Hi there everyone. How is your day going? Well as I said in my previous blog of part 1. I shall post the rest of our weekend of July 4th. So Saturday, we cleaned the porch, washed down the siding and I stained the porch floor.
So here is a picture of before…we were just about to wash down the siding and floor. I didn’t start the staining till about 5pm. Finally finishing about 6:30 pm
Here we are after the wash and waiting for the wood to dry. It was kind of breezy and in the 70’s so perfect weather to do this. Plus JP did most of the work….I just stained the floor….painting is one of those jobs he doesn’t care for, but I do.
Here is a shot of the floor, half done….starting to look nice huh? As you can see I used Thompson Water Seal. Got it at Walmart for about $18. A stain and sealer all in one. Probably should have used this a long time ago. But procrastination sets in…finally took the bull by the horn and did it. Glad I did, cause the porch floor is b.e.a.u.t.i.f.u.l!!! As you can see.
As I said in the caption, this picture was taken at dusk, like maybe around 8pm or so after it dried and we were able to get the furniture on the porch before it rained. In the next picture will be the floor during the day. Watch the difference.
“BELLA” Beautiful……..so happy I stopped procrastinating and did the job. I keep looking out the front door to see that it is still there. It has rained a couple of times and the rain water beads up….so it is doing its job and working. That’s what I like…something that works!!! After I finished staining the floor, I took Kylie for a walk, came back and started some chicken on the grill. Yes, it was a busy and productive weekend.
Sunday we just enjoyed a few hours sitting on our “new porch”. Well, time to close and take Kylie for her walk today. Tonight is “So You Think You Can Dance” I like that show….love the dancing, makes me wish I had continued my dancing career….did you know when I was a little girl……I wanted to be a bellarina….ha, did not quite make it did I…oh well. Have a great day and keep looking up. Cheers ~ Louise
