The Deck Is Done!! (And It Was Easy) 8)
« on: September 12, 2013, 07:32:08 PM »



If you will remember, I had asked folks what they thought was the easiest way to stain all of the pickets/spindles on my deck?

I found the answer .. which I will share below.

This deck, even though it looks it in the pictures is NOT small.

(It measures just over 200 square feet.)

Two of the pictures (bottom) show my unfinished rear steps (doing this weekend).

I included the pictures to show exactly what the wood deck looked like before the staining.






(The 'Unfinished')






Okay, as promised .. my secret to getting all those pickets/spindles and deck done quickly?

My Better-half did it!  :cheersmate:

Nice.

What kinds of bushes are those around the base of the deck?
If you want to worship an orange pile of garbage with a reckless disregard for everything, get on down to Arbys & try our loaded curly fries.

Payments to foreign governments must be reduced, if the nation doesn't want to go bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance.”

Just hand over the chocolate...back away slowly...far away....and you won't get hurt....

Save the Earth... it's the only planet with chocolate.

"My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far I've finished two bags of M&M's and a chocolate cake. I feel better already." – Dave Barry

A balanced diet is chocolate in both hands.

I wish that I knew.
I thought that I knew 'until' I went to search on Google and put "Variegated Plants, shrubs' in the image search engine to make sure.

Looking at the following link .. you can see my dilemma!
