    I do not know what kind of lumber you used, but unless you used the pressure treated kind, I would worry more about making sure this lasts than trying to get a particular look for it...??? This is too fantastic to allow the elements to damage it before

    Paint it, then sand off areas for a distressed look.

    This is really, really cool! You could apply a stain or even water down some paint to create a glaze and give it an uneven finish that looks aged. Either way, I'm sure it will provide many hours of enjoyment. :)

    Cabot makes a semi-transparent (and also semi-solid) stain in a color called black that is meant for outdoor use. I used their oil based semi-transparent stain on my cedar shake house ten years ago and it's held up wonderfully! The semi-transparent

    Did you come up with the plans yourself or where would I be able to find plans for this. I have looked before, but was unable to find any. I would appreciate any information you could give me. Another grammie wanting to make this for her grandkids.
