We've had some beautiful June weather this past week.
The kind as my DH puts it, we dream of all winter.
June means my painted daisies are in bloom.
Oh how I love their vibrant pink color.
June also means school has finally ended and my building construction teacher hubby has time to do a few projects around our home as well.
One of his first priorities is this peeling and nasty looking fencing that surrounds our back patio.
Five years ago, he scraped it, primed it and painted it.
It had been a nasty beige color.
It was quite the job and looked really pretty for awhile.
However as of late it has taken a turn for the worse.
We looked into replacing it with the white vinyl fencing and priced it out.
However it's very pricey and we really didn't find one we liked that well.
So my resourceful hubby took down every single piece.
( a job in itself.)
He then planed every single piece and applied coats of Thompson Water Sealer.
And just look at the difference it has made.
The wood is cedar as my hubby suspected and I love the different knots and grains.
Sorry this is a little too bright but I think you can see the difference it has made.
And the only cost was the can of water sealer.
He is working on the other side now as well and when he has it all done I will update you with the results.
June is just bursting out all over and I love it.
I could re-run June several times every year and never tire of it.
Have a lovely week my friends,
Joining these great blog parties.
