Outdoor Furniture Refinish

I have been wanting a new chaise lounge for my backyard for awhile now, but I did not want to spend a lot of money on one. Then I came across this little beauty...

It had obviously been sitting in the Arizona sun baking for a few years. But since it was free, I decided to spruce it up. I used Olympia Outdoor Latex Paint.
The dry wood soaked up the paint, so it took 3 coats. I couldn't figure out a good sealant to use to protect the paint. A man at Lowes suggested an outdoor urethane. They had an aerosol version and he said it would work perfect. I guess we'll wait and see how well it works in the AZ sun!!
