Weekend Warriors


This weekend I felt like we should have been on the show, "Weekend Warriors". We hadn't touched our deck since we bought the house and it needed some major TLC. Originally when we talked about the project, we were going to replace all the deck boards. After some budget considerations and for the sake of time, we decided to do some power washing and only replace boards that were splintered or weak. We also reconfigured the layout, adding another exit to the yard, a couple planters and two benches. My favorite part of the new look is the black aluminum balusters that replaced the wood spindles. We still have some more power washing to do, will stain the wood in a few weeks, and I have decided to make some cushions for the benches, but I am loving the new look!
