I guess I should quit whining because I am grateful to have this space, even with worn out wood and peeling paint. When we moved in our deck was painted this red color and it was an ugly hot color, not like a good red.
Oh and you want to know something special. See those foot prints? They are mine from when the house was getting ready to go on the market and we would sneak over and look in the windows. The deck paint was wet and I got foot prints all over it. If I had only know that a year later we would buy the house I would have taken a hose to the wet paint.
Right when we moved in I painted it in stripes-only pic I can find.
But never got around to painting the red side boards.
2 years later and the paint has faded, worn and chipped off. We thought about sanding the paint off but paint that is in between the boards would show. It was decided we would start over with a fresh wood deck but keep the old supports. My dad came to town to help with the project but he and Eric couldn't pry the old boards off. The screws were stripped so only 1 board was replaced :(
This is how my sad little deck looks today
I have given up my dreams of a wood deck so now I am trying to decide what color to paint it. Any suggestions????????????
The colors in the back are grey house, green door, and orange fabric.
I am thinking just match the house but that is sort of boring. Maybe a mix between the house and the door color? Please help a sister out!
