Exclamation Not sure about this

Hi everyone, Im in need of some quick insight. Iam not a painter, but i am looking to do a community service project in the near future. I am not sure how much paint to buy to complete my project. If you could give your insight, it would be greatly appreciated. I have two major parts. One is the deck/sandbox area and the other is about 20 of those little benches.







Thanks for your time
-Chad

Xair- this is a little out of my field, but to those who do it , a Q. How do you plan on applying the material? I suspect by hand, not spray, because you are not a painter with the equip.
Do you know about applying with a mini roller and back brushing in? Very helpful tip with all those spindles.

Measure the square feet of surface, most paints get 2-300 feet of coverage per gallon. It depends on what you are putting on though, is that a stained deck? Will it need washing or treating? What are those benches made of?
Sounds like a nice thing you are trying to do. Is there a painter in your area who might help you?

Go to a Sherwin Williams in your area and tell them your plan, if the store manager is anything like mine. He will swing by take a look tell you what you need and the steps to complete the project.
