Willie a postal employee who travels the United States, calls me to do repairs on his cottage. Willie's front porch has two 4x4 wooden posts that needed repair.

This post shows the six steps to painting the the porch post.

Step 1: Fig.1 shows the wooden supports had deteriorate and needed to be replaced, but since Willie budget was depleted, a simple priming and painting job needed to be done. Black tape was used on the bottom of each posts to protect the cemented area. After all 8 sides where sanded smooth, the application of white paintable caulking to the gaps in the wooden posts, the crevices were filled.
