ecological paint for pier

Ecological way to paint beautiful pier

Viena K blog's Vien has been working on her own summer paradise for a few years. Last summer, the exterior of cottage was painted with stunning new charcoal black color on it, and this year's warm May made it possible to renovate the pier early on.

In addition to the stunning visual images, Viena K blog features an eco-friendly lifestyle. At the beach natural daily products are used, also environmental friendliness becomes the most important criteria when choosing a suitable product. Tikkurila Saaristo Laituriöljy pier oli was chosen for protecting the pier and giving it beautiful finish. It is a tintable wood oil which is developed specially for pier protection.

Suitable colour for the cottage landscape could be found in Tikkurila semi transparent wood finish colour card, this worn with age pier was treated with colour 5087 Poro. Saaristo Laituriöljy pier oil protects the pier deck from weathering and prevents wood from splintering. In additional to not getting nasty splinter in toe, swimmer can take a dip from pier to the lake without worries, as Saaristo Laituriöljy pier oil is completely non-toxic and nature water friendly. You can oil the pier deck directly on the water - meanwhile having time for sunbathing!

Putting idea into practice

Don't let workload concerns delay old pier renovation! It can be done by painting only one layer. Sunbathing on a non-splinter pier can be twice as enjoyable!
