smooth surface. Wipe away any dust with a damp cloth.

The Right Paint Tools for the Job

Investing in high-quality paint tools is vital to achieving professional-looking results. At Rowdy Hog Smokin BBQ, we recommend using Purdy paint tools for your outdoor painting projects. Purdy’s NEST™ paint tray, Purdy Pail, Purdy Chinex Elite Brush, Purdy Marathon Roller Cover, and Purdy 9″ Roller Frame are excellent choices.

Choose the Right Paint for Your Building

Selecting the right paint for your outdoor building is crucial. For wood buildings, choose a paint designed for exterior use. If you’re painting a metal building, opt for a rust-resistant paint. Vinyl buildings require a paint specifically formulated for vinyl surfaces.

In our chicken coop transformation, we chose the HGTV Home by Sherwin Williams Everlast brand in the color Ebony Fields (satin finish). This paint provides all-weather protection in just one coat, making it perfect for our outdoor building.

Time to Paint

If you’re not using a paint and primer in one, start by priming the building and follow with one or two coats of paint. Ensure each coat is dry before applying the next one. Use a Purdy Marathon roller cover with a ½” nap for smooth to semi-rough surfaces. The roller’s superior paint-holding capacity will make your job easier and ensure an even finish.

For hard-to-reach areas and precise work, use the Purdy Chinex Elite angled brush. Its exceptional paint-holding capacity and smooth application will ensure a professional-looking result.

Additional Tips for a Successful Paint Job

Here are some additional tips to help you achieve the best outcome:

  • Apply paint following the direction of the wood grain.
  • Allow each coat of paint to dry completely before applying the next coat.
  • Paint in the shade to prevent the paint from drying too quickly.
  • Clean up any spills or drips immediately.

Transform Your Outdoor Building

Once the paint has dried, step back and admire your transformed outdoor building. Consider adding some landscaping around the front to enhance its visual appeal. At Rowdy Hog Smokin BBQ, we believe that even a chicken coop should look inviting and beautiful!

Remember, outdoor buildings provide functional spaces, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be aesthetically pleasing. Take the time to add personal touches and make it your own. With a little effort and the right tools, you can turn any outdoor building into a stunning feature on your property.
