How to Antique an Outdoor Fountain

Antiquing an outdoor fountain is not a usual diy project but it is low cost and really does spruce up the look of the fountain.

This is a super easy 30 minute project. All you will need is: One can of stain, a pad or brush to apply it and some rubber gloves to protect your hands.

Before anything, hose down the fountain to remove dirt and debris. (We cleaned ours thoroughly and actually repainted it also, see below photo)
