Cubby House Paint

Hi

 

Could someone please advise on the most suitable products to treat and/or paint a new wooden cubby house for our grandchildren?

 

We are buying one from Bunnings and would probably like to do it in coloured paint, but any advice would be appreciated. The cubby house will be in Victoria, so will be exposed to rainy winters!

 

Here is a link to the cubby house https://www.bunnings.com.au/swing-slide-climb-hut-cubby-house_p3321702

 

Many thanks

Caro

@CaroF,

 

I would choose a quality exterior paint that is self-priming and easy to wash down. For example https://www.bunnings.com.au/dulux-weathershield-4l-low-sheen-vivid-white-exterior-paint_p1400227

Hi @CaroF, like @MartyH said make sure you go for quality and you cant go wrong with Dulux. Get their best outdoor stuff and you can even get a matt/gloss clear acrylic spray to give it some extra protection.

 

Looking forward to seeing the finished product.
