Well, I showed you all the work we did on the front porch and now I will show you the back deck. We moved our patio set to the driveway and I got started staining the deck in the redwood. I really like the color pop in the back of the house.
It took me about three 8 hour days to complete by myself. My boys were sick and my honey was working. I power washed it and stained it. Two coats on the floor.
I showed you how bad our patio set looked. A lot of rust cancer.
Then I attacked the old patio set. My honey showed me how to use this evil looking power tool...
It was connected to this contraption of an air compressor.
It spinned really fast and I had to wear protective eye wear. I should have wore jeans as the rust chips were flying off and hitting my legs! However, you can see how well it worked here on the arm of the chair!
There are six chairs and a table. I wore the metal off the tool by the time I was done. Then I wiped them all down and sprayed them with the rust primer.
After priming, I let them dry for an hour and then sprayed them with this olive green. Two cans of primer and seven cans of paint later...
I think it matches the cushions that came with the set really well!
A view of the deck from the woods! Not that anyone sees it but us! Now you can see a better shot of color from the yellow lantern!! I also see one strip of railing that I missed when painting!! UGH! I thought I was done!! Funny what you see in pictures that you miss with the eye!
Doesn't the set look nice now sitting here on the deck? I like the color so much better and not having to deal with the rust is even better! Now I just need to find a deal on some planters to add some flowers to the deck!
I hope you enjoyed day two of the outside reveal!! I still have the mulch job to show you but my honey wants to frame it with rocks to hold the mulch inside. Not sure when that is going to get done!
Thanks for stopping by and come back again to have some sweet tea!!
