Our little deck is in pretty bad shape - paint chips, scratches - it's a total mess. Decided it was time to tackle that project since we're gearing up for summer. I love sitting outside, but I hated looking at that deck. Spent a few days pressure washing, scraping and sanding it then got a lucky break in the weather and was able to stain it with a solid stain (looks like paint, but stains like stain, if that makes sense). Now I can fully enjoy my outdoor space without having to look at that eye sore of a deck! Hurray!
