Probably not a good idea to leave it out uncovered. I had a similar BM Bargains one, I even gloss painted it, but it rotted in about a year and a half...
Get a couple of free pallets and you can make it yourself
Hmmm I had similar one from b&m. I painted it with that johnstones outdoor wood stain and it just gets left outside. Been good for years. Just make sure you use something with varnish in it.

You could stain it and use yaught varnish too.

Probably best not to gloss paint it, it will stop the wood from drying out in the sun. I would just use a light oil or wood preservative.

If its gloss painted, it wouldn't need to dry out as only the paint surface would get wet...?

Probably not, most gloss paints now are water based so not waterproof. If you use an oil based paint then it tends to crack and you have the same problem.

You can use a water based sealer then a water based gloss which will be okay, although personally I wouldn't use in on something that will get quite a bit of abrasion like a bench.

If you want a coloured look the best way IMO to do it is to dilute matt paint with two parts water, and then use that to paint. It will sink into the wood and provide a more durable finish. The more coats you use the bolder the colour will become, and they don't take long to dry. You can then use some oil on the surface.
