paint or stain?

Posted by massagerocks (My Page) on

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!

RE: paint or stain?

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.
