This is a long process when you DIY. Luckily, I am blessed with a hard working husband. He did all the work – and it took him about 15 hours! But now, we have a beautiful deck and front porch.
First, he cleaned the wood with a special solution, spraying and scrubbing for hours. Then, he applied the stain so beautifully. The result? A beautiful deck that we cannot wait to eat on this summer. Now we need to put together our patio table and chairs and get lights and plants set up.
Below you can see the photos of our front porch getting finished, the Princess on the back deck while daddy is starting on the opposite corner.
