    I use Floods CWF 4 Clear on my log home, and patio/porch wood furniture. Works great, lasts 7 years.

    Gardenmomma, given the elements where you live, may I suggest using an outdoor approved paint for your dresser. There are many on the market then you could use and then seal with a marine grade varnish over your piece for extra durability. You can absolutely have wood furniture pieces outdoors, it would just be a matter of finding the right paint and finish for your specific area. Most home improvement stores can help you narrow down the right choices! ~Heather

    It says to use exterior paint or clear polycrylic finishing spray. You also could use an outdoor/deck stain. They come in many different colors but perhaps not what is shown in the picture. You could use other waterproof items to decorate it with.

    That's the color of stain that I've been searching for to stain my gothic wooden fence! Anyone know what that shade is called?

    A bit late, however I add my "vote" to skip the ivy. I planted some tiny plants along our fence and it ended up a nightmare. I finally had to hire someone to remove it. Even then it would show up here and there. It's the most invasive plant I've ever seen. Oh, and it attracted snails like crazy! Ivy can also harbor rodents - I was lucky that didn't happen to us! I'd look for another wall/fence climbing plant.

    I like the fence pattern. I love the layout of the plants. Where do you find the plants that are in the picture?

    Hi Joyce, here are some of the plants you'll find in that image: hosta, tulips, ivy, trumpet vine...I think I also might spot some yellow pansies in the corner, and the purple/brown grass appears to be purple millet. Good luck!
