I have a Dream Deck – one with comfy furniture, enough shade so my friends and I don't fry ourselves in the middle of July, a space for a grill so I can fire up some brats and burgers, and, of course, enough room left in the yard so my dog and my friends' kids can run out in the yard and play.
But alas, I live in a rental condo, so I must make do with my concrete slab patio and a partially-fenced-in area. However, thanks to Pinterest and Flood® Wood Care, I can start planning to build the Deck Of My Dreams if and when the time is right.
Check out this adorable cedar deck I found on Pinterest! Isn't it awesome? First of all, it's attached to a Little Pink House, it's got inviting and comfy furniture, enough room for a grill in the corner, gorgeous flower beds and plants, and, of course, stairs so the kids and dogs can all run up to the deck, beg for burgers and go back out to the yard when they're done eating.
To prep myself for building the Deck Of My Dreams when I find and own that Little Pink House, I used Flood® Wood Care's Staining Made Simple widget. I started out with the type of wood I was using, how many square feet my project would be, my wood's current condition, what I wanted the finish to look like and even where I wanted to buy my products – just by entering my ZIP code and selecting the store closest to me!
When I finished going through the widget I found that I'd need Flood® Wood Care's Cleaner/Brightener Concentrate and Transparent Wood Finish. There were even instructional videos to accompany the projects! Here's the one for the transparent wood finish:
Easy, huh? This is what I love about technology – you can actually instantly view instructions on seemingly impossible projects. Anything from a small piece of furniture to a humongous deck can be completed using these products and videos!
