My neighbor gave me one of those smaller outside benches (it has metal on the sides and then wooden slats) that was on their curb, I asked before taking just in case.
I am going to put new boards on because the boards are pretty old and one is missing. Then I'll repaint the metal with rustoleum so it'll last... I'll probably stain the boards.
Any idea on what kind of wood would be good? I don't know what kind of wood it is now, and I want to make sure it's good for my son it sit on if he chooses once it's done
