My new yoga studio is currently under construction. I picked up a really old building that needed doing up. Absolutely loads of character but a lot of work and money needed. The cladding on the outside of the building was an absolute mess, the condition of the panels was ok but the paint was all peeling off and it looked god awful.

I’ve always been a bit of a diyer so I bought some special spray paint for wood and got to work. I first had to sand it all down and get all the old paint off. No easy task when you have a whole building to do but if something is worth doing it is worth doing right and well. I’d used spray paints before and usually gone for RAL or Pantone colours. They are an iductry standard and the finish on these paints is unbelievable.

Once the wood was ready to be painted I got to work spraying each panel with my spray paints.

I went with a RAL spray paint aerosol colour, I won’t bore you with the colour code but it’s a nice sunny yellow like the one in my logo at the top of this page.

I really should have taken before and after pictures but all I forgot. Once I got started I got it done within a few days. I’m really pleased with the finish I got from the paints. All the cans I ordered blended perfectly, there were no colour discrepancies. Even better they gave me FREE next day delivery so I could get started on my project straight away. Personally once I get an idea in my head I like to execute it or I get frustrated so the next day delivery suited me down to the ground, it being free was just an added bonus.

Pictures will be posted in my next blog along with an update from inside the studio. I’m waiting for a nice sunny day before I take a photo so it looks at it’s best for the website. Guess you might be waiting a while with this UK “Summer”!
