This bench was is sad shape!
We found it for $5 at a garage sale.
We used the planer to clean up each board and then added some colorful stain to make it pop! We spray painted the metal.pieces and put her back together.
GF Outdoor oil was the recommended go to for a durable UV protectant sealer. I was very happy with the ease of use. It was easy to apply and now I recommend it whenever anyone asks about a durable UV oil based sealer!
