The entire playhouse took only one coat which ended up being one can of black, two of blue and that leftover red. Hi Tiffanie, I only used one coat (can you believe it!?) I didn’t tape off the smaller areas-I actually used a piece of posterboard held in my left hand to cover them as I sprayed. Real Milk Paint with Outdoor Additive is suitable for exterior porous surfaces such as wood, concrete, brick and stucco. Should not be used over typical paints and requires removal as such. Tannin Stain Blocker – blocks stains from coming though the paint on woods such as cedar and knotty pine. AFM Hard Seal is a multi-use, clear gloss sealer especially formulated to provide mar resistance to both low and high porosity surfaces. Safecoat® MexeSeal is a very low VOC, low odor, water-based clear sealer for use on interior surfaces where a durable finish and superior protection are needed.
I just wanted to relay that we LOVE the AFM Safecoat sealer and what it has done to improve the aesthetics of our home. Thanks to your wonderful products and your team of experts, I can now live safely in my home! If you look at the spray paint cans they will say made for plastic or wood or metal or a variety of things. This is a quick and easy project to keep things looking nice without spending a whole lot or tossing in the landfill too soon.

I know a lot of people read my red front door posts (here, here, and here) so this will be a red front door extravaganza. I had no idea how, or even IF, this would work when I thought of it, so I was thrilled when it was an instant success, and I’m so excited to share it with you. I drew 3 rectangles in the snow to serve as canvases for the hooligans, and called them over. I tried my hand at it, and was surprised by how light of a touch was needed to keep the paint on the surface of the snow. The kids had already mastered the technique quickly, and they moved all around the yard and garden adding splashes of colour wherever they went. It was a wonderful way to get creative in the snow, and I suspect that painting the snow will become a regular winter activity around here!


I keep forgetting to buy spray bottles for snow painting, now we don’t even have to go to the store! Our snow is gone already, Lynne, and we now have lovely, colourful patches of grass where the painted snow was.
Tempera paints are actually non-toxic and one of the more environmentally friendly paints out there, which is one of the reasons that they’re popular paints for young children. Thank you for linking up to Tuesday Tots last week and just letting you know that I will be featuring this over on Rainy Day Mum this week. Thank you for sharing these amazing ideas they have helped me on so many frustrating and boring days!
You can also make a lot of types of paint with flour, water, cornstarch, and food colouring which would be more natural for the earth. I just picked up some plastic spray paint last week to try and redo the one I got at a yard sale last year.
It worked pretty well and the few areas I had overspray were easily touched up afterwards-that paint coverage is amazing.
I’ve got some plastic dog and cat food storage containers to paint so they blend in my kitchen better. It was just the Valspar Color Radiance, not the specific plastic paint and it worked perfectly!
Otherwise once you use the primer it doesn’t seem to matter what brand of paint you use over it. Adding Outdoor Additive makes Real Milk Paint superior for outdoor use. Outdoor Additive is a borate compound, similar to borax, is a safe, nontoxic additive.
Real Milk Paint with Outdoor Additive will not peel or blister, but act as a buffer between exposure and underlying paint.
While milk paint does work well outdoors as is, adding Outdoor Additive makes the paint even more superior and is one of the best wood finishing products that you can use. There is little or no smell upon application and I feel that most patients should do well with this product.
I was super excited when I found this DIY because every year it seems I have to replace my outdoor cushions because they get so faded and yucky looking from all the strong sun we get here (and probably the wind and rain from all our storms too). I have grabbed a few discarded faded cushions from big trash lately too, and was going to recover them. I really didn’t want to make slipcovers for the cushions for the patio chairs but they were looking a bit sad.

It is finally nice enough to get outside and play, I will be bringing this to the boys I nanny!
I’m so excited with how it turned out and I think it’s new look has guaranteed it a bit longer stay in the backyard! I’ve used Valspar, Krylon, and Rustoleum over the plastic primer do far and it’s worked well! The compound is very finely milled, and when added to the paint it remains smooth and consistent. I know people get outdoor fabric and recover them but until you have time to do that, you should try this method.
You would probably need to prime outdoor wood with a spray primer before using another color because it wouldn’t absorb the paint evenly. Some of the paint suggestions are intended for siding and not doors, but I think they are all great suggestions for doors as well. It’s hard to say who will have more fun with this – little kids, big kids or the grown-ups!
My whole family uses it, we love the way it leaves our hair and it rinses off completely, no residue that I have found.
Our snow is melting so I think it’s a great last hoorah before it all goes away and we welcome spring! Outdoor Additive is a slightly modified borax compound that is very finely milled, so that when added to the paint it remains smooth. Love your site – have been using so many great ideas for all the kids i watch in my neighborhood.
Real Milk Paint with Outdoor Additive will not blister and peel like modern paint but will act as a sacrificial coating that will gently wear away with time.
I tried it on my outdoor swing (the wood part) and all it did was look like someone took some moss green paint and brushed it on lightly.
