I have a shed painted gray. It sits off of the ground and the previous
owners put reddish cottage stones around it which looks nice, and really
finishes it off. It also keeps the skunks out from going underneath it.
Can these stones be painted gray? They are porous. If so, can they be
spray painted, or would it be better to brush paint the stones?
Also, would the paint eventually flake off? I don't want to create a
huge job which means all the stones would have to be painted every other
year or so.
Thanks for all feedback.
I do not know what a cottage stone is. Eventually is a relative term. And
nothing lasts forever except taxes.
Pressured washed, allowed to dry, primed and painted with a quality paint I
would guess 5-10 years before you needed to do it again.
The biggest potential problem is moisture coming up or from the unpainted
side. Then it might be a touch up every other year.
I would apply it with a brush.
