I have been working so hard this week on the front porch and back deck. I power washed them both on Saturday AFTER we got 1 1/2 yards of red mulch!! 12 hours about killed me! Still need another yard of mulch and that should do it for this year! Here is a sneak peak before it is done!
I stained the front porch and the wood is in pretty bad shape. Next year we are going to have to sand the floor to get it looking good again but it will work fine for this year. Still waiting for it to dry! It is so humid that it takes forever to dry. Red cedar is a soft wood and we now put a gate up to keep our dog from scratching it so much. See all the marks?
Now I am staining the back deck a redwood and I just LOVE it. It matches the red mulch and gives some color to the back of the house! Here is one of the 7 sections of railing!! Too many small spaces to stain!
My next project will be to wire brush, prime and paint this patio set. It is looking rough!
So now you see what I have been doing all week!!
