wooden patio furniture--paint or stain?

I have some new unfinished wooden pation furniture sitting in my garage.

Before I break it out I will paint or stain it. But the question is which is the better choice: PAINT or STAIN ?

And once I choose which is better, which paint or stain products would you reccomend?

Thanks for any tips.

Hard to make that decision for you. Stain is easier to apply and easier to recoat. Paint involves more work [primer, more prep for repaint] but lasts longer.

As with any paint/stain you will find the best coatings at a paint store, not a paint dept.
