My Sister-in-law gave us this little concrete bench a few years ago, and my wife wanted to stain it. So, that was my project yesterday. Here are some before pictures and videos.
She picked out a “Golden Oak” stain – so I applied it with a brush. The seat portion of the bench seemed to the stain better – presumably due to the fact that it is a “horizontal” surface that takes more abuse from the elements than “vertical” surfaces.
In theses pictures, the seat portion looks much darker – partly because it is in the shade and the pedestals are in the sun. When I put it back in place, it looked pretty good. Here is the final picture and video.
Overall, I like the way it turned out. It definitely looks better than before.
