Dave has been hard at work sanding our back deck and prepping it to be stained. When we moved into our house 4 years ago, the deck was painted grey, which we weren't too fond of. So last summer we removed the stain with a power washer, and now we're finally finishing our project. Yesterday Ethan saw a couple of paint brushes and a can of wood stain on the kitchen counter.
Ethan: "Mom, what are you painting now?"
Me: "Dad is going to paint the deck."
Ethan: "What color? Black?"
After all, he probably doesn't think there is any other alternative, since everything we've painted recently has been black. :) Am I the only one who is into black furniture right now?!
But seriously, no, have no fear, our back deck will be a nice shade of natural cedar. Exciting, isn't it?
