I previously posted this picture of the picnic table I found and bought off of Craigslist.
It was exactly what I had been looking for. Although the weathered look was nice and I'd have no problem keeping it that way if I had to, I decided to spruce it up!
I search online and found a great tutorial on just what to do. "How to Restore Outdoor Furniture"
I cleaned it up with just these few items...
And made this happen...
I just rubbed it on using a rag, and then went right back through and did a second coat. See the difference!
Rich, shiny and protected.
