Our Montana summer seemed more like a Seattle summer thanks to the unusually frequent rainfall. What does this mean? We didn’t get many outdoor projects done this year. Fortunately, we didn’t have many on our list. We did, however, get our fence painted, finally! Last summer, we primed it, but it didn’t hold up to the elements very well. So, over the weekend, Ben used a pressure washer to remove any loose, chipping or peeling paint.
Isn’t this lovely?
After some reasearch, Ben decided to use an opaque white stain by Behr, specifically formulated for outdoor wood and siding.
Using a sprayer, Ben applied an even coat, then used a brush to smooth it all out.
We also closed the open area where we had planned to install a gate.
When we built the fence, we had large, communal garbage cans in the dead end alley. I guess our garbage man ran into a few too many things while backing up, so the city gave us individual garbages. Why am I telling you this? Because we no longer needed access to the alley as our garbage is now up front.
Long story short, one more item has been checked off our to do list!
