Painting My Diving Board...Again

 Back in 2018 I shared how I painted my stained & dingy diving board with Dixie Belle Paint...

You can read that post HERE.

It was so colorful & pretty, & it held up beautifully.

Last year, we had to get a new liner. The paint colors didn't match well with the new liner. So, of course, I painted the diving board again!

As before, I taped off sections with painter's tape to create stripes. Then used Dixie Belle paint colors that better matched the new liner.

The colors I used were Fluff, Cobalt, In The Navy, French Linen, & Dusty Blue.

Because of the texture of the diving board, some of the paint did bleed under the tape. So I used a small, flat artist brush to touch it up.

I sealed the diving board with Dixie Belle's Gator Hide. Gator Hide is water repellant so it's perfect for outdoor use. It adds a slight sheen to create a nice satin finish.

Diving in to Summer with another Dixie Belle makeover...

While I had my paint out, I updated my terracotta pots using the color Cobalt, leaving a little of the terracotta peaking through...
