Wanna watch this stripper work?
The metal is in fabulous condition though, so all she needs is a little touch up on the actual wooden decking.
This is after the stripper has been spread on the wood:
(via nylon brush...use a LONG handled one instead of a handheld. The job goes MUCH much faster!)
If you look closely, you can see the stripper doing its job. It started to rain in the midst of this chore, which was actually kind of great because it saved me from having to scrub and rinse the deck a million times. (PS - DON'T walk on the deck when it looks like this...it IS as slippery as it looks...not that I'm talking from experience or anything...)
So, moving on -- the BEST thing about the newFlood® Wood Care products is that the OneCoat stain can be added to the decking shortly after prepping. Usually you have to wait a few days, and by that time I often lose interest and the job never gets done. With the Flood® OneCoat Waterproofing Finish, it's possible to do the whole job in one day. ...which means the job actually gets done...
Another great thing about this stuff is that it is THICK; It isn't the normal watery stain stuff that is hard to work with. It is slightly thinner than a regular paint product and is easy to load up on a brush; See?
...and all done...
While I was painting, I ran inside and noticed something pretty wonderful. Once the decking is painted it is very similar in tone to the wood flooring inside.
So what's next on the list?? 2 more gallons of a deep dark stain for some wood chairs and bunkbeds,,,,and more redwood on some shutters! After finishing a project, it is RARE that I am inspired to do MORE of the same, but I am seriously into this Flood onecoat stuff.
