You guys! My deck makeover with black stain DIY is done and I am in love. I haven’t touched this space, since 2015 when I made it over the first time. When I made it over, while it was okay, I definitely felt it was too formal for my style. I’ve always wanted something super casual and relaxed and I’ve accomplished just that. I am so in love.
So let’s take a look back at where this space started earlier in the Spring. It was rough. lol.
It had build up of leaves, grime, and dirt from several years of neglect. I first got rid of everything.
Then I started by pressure washing it.
After pressure washing it, I let it dry for the next couple of days. It was noticeably brighter.
Then using the Cabot stain in black, I stained my deck using a Purdy Roller Brush and Purdy Extender pole. This made the process go by really fast and easy.
Once stained, I added all of the beautiful furnishings. The sofa, rug, hanging planters, and lanterns are from Bed Bath & Beyond.
These planters are not planters. I drilled a hole at the bottom for drainage and hung them outside. I love what they add to the space.
I found this table from my local thrift store for $4.99. Yes y’all, $4.99!
So what do you think? I am in love with how this space has evolved and have already been giving soooo much usage! It’s my new favorite place to be.
Thanks much for stopping by! Until next time.
