How to build an Outdoor Wood Plank Loveseat
Unlike most projects, since these boards are all different colors the staining must be done up front. For this project the frame is stained with Varathane’s Kona and the planks are stained with Vintage Aqua, Bleached Blue, Rustic Sage, and Antique White (bottom to top). After the stain dried we distressed the edges with 220 grit sand paper.
