I've been busy building for our outdoor space by adding 3 adult size adirondack chairs using the plans found in Ana White's book The Handmade Home. But no outdoor furniture is safe from the elements without some protection!
The folks at Thompson's® WaterSeal® sent me some transparent waterproofing stain in Maple Brown and they're giving away 4 gallons of stain and deck cleaner to one lucky reader!
I used the transparent waterproofing stain in Maple Brown on my new adirondack chairs. It gives a hint of color and a definite seal without being too thick.
I must admit I had some young helpers with the stain on this project They were a little overzealous with the application so there are a few imperfect areas. But I prefer to encourage my kids to participate in my DIY projects rather than be concerned about perfection.
The waterproofing stain is available in transparent, semi-transparent and solid - all in 5 color options.
You can see the Maple Brown is a warm light brown with a slightly yellow hue. I used all pine boards for these chairs so the color may vary depending on your wood species.
Thompson's® WaterSeal® is made for outdoor wood protection so you can use it on furniture as well as decks. Below is a before shot of an untreated deck:
And after staining with semi-transparent Maple Brown waterproofing stain (the railing is Acorn Brown solid):
You can see how the waterproofing stain not only prevents water damage and resists mildew and UV damage but also provides a fade resistant color. How beautiful is that deck now? (Note that is not my deck nor did I .)
Now the adults can join the kids for marshmallow roasting!
