It goes on very thick with a roller. It dries pretty quickly too. We have an old house. I think it is around 35 years old. So this deck may be really, really crotchety! That means old in pig latin. And we redid the flat part last year. This year we wanted to redo all the posts and cover up those dumb hearts. (Who puts hearts on balconies except the Swiss? Are we living in the Swiss Alps or what?)
|The awful Deck. This is the BEFORE DECK RESTORE picture.|
|Close up of how badly we needed some RESTORE DECK PAINT done here....|
|RESTORE DECK PAINT comes in a gallon can and we bought an applicator roller that had a texture to it. You can add your broomstick to it so it isn't so backbreaking to apply.|
|Here is my cute hubs doing the MANLY WORK! We got a color matching THE RESTORE PAINT for the deck posts and the railings around the deck. I still haven't done it.....I am such a procrastinator! Maybe I can get him to do THAT TOO! hmmm.....|
I decided our old umbrella had seen better days. So I got a fresh, new, green umbrella and some cute outdoor cushions and a few decorations for the deck. It was so boring before! But don't the deck planks look fantastic? Oh yeah!
|I love the new umbrella and the oil lamp on the table. I found it from Pier 1 on clearance! It was only 8 bucks! Woot!|
The flag above I won in a blogger contest. Yay for me! It is so pretty out on the deck post.
|Fake flowers in pots around the deck mixed with real ones. I got that tip from JOY IN THE GARDEN'S radio show. She does it even with tulips and daffodils! Great idea!|
|We added these copper, solar lights to the end posts of the deck, they were about $15.00 each at the end of the summer last year. Aren't they pretty? Check them out Here at Home Depot.|
|Here is the DECK RESTORE looking great! (we still have to get rid of those hearts though! I'm still working on painting the posts and handrails. It's a work in progress. It's so hot I can only stand painting in the evenings.|
|I took a break from home improvements and got season passes for the hubs and I to go to Cowabunga Bay. They had a Buy One Get One Freebie deal so I bought 4 more tickets so if some of my relatives come we can go play.|
|Swimming at Cpwabunga Bay is so fun the 98 degree heat! Oh yeah. I can't wait!|
|Megan is all over this place like a wild thing. She has no fear at all!|
She loves all the slides at Cowabunga Bay.
Josie girl chillin with us.
|Now doesn't my pretty deck look pretty awesome? I love hanging out there in the early evenings with the hubs. Now I just have to get him to help me do all the railings....sigh....It never ends.|
