modern wood benches. Adding a bench will decorate any area of your house, but you’ll need to take care of it in order to get a long time worth of use out of it. By taking a while each year for maintenance, your bench will look great for quite a while.
To protect a lumber bench for the exterior element, you will need to use a finish off to those to help protect the timber. You should use color or stain to protect the wood. This can help deter the solid wood from becoming weathered and decaying to the idea it falls aside and becomes unsafe for use.
Before painting or staining a bench, the surface will need to be prepared. Start using a fine-grain sandpaper to fine sand the surface of the bench. The purpose of this is to expose fresh timber so that the bench can easily recognize the new stain or coloring that you apply.
After sanding, you’ll need to clean off of the sawdust from the surface. This can be done with a clean dried up soft rag to remove the dust. You could also use a string blower to remove the dust too. You will need the sanded surface to be clean of any dirt and dirt and grime and dry to receive the stain.
Once you’ve clean the bench, it is now ready fro its new end to be applied. Remember if you work with stain, it will change the color of the timber. Generally when you go to buy stain at a do-it-yourself store, you will notice a good example of how it will look on a piece of wood on display. This can help you choose the right color for your bench.
Apply the stain r car paint with either a mini-roller or a paintbrush. Make sure to apply uniformly throughout the bench. Key areas going to are the joints and where the screws are. These areas will be the most susceptible to the elements.
Allow for the bench to dried up. After it is dry, you should then apply another cost to improve the protection and catch any spots you might have overlooked with the first cover.
