Prime Surface

Load primer into HVLP sprayer. With sprayer held six inches from surface, spray base coat with a controlled and steady motion. Allow over an hour for primer to fully dry.

Spray on Porch and Deck Paint

After base coat is dry to the touch, load porch and deck paint into HVLP sprayer. With sprayer held six inches from surface, spray finish coat with controlled, steady motion. Allow several hours for finish coat to dry. If coat appears uneven once dry, add a second coat of porch and deck paint to assure a professional finish.

Attach Doors and Hardware

Referring to numbered strips of painters' tape, re-attach each door front to its corresponding cabinet with a drill or screwdriver. Add new or existing hardware by screwing through pre-drilled holes.
