Painting standard jumps?

My BO has been saying how she needs her jumps to be painted. They are in BAD condition some are rotting and some just needs a paint job. We have left over paint but im not sure if you need exterior or not? What kind of paint do you use for your jumps? Also do you sand them down before painting? I hope to get free jumping lesson in exchange for the labor....

My hubby made me my jumps. He sanded them down and then applied an undercoat plain white emulsion. He then went over them with just a normal wood gloss. He finished them off with a clear varnish, just to add that bit more protection against the elements. They still look as good today as when he made them. You just might find that they need a few coats.

Thanks! Most of the paint is chipped off, so I think I will have to sand them down. But I dont want to do 20 + poles by hand! I never thought of the varnish! Thanks a lot

You could always buy pole covers for the poles? That's what I did in the end. They are really cheap too, and all different colors.

What are those? I think my BO would rather have them painted.... But do the covers protect them from the weather?

They are just like a plastic sleeve that you can get in different sizes. You just slide it up the pole.
You cant really tell the difference between painted and cover as you can see. They're really cheap to buy too.

i use a stiff wire brush to scrape off as much peeling paint as possible, then paint using exterior latex. we got a paint sprayer that was absolutely amazing! What used to take DAYS to paint only takes a few hours. I love it.

If there are a few of you out there that use them do you think you could set up a date and all work on them together? It'd be more fun as a group and get done much faster.

I agree you should sand them down first and then do what meggymoo said.
