Painting it with some Thompson's Water Seal might be a good idea as well, just to help protect it from the elements, unless you plan on painting it wood color. That would be a fun project.

I use latex house paint.
Brown,brick,tan, an earth tone.
Then give it the magic blackening treatment.

That looks fantastic Will! Is that some sort of rag technique?

That Sir, is a handy technique! Kind of like dry brushing but in reverse. Thanks!
