I’m looking to make a corner seating area for a raised patio which will be part painted and part stained. Firstly, am I best using tantalised wood which has either been allowed to dry or treated with the appropriate sealant or is untreated kiln tried softwood okay if painted/stained and sealed correctly?
Secondly what paint, stain, sealant would you advise. It is like this will remain outdoors year round.
Thanks in advance
