Magenta Porch Swing After

Pride shines through when you spray paint a swing for your sun porch or sunroom in a bright, bold color like Magenta. Bring a summery look to your space with Rust-Oleum spray paint. 

Make sure your swing is clean and dry before painting.

Remove hardware, if possible, or use painter's tape to cover any spots you don't want to paint.

A coat of 2X Ultra Cover Primer in White provides a great base for your color and gives you a longer lasting finish. Place your swing on a drop cloth. Spray on the primer according to the directions on the can. After 20 minutes, start spraying Satin Magenta over the primer in several light coats for best coverage. Let the first coat dry for at least 20 minutes before applying a second.

Let all paint dry for an hour before handling and 24 hours before hanging the swing for use.
