I have a question for anyone who could help me know what to use for an outdoor bronze colored arbour and gate.

We love the arbour/gate we put over a paver walkway area. We've had it for about 1/1/2 yrs. and I'm thinking it could use some spray paint in the similar bronze shade to spruce it back up. Although we've planted some climbing flowers/annuals on it, most of the arbour shows and also the gate. Could someone give me some advice on what kind of spray paint would work for this? Thanks!

    Thank you, I am familiar with rustoleum paint but haven't used it. Guess it would work for this if I can find the right bronze color - don't want it brassy! Thanks for your comment!

    @Celia Albert I was watching a remodel show on the weekend - I think it was I Hate My Bath. The used a product called liquid bronze paint. Here is one site with a liquid bronze paint - If you go into a home supply or automotive store, you may be able to find a larger container. I don't remember the brand the show used. Here is the link to the show's site - the episode I saw it on was the Laundry-Tastic Bathroom. Let us know what you find. BTW rusoleum also comes in liquid paint and they do have metalic colours.

    Thank you Gail, I'll check it out. I've seen that show before too and it was interesting. We are also finishing a new, extra bathroom and I have to paint it before we can get the fixtures in. I appreciate the help very much!
