Step 1


Sand the Finish Off

Lightly sand the existing finish from the swing. You can use a palm sander or a sanding block. Remove dust with tack cloth.

Step 2


Stain the Swing

Put on rubber gloves to avoid getting any stain on your hands. Choose an exterior grade stain for the swing. We used an oil-based stain on this project. Apply a light coat of stain with a staining pad or a paint brush. Apply a quality urethane annually to protect the finish from the elements.
