REPOSTING FROM LAST YEAR – THE DECK STILL LOOKS GOOD AFTER 1 SEASON!
A few weeks ago we purchased Deck RESTORE from Home Depot because it was time to start the outdoor projects and staining the deck was #1 on my list. In all honesty, I don’t like using stain because it’s messy, time consuming and never seems to last long enough for me. Staining usually highlights the imperfections of the wood, however, this product although a bit pricey hid the imperfections, wasn’t messy or time consuming, I just hope it lasts longer than 2 seasons!
My OOTD was thrifted from my oldest son’s closet – he put the tshirt and shorts in the box slated for a Goodwill donation – lol
We purchased the 5 gallon container (cheaper than the kit which contained only 2 gallons and a roller)
a Restore Roller; we had a pan and brush in the garage.
The color is Adobe
Because the product was sitting in the garage for 2 weeks, I had my son do a little “remixing”
Swept the deck to remove dust and debris
It wasn’t necessary to Power Wash the deck, so just used ammonia and water to clean off surface dirt
The lid was very easy to open once the plastic tab was removed.
I thought I would need pliers which is why they are pictured in the tray above.
Very easy pour – thick consistency
Roll the 1st coat and allow to dry at least 3 hours – it took me a little over an hour to complete.
I went grocery shopping and did the 2nd coat the next evening after work.

From this …
The best part was the easy cleanup with just plain water – definitely beats staining any day!
