I recently revamped my secret garden. Updating the garden meant I needed to also fix up the garden gates. After 8 years of wear and tear, they looked a little sad. I used my Super Finish Max sprayer to re-stain them and I have one up for grabs today thanks to HomeRight who is sponsoring today’s post. It was pretty easy to refresh old garden gates!
The Gates Before
First I removed the hardware. They were still in good shape so I spray painted them black and they looked good as new.
I sanded the gates to remove and flakes of stain and to make it smooth.
Clean Them Up!
After I sanded both sides of the gates, I hosed them off to remove all the dust and dirt.
Time to Stain
I draped a plastic tarp over the fence and propped the gates up against it. I filled my Super Finish Max (affiliate) with Dark Walnut stain and sprayed them. When you are done, make sure to clean the sprayer with soap and water if it was a water based paint or stain and with mineral spirits if it was an oil based paint or stain.
After they dried, I added new knobs and with Shane’s help, I got them back up. If you missed the reveal of the Secret Garden with raised beds, you can check it out HERE.
I love how the dark brown looks against all the greenery.
