Well by the looks of them, they are pressure treated wood, and certainly over a year old, can do about anything you want, just make sure they are clean and dry, after all the rainy weather we've been having......

Clean them if they need it and then apply a coat or 2 of a good deck stain. You'll find the better coatings at your local paint store [advice too] than you will at a big box.
