You'll probably get various opinions, but mine is: let the treated lumber dry out thorougly first. Then, maybe in the fall, use a transparent stain in the color you prefer. I'm not a fan of waterproofing...it just doesn't do much and it certainly doesn't last long. Color is mostly a function of stain, not of waterproofing. Transparent stain will provide good protection longer .
