It's been over three weeks since I mentioned we were almost finished prepping our
deck and we'd decided on a new look, a solid stain. Well, several rainy days delayed
the start of our makeover and gave us a little more time to ponder our decision. You
won't be surprised, we changed our mind and are going in a different direction and
I'm so excited!!!!
We're going with black. And, yes we've considered: It may retain heat and be hot,
it will most likely fade with the intense Colorado sun, it will take extra care because it's
going to show doggy footprints and debris and we're still going for it. First we tried a
light gray sample and it didn't do it for us. I was drawn to black from day one and we
painted a small sample and knew the second we saw it.
Take a look at some of our inspiration...

We've decided on a semi transparent stain, here's a sample on our deck. We
were ready to start this afternoon as another rain shower put a damper on our project
but the forecast is looking good for the next couple of days!
Black stain - would you, could you?
Or do you think we're crazy? :)
