The Deck!

Wednesday night we started the makeover of our deck. Hubs borrowed a power washer and with the company of some good friends we gave our deck a good scrub down to get rid of the dirt and grime. I couldn't believe the difference it made!

As the night ended, we left it to dry so that we could begin our stain/seal Friday after work!
The next day, it already looked like a new deck. The power washer brightened the deck to a whole new level.

Friday night was the big night for us to get started. We started with the outside of the deck. And, we finished most of the railings and outside panels before calling it a night shortly after the sun went down.

Saturday we woke up to finish the inner side of the rails and outer beams. This was the most tedious of the entire process. Once we had this section finished it was smooth sailing for the bottom floor of the deck. We finally finished right before dinnertime.

And we are so excited with how it turned out! Now to dress it up with our patio furniture and some flowers! :)

  1. Thanks! We were fortunate enough that the previous owners built this deck. We just had to re-stain! :)
