I brought a "rattle can" for £4 in Wilco and had a go at an old scooter first which was faded red and yellow with odd stickers. I wrapped the wheels and handle bars in newspaper fastened with masking tape. Three light goes at spraying later, leaving it to dry in the sun and it looked quite good. Should I have done the purple front "forks" on the front wheel?
I have some red and blue tape from husband's shed that can be added if grandchildren want to make "go faster stripes" later.
The swing will be a much bigger job but I feel much more confident. Husband will welcome this as he thinks the pink is a bit out of synch with his sophisticated garden designs (Ha Ha).
