Project Complete: Deck

We're excited to announce that we've finally completed a project that we've started!

Over Labor Day weekend we purchased deck refinishing supplies and started what would become a 4-step process of cleaning, cleaning, cleaning, and sealing. It looks like we tore down our old deck and put up a new one. Although we didn't take "before" pictures, I did find a picture of the deck that was used while it was on the market. Before, the wood was grey/brown, during the cleaning process is was nearly white and now it's a nice shade of well, clean wood. And my, it does repel water:



Here is the next best thing to a "before" shot:

That is _absolutely_ awesome! We tried to seal the deck when we moved in, but it didn't turn out anywhere near as nice as yours did (and obviously it didn't last). That'll probably last for quite a while!

Just want to let you know that I printed those invites on an inkjet. Then I did that crazy heat embossing! I made the stamp for the side and sent it to Indianapolis Rubber Stamp Co. She used that heart design on other things like napkins, table cards, etc. (I'm sure you've seen that heart design before!!) so I just traced it. Hope everything is going well!
