Prominent Paints paving paint adds curb appeal

It has been over a year now since I laid new paving down when making changes to the front entrance at my house. Time to add a coat of paint to dress the bricks and add curb appeal. This was an easy project with Prominent Paints paving paint in Terracotta.

 

The entrance is close to my workshop where I do lots of painting and some of the paint dust has also spread onto the paving. The bricks are dull and desperately in need of a coat of paint. I have used Prominent Paints Paving paint for several outdoor projects, and will still be re-painting my driveway and outdoor patio before the spring rains arrive. 

Prominent Paints Paving paint, in your choice of colour

Paint roller, long pile

Extension rod

Paintbrush

Paint tray

OPTIONAL: Drill and paint stirrer

Preparation

Wash down the area to be painted to remove dust and debris. Allow this to dry.

Before you begin, use a paint stirrer or stick to thoroughly stir the paint.   

Start at a point where you won't work yourself into a corner. In this case I started at the end of the path, so that I could still walk through the front door. Make sure that everyone knows you are painting the area to prevent any mishaps.

After fitting an extension rod, I dipped the paint roller directly into the paint container and then spread this over the paving. Run the roller backwards and forwards to keep the pile fluffy and able to fill any small gaps or cracks.

Working in this way you can quickly apply the paint over uneven paving. Sometimes the paving may need a second coat, but I managed to get the job done with one coat of paving paint.

Use the paintbrush to paint around the edges, or any areas that can't be painted using the paint roller.

Immediately after finishing wash the paint roller, paintbrush and paint tray with warm water. Hang the paint roller and brush out to dry before using again.
