Wipe the wood with a lint-free cloth thats slightly damp with methylated spirit. How to prepare old garden wood.Old wood thats already been painted or has been left outside for a while should be quickly sanded down. This will get rid of loose paint and give you a smooth surface to work with. Wipe down the surface with white spirit to remove dirt or grease. Any mould or algae should be cleaned away and rotten wood should either be cut away or hardened. Sheds and fences can be prepared with a stiff wire brush. Brush away any dust or debris and wipe clear before painting. Sand down the surface until any glaze is properly removed. Apply water to the terracotta and if it beads, you will need to keep sanding to remove the glaze.
