As far as colors go, why not try a few color chips from the hardware/paint store and see what matches? Use flat not gloss or semigloss. My first thought is that you'd have to repaint this often since push up poles rely on friction to hold the sections in the extended position.I have a push up pole for an antenna mast, and I need to paint it so it blends in with a palm tree trunk. It has the typcal grayish brown color. Can anyone suggest a method/color that might best accomplish this?
Wow. Wish I had a backyard like that. I've done something similar with another background I had to blend the mast in with and it worked well..I posted pics in another thread somewhere around here..
I guess I just gonna have to find a base color that matches it (cut a little off the tree to match it) and have at it..find another darker color to blend in the lines that are on the tree.
before painting be sure to degrease the pole first, or the paint might just blow off in tha wind. buy a small can of laquer thinner, pint size will do and saturate a clean rag with the thinner. wipe down throughly. laquer thinner evaperates fast, in about 30 seconds. let the rag dry out out doors over a fence post or like to prevent spontenious combustion. then through in outside garbage container. and don't forget, no smoking when doing this.
