It's coming along nicely!

When spring finally came, we decided we were going to stain our deck this year. We have never done it since we moved here 4 years ago. It now desperately needs it! We kept ignoring that ask because we have such a huge deck. It's a blessing to have such a great deck, but you can imagine that it doesn't make it very appealing to stain :b

So last weekend, Keith got the pool all ready so that we wouldn't have to worry about it anymore. It's all done and ready to go. It looks so appealing, but the water's way too cold right now!

Then this past weekend, Keith washed the whole deck with the water pressure thingie. Just doing that made a huge difference!! He also got the stain. We'll probably be doing it this weekend; let's hope it's sunny for 3 days straight! The first coat should take a day, then the second another day and then the third day to dry.

We also got a very nice 10x10 gazebo a Loblaws. As soon as the stain is done, it's going up! It'll be nice to be able to be outside even when mosquitoes are out.

The weekend after that, we are finally painting the kitchen and the wall that had to be redone. Keith also finally got me some new hardware for the kitchen cabinets. Not quite the ones I wanted, but they look great nonetheless! No more cheap plastic handles!

All of this was bought with money we don't have, but after 4 years in a house not even halfway painted, we figured it was time to reward oursleves with some nice stuff!
