First things first: no saws were used in this particular summer project and yes, those are Dan’s real clothes.
The first big summer project of 2016 was all about re-staining the deck, something we desperately needed to do, and by ‘we’ I mean Dan.
We have a lovely deck. But its first coat of stain went on in 2011 and considering the harsh extremes of Minnesota seasons, it was a bit overdue. So Dan borrowed my brother-in-law’s power washer and with Cole’s help, they re-stained both the front porch and the back deck.
Next up, we brought this old table out from our garage. We normally just pile stuff on it but it works great in a pinch as a large gathering table. Only problem? It had the most awful, rusty legs you’ve ever seen (sorry, no before photo, here) so I said to Dan, “Let’s paint ’em gold!”
So we did. And then we stuck some sliders on the bottom of the legs and voila, one new table cloth and a gathering place was created.
That is what I call a good use of gold spray paint. And it will suffice until I can truly afford my dream deck table. Next summer, perhaps.
Stay tuned for more summer projects.
