sam and i learned a really great lesson yesterday. you see, there are two types of deck stain: acrylic and oil. oil seeps in to the wood and highlights it. acrylic paints over it. you guessed it we used the latter. sam and i couldn't figure out what what bothering us about the color and it was that it looks like PAINT.
don't think it wasn't a beast (i'm going to be polite) to stain either. a whole day we certainly don't have down the drain, along with over $100 because we got way too much.
it doesn't seem to bother matilda and guinness.
here sam is using the proper stain. it's night and day. also, we're having our street worked on, thus we postponed the yard sale.
all deck gurus please come forward, or just make me laugh. has this happened to you?
