How do I refinish a wooden toy box/bench?
I was given a wooden toy box that I would like to turn into a bench to place at my front door. The previous owner said it had several layers of paint and bid me good luck refinishing it. Now I’m hesitant to just paint it. My questions are, do I remove all the old paint or just paint over the existing paint with outdoor paint? If I have to remove all the old paint, how do I do that? Are there other things I should know before I begin this project-what am I in for? Thank you for the help!

I would lightly sand it and prime with exterior oil based primer, then do 2 coats of semi gloss latex exterior paint. No other sealers needed
Just lightly sand with 220 grit sandpaper to remove any shine. Prime with Kilz primer then paint your color. You can use acrylic latex paint. Seal with three coats of a water based polyurethane.
Take it to Econo Auto Painting and ask them to paint it for you just like they paint cars. It will be a hard , shiny and gorgeous. No need to sand when they do it!👍😉😀
If you like rustic, there are some gels that will dissolve the paint like it was old gelatin. Then, using a blowtorch, make it like it was a log-hewned finish.
