*insert the Eurythmics here singing a hilarious parody about staining my decks*
It’s staining season! Time to bust out the pressure washer and stain brush! Time and chores stop for no man.
I just finished pressure washing the front of my house this weekend AND cleaning the
planters gutters out. I had been putting it off, since I had to climb on my roof to get the last bits. But to get to the deck staining (and finally get my shutters up!) I got busy. In order to to reach the spots I needed to I had to lean off the side of my lower roof, holding the rope in one hand and the pressure washer gun in the other. It was a little Rambo, and I admit, I felt totally bad ass doing it (I was totally safe with my fall gear on). Check that bitch off the chore list!
Then I scrubbed the front deck with Simply Green and pressure washed the mossy grime off. It’s only been two years since I refinished them, but good lord does it need it again! I’m almost done – just a few hours more and it can dry to get ready for stain. I’m using Sikkens (expensive but worth it, in my opinion).
So what else did I do on my childless Canada day weekend? (My people *sniff* are gone for a month and a half)
Mr. J and I had a wonderful, delicious evening in, and then we tripped the light fantastic and danced until 3 in the morning the next, arriving home at a very late/early 4:30am. The birds were a chirpin’. So there was some fun, in with all the work around here.
I created a t-shirt store! Help support my renos and wear some cool duds – wins all the way around! There is even a shirt I made from the graphic I did for Mr. J’s mug for Christmas (I bet you can guess which one).
