I am going to restore these chairs leleliz picked up for me last weekend (thanks Liz)!

I was wondering if anyone knows what kind of paint Witco used for the colors? Was it actuall paint or colored stain?

Also, any tips on how to restore the weathered wood is greatly appreciated!

Thank you

ken told me to used (golden oak) stain to restore the shiny look back to the wood and it works like a charm...makes dull witco wood look like new again.....use the yellow labeled can of miniwax brand.....

you really should contact him directly to find out what type of paint...
