Outdoor bench furniture restoration

Hi everyone,

If you are 'uming and ahhing' over whether or not its worth the time and money saving that piece of outdoor furniture before summer hits - I'd like to share my recently completed outdoor bench restoration. This is a great example of what can be acheieved with VERY limited time and budget. I purposely used the cheapest, entry-level products to find out what exaclty would be achieved - and I was amazed with the results.

Because this was a entry-level decking oil, I won't get the longevity and protection you would with a high quality oil. But this will be great as extra seating for guests on our balcony over the Christmas break.


The products used for this project totalled between $40-$50, and between 1.5hrs-2hrs over 2 days.
