I think the one year applies to green lumber not in the sun. For that treated wood that was kiln dried prior to being treated, I would think more like a few weeks and you could paint it.

Totally Agree! In fact I just took a piece I had left over from another project, quick sand down and made a Table Top Tray from it. Stained (went on very nicely) and 2 coats of water based poly. DONE!

The entire piece was bought from HD less than 3 weeks ago. So “trz” if you’ve had at least that long …

Paint Away!! For outdoors I wood use a Water Based Exterior Grade Paint. Oil Based might go all Weird on you and contrary to popular belief it won’t last longer than water based. Redoing Oil Based anything is a real PITA!
