Deck correct, is correct my friends! My back was in horrible shape and the color was nothing like the rest of the house. After many questions and requests to see the back deck with my tiny little shed that looks like a barn. I decided to give the deck a makeover and share the space. I have to say I was always trying to find a way to cover up the space before, when I did have to share it.
I found two products that would be the correct fix for the deck. My deck has many cracks and a red brown color that was not flattering. After reading many reviews I decided to go with Cabot in Cinder color from Lowes. This particular one fills cracks up to 1/4 inches and seals the deck from splinters. Not to mention that the finish is textures to ensure that you do not slip when the deck is wet from the rain.
I first started by cleaning off the porch with the leaf blower and then I used the water hose to wash away pollen or dirt. I did let the deck dry overnight and in the morning I did one final sweep before I started to put the paint on.
When it comes to painting for myself, I like to get the brush work done first. Rolling paint is the easy part for me. I painted the inside of each rails and the trim of the porch. It took two coats with a brush to cover up the red brown paint. This paint was quick drying which helps when you need to apply two coats.
Once I had everything painted with the brush I used the roller to get the outside of the rails, the top of the rails, and the main deck. This was very quick and easy! The spaces that I rolled, only took one thick coat.
This revamp was such a quick and simple one that anyone with a can of paint and brush can do! I love how paint can make a whole world of difference!
