ENHANCE AN UMBRELLA STAND

A splash of cheerful color for an umbrella stand will add a new dimension to your indoor d├ęcor. Ace can help make this project easy with the paint, supplies and expert advice you need.

WHAT YOU'LL NEED:

  • Clark+Kensington® interior paint
  • Primer
  • 1.5" angled paintbrush
  • Paint tray and liner
  • Paint stir stick
  • Painter's tape
  • Tape measure
  • Pencil

The first step is to prep and prime. Measure the height of your accent color area and mark it with a pencil. Then apply painter's tape around the stand outside of the marks. Use the paintbrush to apply primer.

Once the primer has dried, stir up your can of Clark+Kensington® Paint Fruit Basket 25B-6 and apply two coats with the brush, giving each coat time to dry before applying the next. Work carefully to avoid any drips or runs.


HELPFUL TIP:

Remove the painter's tape before the paint has finished drying to create nice clean lines


Once your finish dries, put your creation by the front door and you have a handy new home for your umbrellas. It's the perfect project for a rainy day! All it takes to get it done is the right paint and some expert advice from Ace…the helpful place.

If your home was built prior to 1978, check for lead-based paint before you sand or scrape any painting surfaces. Call 1-800-424-LEAD or log on to www.epa.gov/lead for more information.
