Staining decks… I knew I had forgotten to do something the last few years.
Looking back, I think we stained it back in 2002 and it was showing a lot of age for sure.
So last week we pressure washed off the worst of it and were left with this:
It took almost a week to stain as the weather was not cooperating enough to let it really really dry out enough.. and then of course, we ran out and had to go and get more.
Some minor renovations also had to take place once we took a really good look at the wood, especially the top rails, split and coming apart in places.
