JENNA KATE AT HOME
Anywhere that is still brown is where the existing deck was. I used some special deck resurfacing paint on it a few years ago and I just color matched the existing color.
Transparent stain is just a tinted coat that protects the wood and allows all the grain and knots to show through. Semi-transparent, is like it says, semi-transparent, so it has more color and clouds over the grain a bit more.
It’s tintable to any color which made my life easier because I knew the exact look I was going for – a neutral two-tone effect.
Before we could start painting the new wood deck, it’s was important to prep it. That meant sanding any rough spots and filling any nail holes or cracks in the wood.
In order to cut down on hand painting everything, we used our Wagner Spray Tech paint sprayer and sprayed on all the Extra White paint first.
The deck paint adhered well and there’s no chipping or peeling. The deck stain repels water and the never gets slippery. It was a wonderful product to use and we will happily use it again! Woohoo!
