Paint Your Outdoor Rocking Chair

Paint Your Outdoor Rocking Chair

Paint Your Outdoor Rocking Chair – Wooden outdoor rocking chairs may not require any finish. Some woods, particularly teak, cedar, and cypress, possess qualities that allow them to withstand weathering with very little maintenance and no chemical treatment. These woods resist moisture and dry out faster than other woods. Natural oils they produce repel insects and pests. When left unfinished, the wood weathers, over time, into a silvery gray. Owners who wish to preserve the wood’s original color will need to choose a finishing method for their outdoor rocking chairs. Staining, sealing, painting, and oiling are some of the alternatives available.

Before painting outdoor rocking chairs, you should give the wood a light sanding. Sanding the wood smooths it before a first application of paint or stain.
