A few weeks back I received 3" x 3" x 8ft fence posts, treated timber. To make the bird mouth joints I had to order some more.

Not too happy about the colour difference...

I'd like to paint or stain the lighter coloured post to match the darker one. Any one have an idea of what product will do this? Ideally something that lasts.

Thanks :)

It is all down to the density of the wood and how much preservative that he wood has absorbed. I should not bother, the shades will change as the season pass. A load of rain some baking sun. I think you are over focusing on issues of no importance. Surely you will be planting some shrubs to hide the chain link anyway which is far more of an eyesore than shading of wood.

I am not saying this to have a pop, it is just some advice from experience :thumbright:

Totally agree with dwd - the colour will soon change and it'll become a none issue. How exposed/visible will it be once in situ?

No worries, thanks for the information :) Shrubs won't be planted although a large wooden building will hide some of it. Just wanted it to look nice that's all. Good to hear the shades will change as time passes.
