I'm posting my Before and Afters on "Show and Tell Fridays" at My Romantic Home. Hope you will visit there too:
The Deck and the Dining Chairs
It was getting pretty bad. I think it's only been two years since it was washed and sealed last. Being under the trees, it does tend to build up the moss and mold. Also being so near the ground doesn't help!
I found an ad in the phone book for an Amish man who refinishes decks so I called. He came with a helper who wasn't amish so they came by car, not horse and buggy. They power washed the deck about 7:30 AM yesterday and then waited till it dried and went to get the semi-transparent paint I had picked out. They had it all done before 3PM.
It looks nice and clean and bright now. Sort of matches my shed in the back.
I'm hoping it lasts for at least 3 years.
The Dining Chairs
Remember these? I got them about a year ago in preparation for my new dining room.
Then I found this beauty last winter in my favorite thrift shop.
This is how my dining room looked while my kitchen was being redone. (Before they started on the dining room.)
The painting process. I LOVE Krylon Fusion Satin Black!!!!!
It gives a beautiful finish without having to sand!!!
Here's a sneak peek of how my chairs go in the dining room. I'm still not done so I'm not doing the "big reveal" yet!!
Have a great Friday everyone.
