    Liz,. Start with 4 colors of paint. Red, yellow, medium green, and sky blue. Paint the slats by alternating the colors. Make sure it's for vinyl, and it's for out doors. Aloha!

    Add plants or decor. You can do seasonal decorations like Valentine's Day, Easter, Memorial Day, etc. It depends on what your style is and the look you would like to achieve. Add ivy, clematis, or other climbing vines. Lights. Birdhouses. Your imagination is your only limitation.

    Forgot to add these need to figure out what kind of fencing it is exactly. Feb 10, 2016 - RodgerAJ, Vinyl fencing can be painted. The PVC vinyl , from which siding and fencing is made, accepts 100% acrylic paints, such as the exterior paints by Behr, very well. They may be applied directly to the vinyl without a primer. ANOTHER Vinyl fencing is a smooth surface that will not take regular latex or oil-based paints. You will need anepoxy-based paint that adheres to the vinyl.

    The white vinyl fence is the shiny vinyl and is not accepting paints well at all. So if anyone can give me ideas or types of paints - epoxy paint? I am looking for a design idea as looking at the white is hard on the eyes too. Is there a wallpaper type of thing that can withstand the Utah weathers?
