The Annual paint
We would recommend that you repaint your dovecote annually, preferably in the spring months when the weather isn’t too warm or too cold.
Before you start, ensure the areas you are applying paint is clean. Some areas may need sanding down, do so with soft sandpaper and brush off any dust.
If the sanding has reached the raw wood, reapply farrow and ball undercoat. Allow around 4 hours for the undercoat to dry and then continue to paint in the farrow and ball colour of your choice.
