Absolutely gorgeous Andrea! I love the curve of the arms. I'm not big on staining so I don't know what to tell you. I normally paint everything. I figure by the time it needs repainting I probably want it to be a new color anyway :)

Deb @ Frugal Little Bungalow

LOL I would be lazy and do neither / they look in good shape from these photos. I would just concentrate on the cushions for color.

Having said that if I HAD to one or the other I'd probably paint


Lucky you. Those are nice. I say either way.


Stain those beauties! No use in fighting with paint when you know you're going to put pretty colorful cushions in them.

I love the curves--what a great find! I would paint. You can pick any color at all and when you get sick of it--paint them again!! What ever you do--can't wait to see what you do...


Paint them black. Do pillows in burlap with black print.


I've had really good luck with solid color stain in white. I've used it on fences and arbors and it holds up really well, no chipping! I also like the dark walnut stain idea. Either would look nice, just depends on which style you want. I wouldn't paint them, I've never had any outdoor furniture with paint hold up well, needs sanding and re painting every year to look good.

Now if I could just find something so nice on the curb I'd be a happy camper. Amazing!

And painting them a bright vibrant color would be such a Brenda-thing-to-do!

At Rivercrest Cottage

I would paint for a more colorful approach. Looking forward to what you decide to do.


Gorgeous lines, Andrea! Hubby did great! I painted two chairs similar to this, back in the Spring...semi-gloss black.

Pam @diy Design Fanatic

What??????????????????? Fabulous find!!! I love it the way it is..


I personally would do neither and concentrate on acquiring a selection of colorful pillows that could be swapped out, seasonally or on a whim. For patios, I'll admit, I like a chippy, well-loved, vintage look.

I myself always love a good pop of color in the garden.

I hope you are enjoying the summer.


Ok, no matter what you do, you will have to redo it in a few years.
there are some awesome stains out there, but stain is a pain, even the water based ones....(from personal experience)
So, I would paint them.
A stunning dark gray would be lovely....Benjamin Moore has one that is lovely almost black but not....
Don't do shiny....
And then have some fabulous cushions....that is where you can have so much fun.
I think paint is the way to go......
