The small deck in the back was covered in peeling red and white paint. Although it’s one of many things that will eventually be torn out, we’re far from that and in the meantime we’re stuck looking at it. So we went ahead with lots of scraping. sanding. and staining.
Lots of the paint easy scraped off, and the kids were happy to help. The belt sander took care of the rest. A couple boards had to be replaced, an old satellite dish was removed, and then the deck was ready to stain.
I kind of like it better with just one coat (below), but it’s much better than it was before!
