Give your patio a quick and easy makeover to set it up for outdoor entertaining. Classic weatherboards are a great backdrop for country styling and if your cladding is looking a bit worse for wear you can freshen it with gap sealer and a paint touch-up.

For you to note
- Gaps between boards need to be sealed, as they can lead to rot due to moisture build-up.
- Use a flexible gap filler formulated for outdoor use that’s UV- and mould-resistant, so it deals with house movement and weathering.
- This project uses a filler tube but you can use a cartridge and caulking gun
