Our white Acacia furniture is produced in a satin matt white finish. This is the result of two coats of polyurethane paint, which is applied to Acacia timber. After time hairline cracks may appear in the finish which is due to the timber expanding and contracting and can be more noticeable around the joints. The painted benches are designed to be used outside and we recommend regular maintenance to retain its original condition. This can be done by sanding the affected area down to the natural timber, which is golden in colour. Then re-apply an even coat of white polyurethane paint to this area. The paint can be purchased from any DIY or hardware store.
