I just bought a handful of inexpensive Adirondack chairs from Home Depot. These chairs are unfinished wood made from fir. Can anyone help me with a few questions I have?
I want to put a base coat on the chairs, colored paint. These chairs are intended for outside use. The question is, I will be painting art on the chairs with Acrylic paints. One, do I use an exterior paint for the base? Two, Some poly coating turn light colored paint amber so what kind of poly would I use suitable for outside use, and what care should be taken for the longevity of these chairs. The chairs are made from Fir are these okay for outside as long as painted?
Thank you for any help
