Thorndown Wood Paint has been created so that 1-2 coats is all you need to colour and protect.

Painting a timber arbour with Thorndown wood paint not only protects the timber from the damaging effects of UV and weather, but instantly creates a stunning centrepiece to be admired.

Made with great quality pressure-treated timber, our Triangular Corner Arbour is perfect for those corners that can become a wasted space.

Minimal prep was required but there is always a check list you need to run through before painting.

  • sand off any rough patches that will show or affect the finish
  • remove any surface residue from the pressure-treatment process
  • apply a knotting agent or stain-blocking primer to prevent possible staining of the paint coating – or don’t worry about it and let nature take it’s course
  • make sure the surface is clean. Wash off any dirt with soapy water or use a pressure-washer to blast off persistent dirt or algae. Washing with a light bleach/water solution will help to kill off algae
  • make sure timber is dry otherwise coatings won’t fix properly to the timber affecting performance and longevity
  • check the weather to make sure rain isn’t forecast for at least 24 hours to allow plenty of time for the paint to dry and fix/bond properly
  • get some Thorndown Wood Paint, a brush (roller or sprayer) and something nice and cold to reward yourself with after

Creating a bright, fresh feel for what can be a dark corner. Parlyte Green is definitely a bright fresh green with a soft pastel edge that works wonderfully paired with the rich creamy Bath Cream. A colour combination that harks back to the Victorian era and still works brilliantly today.

Different moods are created with a change of styling from a bright, vibrant, busy party scene, to a more relaxing scene of natural and muted colours that make you just want to sit down and switch off.


The large Herefordshire Arbour creates a perfect statement piece for the whole family to enjoy. We painted it in the pretty Peregrine Blue Wood Paint which has a lovely lilac undertone to it. Contrasted with Bath Cream Wood Paint on the fascias and decorative trellis work the large blocks of colour were broken up and a cottage garden look created.

Again only two coats are needed to provide stunning colour and a long-lasting protective coating that will last up to 10 years.
