I love my walnut 9 piece dining furniture but I thought of giving it a new spot. A place where its beauty can be admired the most especially at this time of the year here down under, spring. Of course, during summer its beauty and purpose can linger on.
I took the risk of putting it in our courtyard, our outdoor space. The problem definitely is how to keep it damage-free because of the harsh weather and other elements outside. So, me and my hubby went to Bunnings Warehouse where you can find all stuff for home renovations and DIY projects. This is what was recommended to us:
The solution: Bondall Clear Timber varnish for Indoor furniture ( I contains invisible Zinc to protect your furniture from UV light exposure.
Then during my day off from work, I did my project. I put varnish on my dining table and 8 dining chairs.
I applied one thin coat and let it dry which I think only took an hour. But after the drying time, I was pleased with what I saw and therefore, I decided not to apply another coating.
One coating was enough to make it shiny and cover some of the small scratches. Well, my husband said that he’ll apply the second coat one weekend to really make sure our furniture gets the maximum protection from high temperature when summer arrives. But for now, I am just happy to have a shinier 9 piece dining suite in our courtyard.
For sure there is no regret that I took the risk of transforming my indoor dining suite to be an outdoor furniture. Now I can say, we are pretty much prepared to face and enjoy the increase of afternoon life as Daylight saving time commences in NSW and other parts of Australia tomorrow.
