Our deck needed an overhaul this year. As you can see, the grey stain from five years ago has seen better days. Don’t tell anyone, but I never liked the grey anyway.
So we stained the floor Lowe’s Olympic, Jefferson Tan and on the arbor, wall, and lattice work, we matched the color of the trim on the house. It’s been a slow process. We’re still not finished, but for Metamorphosis Monday at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com I thought I would show you a portion of what we have accomplished.
Our adirondack chairs and glider were previously painted white so we repainted them to match the arbor, wall, etc. YES, I did help!
Bought this planter at Target
Filled it with newspapers.
Topped that with shredded grass.
Displayed old metal garden tools and clay pots.
Sealed it with a glass top
Set a water fountain that I picked up at a garage sale on the glass top
Stenciled the Adirondack chair
Flanked the table with our Adirondack chairs, freshly painted and stenciled
WHEW! Where’s that jug of iced tea.
