Outdoor Floors

Over the weekend we had a big push to clean up and refresh our outdoor floors. As part of our front porch mini-makeover, we oiled the mahogany wood porch floor to bring back the shine. I also did a fresh coat of white paint on the porch posts where things were showing some wear after 2.5 years. Even the steps got a second coat or gray paint for extra durability.

Out back it was time to give the deck floor and steps a little TLC too. With all the direct sun, foot traffic, furniture and plant pots, it takes a beating. We bought a whole new gallon of our deck stain in dark brown (actually called wood chip) because we also plan on using it for our patio furniture next. After a good cleaning, I put a fresh coat of stain on the deck floor and the tops of the rails. Now it looks much better and is ready for another season.
