Staining the Deck

Because of the harsh and extreme weather conditions Colorado gets, we have to re-stain our deck about every other year. This year was most definitely the year to do it. Our deck was in bad shape. So while the weather is still mostly nice, it was a good time for me to get it done. Larry and I both worked on it on Sunday, but I did most of it, and finished it off today, although there are still some spots that Larry is going to have to get to because I can’t reach them. We have a big deck. I did all of the floorboards, all of the stairs and most of the spindles and posts. But for the most part, it is done. I just finished it about an hour ago.

This is what it looked like before.

I am armed and ready to go. I am prepared and ready to paint.

And here I go ….. This was yesterday’s work.

And I finished it off today.

This might just be the last time this particular deck gets re-stained. The next time, we might just have to have a whole new deck built. It is almost 21 years old, and like I said, Colorado is known for its harsh and extreme weather conditions. We get a lot of snow, hail, heat and high winds; all of which can wreak havoc on a deck or outside paint. I think it came out pretty good, even if I do say so myself. šŸ™‚
