Decorating & Furniture/Rubberwood


I bought a daybed from Cost Plus that is made of Rubberwood.  I
would like to use it outside. Is there a treatment that you can
recommend for this type of wood? Or is it just a bad idea all


Hi Yumiko,
Rubberwood is not so good outdoors since it is a non-durable wood and is prone to blue-stain when it gets wet. On the other hand, if the setting was on a patio under a shelter to keep the rain off, it should be OK with just a brush-on anti-fungal treatment to keep mould at bay in the humid environment.
I hope ive helped Yumiko,
Take care and have fun.
