My grandpa's buckboard had seen better days. I wanted to restore it with some customization. I took it apart first, then brushed and cleaned the metal pieces before painting them. I used a hammered finish black spray paint. I also had to sand off the wood parts, then stain them. I used a gel stain that gave the wood a dark (and IMO a rustic) walnut finish. Next came the polyurethane. Then I put everything back together and made a new cushion with plywood, pad, material and staples.
