BEFORE

Is your patio lacking privacy? Elevate your outdoor space with a painted outdoor privacy screen.

  1. Begin by applying a coat of paint primer to your privacy screen. Set up in a well-ventilated area and cover your work space with a drop cloth or Kraft paper. Shake the can of Zinsser®Bulls Eye 1-2-3 Primer vigorously for one minute after the mixing ball begins to rattle. Hold the primer spray can upright 18-24" from the surface and keep the can in motion as you spray, using even strokes. Slightly overlap each stroke for the best coverage. 
  2. Following the directions on the can, apply Rust-Oleum®Stops Rust®Turbo Gloss Protective Enamel and let the spray paint dry for 2-4 hours before handling and 24 hours before full use.
  3. For additional protection, topcoat with Rust-Oleum®Stops Rust®Turbo Clear Enamel within 1 hour or after 48 hours after applying the spray paint.
