    Hi
    I’ve had my summer house painted but the paint job is awful. I’m unsure whether it’s the painter, the paint or it just needs more coats.
    It’s been done with Cuprinol wood preserver and the Cuprinol shades.
    Any advise?

    It's a bit late now I suppose - my advice would have been "Bedec"

    I am a big fan of the cuprinol garden shades but they really differ in coverage from colour to colour I found. It could just be a case of a couple more coats?

    It could be in need of another coat. It’s had two white on the ceiling and two cream on the walls. Would you just try another coat?

    Have used Johnstone's Garden Colours, goes on well after light sanding of wood, and gives good coverage.
