Default what 2 do with a faded blind

I have a blind I left out a little to long and it is faded noticably!!! I thought about getting some bow-flage and spray painting it up a bit. I sure could use some ideas if you have any.

I have one that the top fadded, I took some camo netting like the army uses and put over the top of it. I zip tie it to the brush loops on the blind and it hangs down past the window which allowed me to cut windows out smaller then the ones one the blind. It also makes it easier to brush in cause of the netting. I saw a blind this turkey season that had been painted and it looked good they had painted leaves and viens on it with camo paint. Good Hunting.

paint it with nongloss paint. you can place objects like palmetto's, black jack leaves, pine needles, etc. on the blind and casually spray contrasting colors over them to make patters.

I think camo net would be the best option.

If you paint it do it early to get the smell out.

I think that you should use the camo netting and and use branches like the other guy said I did the same thing on mine. Just the nature of the beast.

The camo is more for other people than it is for the deer. A blind will be something of suspicion no matter how it is camouflaged for the first few days it is in place. Similar to a blown down tree- the deer see it, are cautious of it and then pay no attention to it within a few days. If the blind is for use on private land I wouldn't paint it because of the odor,also some chemicals in the paint will deteriorate the material faster, same thing goes for camo net, I have yet to find some that doesn't smell like dyes and chemicals. You'd be better off using natural vegetation to cover up the blind which I do anyway even with a new blind to help it blend in with the specific environment to try to hide it from other people. Plus cut pine limbs for instance helps to provide some cover scent. Hope I helped.
