Cutting in and filling large cracks or screw holes. Tameryn and Thea did quite a bit of painting, especially Tameryn. Those railings were painted also from a sage green to a bright, clean white. A pressure washer worked out great too for all the steps in this process including washing all that old vinyl siding from the mid 80's.
The curing takes 72 hours before any major walking and also decorating of course. It rained 2 days later making the paint seem spongy to me, dh said I was over obsessing to just move everything on if I wanted.... I did wait until later that day to start with putting on the Reversible Rugs, letting it dry a bit more and then the rest of what you see.
|2013 showing a brown stain used originally and sage green railings. The stain did last for quite sometime painting it in 2010 with only some chipping on the ends after the railing edge.|
|The Desert Sand really brightened up the space, which was a welcome change from that dark brown shown here.|
This morning's sun casting some great shadows on the newly painted decking boards. The anti-gravity chairs seen here are for this summer's camping trips but, can live here for now for I am rather enjoying this more modern arrangement.
We will see how the Behr Deckover withstands us and our Pennsylvania winters. Fingers crossed....X

Here in the South we don't hide crazy... We parade it on the front porch and give it a sweet tea.
