I am so excited! I finished the deck project this week! Here is what it looked like. Nice enough, needs staining and sealing, doesn't really go with the character of the house.

After prepping and staining/sealing the floors, I kept thinking about the rest of the house. The railings could be stained.....maybe white?

Yes. I'm thinking white railings definitely would be better on this 101 year old house.

After 2 coats of white stain, and hanging upside down and backwards to get all the surfaces covered I finished. Now instead of decks, as Cass said, we have porches!

(Upstairs) It's a clean slate.

Have a wonderful Monday!

It looks crisp and clean and ready for staging...the fun kind not the building kind. Job well done!

Debbie said...

Fantastic! I totally agree that you have PORCHES and not decks. You make me really want to redo my deck area. Like... today, even!

Hi Carol, I love this!! I'm always amazed at the transformation with a bit of white. Crisp and new. Come on over to my house, I have a couple of projects in mind. ;)

Thanks for stopping by my little corner. I was delighted to share my breakfast. Have a lovely day.

I agree, that if it has pretty rails like that, it's a back porch, not a deck! It looks really nice Carol!

Hi Carol,
that was a big job but it looks so good- you must be so happy to have it done.

Take care,

It looks fabulous, Carol!!! I know that was a lot of hard work, but the payoff is definitely worth it. Tell you hire out?!?!?!?!?
