It was frickin hot on Sunday afternoon as we applied the stain, with nearby Nascar noise and neighbors cheering at the Chief's vs. Bronco's as the day's soundtrack. More than a few times I worried about heat exhaustion for Bill, who refused to come down from his ladder to get a drink of water. After about 4 hours, two gallons of stain, one wasp nest, one trip to Lowe's and thirteen thousand brush strokes, we stepped back and surveyed our work. Satisfied with the result, we headed to Outback for some much deserved cocktails and tasty lunch before Bill and Jan headed home. It feels awfully nice to put a big fat check mark next to "Stain the Deck" on our to-do list. Thanks for your help, Bill and Jan!
The deck before...or should I say during, its transformation
