What do I use to protect outdoor furniture

Just Starting Out

What do I use to protect outdoor furniture

We have an outdoor timber table and chairs, and I would like to paint it with something to prevent it deteriorating in the weather. What should I use?  I don't want to change the colour of it, I just want a clear sealer. Should I just use the same sealer that I use on our merbau deck (Intergrain)?

Kind of a Big Deal

Re: What do I use to protect outdoor furniture

Bunnings have a great option in the high quality Feast Watson. Not really any need to look elsewhere @barnmz 😊 Importantly, it needs to be a penetrating oil.


Not sure which Intergrain product you used on your Merbau deck but you'll probably find it's not clear.

Handy and helpful

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @barnmz. It's fantastic to have you join us and many thanks for your question.


It's great to see you have already revied some terrific advice from @ProjectPete.


I'd advise going with the product Pete has suggested as it is specifically designed for furniture. If you were to use the decking product you might find it leaves staining on clothing as contact with materials shouldn't be a regular occurrence.
