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