Refurbished Back Deck

This was honey-doo much overdue. I have been avoiding this for way too long. The old decking was 12 years old and I had not made much of an attempt to stain/protect it. The result was premature replacement. I turned out to be a labor of love because I made it look much better than the original look. I replaced cheap 2X4 railing with the vinyl type that doesn’t need any maintenance (except for an occasional pressure washing). The old floor was just planks placed lengthways but I angled the floor when I put it down. Every bit of the work is a first for me. I also place some cap solar pole lights that really make things look nice in the evening and at night. I do this kind of work but not specifically on a deck. I think it came out kinda well. I made a couple itty-bitty booboos though…Mitch

That’s a beautiful deck you built. It looks like a wonderful place to enjoy a cool evening and a cup of morning tea/coffee. Now all you need are some plants in containers to bring in some color and soften up the straight lines.

Very nice job. Honey-do lists are long, but it looks like you get some mileage out of this one. Nice work.

Thanks Munch, nice looking deck! Are you keeping it “natural” or is there a finish coming later? Thanks for the post.

Nice deck, I like the angled surface. How are the boards attached? I don’t see any screw holes.

The deck looks great. Way to get in there and figure out how to create something of beauty for the family to enjoy!
