I am looking forward to bring this outdoor storage box back to life a bit of clean and shine.
I will give it a pressure wash first. After that what must put on this - some oil or just the paint I like(oak or walnut)?
I painted mine with a mixture of linseed oil and turps. With the storm just passed it did well in its semi-protected position although some sort of plastic lining would be a good idea. I plan to do that
Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community. Thank you so much for joining us and sharing your outdoor storage box project.
If you are using a pressure washer I recommend making sure that the unit is totally dry before sanding and painting the unit. Please make sure that the paint you use is rated for exterior use. I recommend Bondall 1L Monocel Walnut Stain and Varnish it is rated for exterior use and has excellent UV resistance. It is an all-in-one product and you don't need to use two separate products to achieve finish and protection on the storage box.
We look forward to seeing your project once you begin.
Let me also extend a very warm welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community. It's fantastic to have you join us. Please let us know if you ever need a hand getting the most from the site. We're looking forward to reading more of your posts soon.
