To clean the wood, we power washed the pieces with a solution of soap and bleach.
For the finish, we used Glidden Exterior Flat black paint. We allowed the furniture to dry for 24hrs before applying paint.
We purchased Thompson’s WaterSeal to project my pallet sectional from water damage but neglected to use it.
And two years later, this is how the unprotected sectional looks. I believe there would have have been less color fading if it would have been protected. But overall, it’s in really good condition.
