When I first got this bench it was a little weathered to say the least! It SOAKED up the primer like crazy. I think I used an entire quart on this bench!! After I got it all seal up I applied the paint, I love this color it is so neutral and perfect for outside! It soaked up the paint fast too....this was on thirsty bench! However I do like when wood soaks up paint, it chips less!!
I loved how well you can see the wood grain I added a glaze over the top to help the wood grain stand out even more!
I top coated this bench with a Spar Urethane as it holds up much better outside.....Add a few pillows and this bench is ready for a new home!!
