paint or stain?

massagerocksSeptember 27, 2011

can I use an indoor bench outside on my covered porch? Its pine and stained. I'd like it be black, keeping the seat natural colored. Should I paint it or stain? Would it need a sealer? If painting, would I brush or spray? Any advice is much appreciated, thanks!

As long as it's not getting rained on, use outdoor paint, the stuff meant for shutters and doors.

Spray or brush, whatever you feel most comfortable with.
