Good ole fashioned Before & After. That is what this post is all about.
The scene of the crime…our deck.
We have a deck. I hate it.
I don’t like going onto it…a little because I have a fear of heights (it’s up a story). a little because I feel stuck on it (no stairs going down to the ground level outside). and a little because it is NASTY. So I avoid it like the plague. Like the plague and the flu and politicians in general. and telemarketers. and cream soda. (yes, I know it is strange but I do not like cream soda…at all.) Anyhoo…so wanna see the monstrosity of the grossness that is our deck and how we pressure washed the sucker? well…ok.
Looking bleak. and gray. and NASTY. Pressure washing is one of my favorite things to do…renovation-wise. It is sooo immediately gratifying. Like painting except wetter.
It took me two days to finish. Then it took Jeremy another day to do the outside of the railings.
I think the following photos speak volumes about the nastiness factor…
that’s when it was still wet.
and when it dried, it looked even drastic-er. drastic-y-er. more drastic. yeah I was homeschooled.
why hello Nasty…my name is Katie Bower. Nice to BLOW YOU AWAY WITH MY HIGH PRESSURED WATER HOSE!
And now for the beautimous afters:
Yup. Like a brand-new deck. It makes me hate it a little less. a little.
Let’s look at sidebysides…shall we?
So have you pressure washed anything lately?
