A big project on our spring “to do” list is to stain our dock. Yesterday Mr. SP took the afternoon off so that we could head to the lake to put the first of two coats of stain on it. 3.5 hours later, all but a small portion that needs to be reached via kayak was brushed with a coat of stain.
Isn’t the difference incredible?
We used a marine grade stain that Mr. SP found online that got good reviews. The directions called for brushing or spraying the stain. Hand brushing was pretty labor-intensive, especially for the flat spots, thus we are considering rolling the flat parts for the second coat to save time.
The day alternated between sun and clouds. By the time we reached this point in the staining, we both were happy that the end was in sight.
Today’s spring break goal is to put away Easter and do some cleaning. I have a tennis lesson this afternoon and then play in my last tennis contract for the winter season. What’s on your agenda for the day?
