Refresh and renew your timber deck
Even decks that have been carefully maintained deteriorate eventually. As long as the damage is not too extensive, all you may need is a localised fix here and there, restoring it to optimum condition in no time.
The benefits of using white paint in your home
White is often derided as a cop-out colour or seen as a blank canvas against which more adventurous colour choices can shine. But white’s simplicity is deceptive; the right shade (warm or cool, with undertones from across the colour spectrum) can work magic in a room, conversing with the light and other decor elements to transform a space.

Health & Safety
Please make sure you use all equipment appropriately and safely when following the advice in these D.I.Y. videos. You need to be familiar with how to use equipment safely and follow the instructions that came with the equipment. If you are unsure, you may feel it is safest to consult an expert, such as the manufacturer or an expert Bunnings Team Member.
Grave health hazards are linked to asbestos, which may be in homes built up to 1990. Health hazards may result from exposure to lead-based paints in older materials and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety
page. You can also use a simple test kit from Bunnings to indicate the presence of lead-based paint.
