Dulux Paints say that a fresh coat of paint on your doors, windows and fences can be all your home needs to give it a new lease of life. In a world where first impressions are everything, the paint work on the exterior of your home can make a huge difference to its overall aesthetic. Giving your window frames and trim a fresh coat of paint requires minimum effort but provides maximum impact in consolidating the look of your home against the front door, foliage, outdoor furniture and the front fence.

  1. Gather your painting supplies: Dulux Aquanamel® in your chosen colour[s]; Dulux 1Step® Prep; drop sheet; high quality synthetic brush and paint pot; 400 grit sandpaper; painter’s tape; old cloths; Selleys Original Sugar Soap; and a flat paddle stirrer.
  2. As windows can get particularly dirty, thoroughly clean the surface using Selleys Original Sugar Soap; sand down the surface; and wipe with a damp cloth.
  3. Mask the wall around the frame[s]; then apply one coat of Dulux 1Step® Prep.
  4. Once dry apply Dulux Aquanamel® to the surface using short, horizontal brush strokes.
  5. Once you’ve completed an area, while the paint is still wet, lightly smooth over the painted section with long brush strokes. But don’t overdo or reload the brush; a few brush strokes will smooth the surface.
  6. Allow 2 hours to dry; then give the surface a light sand with 400 grit sandpaper.
  7. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for the second coat.
