Remove Existing Finish

Add New Finish

Pour primer into paint pan liner, then use a paint roller to apply a single coat of primer to piece. Paint any remaining areas with one-inch-angled paint brush. Let dry. Replace paint pan with new liner, then pour porch and deck paint into pan. Use a paint roller to apply two even coats. Let dry. Replace paint pan with new liner, then pour floor sealer into the new liner. Use paint roller to apply a single coat. Tip: Keep paint brush nearby to brush out any air bubbles.
