    Can black fencing be re-coloured? 11th Mar 18 at 4:53 PM
    A relative has moved into a house where all the garden fencing is black. It's good quality, so she doesn't want to replace it, but the black is very gloomy and depressing.

    Is there a way to change the colour to, say, brown?

    Any advice appreciated.

    Paint it, it will take a few coats but any colour can be changed.

    Maybe better results to use a garden paint rather than a stain. Will likely take a few coats though
