The first 2 pics could be my deck! Exact same decking, railing, balusters, everything. I did a doubletake when I clicked on the first pic. Thanks, this gives me some real life pics to show my wife. My wood is also very old and "thirsty" I know it will take a good bit of stain/sealant to cover it all. I haven't sealed it for two years, but in the past it has taken about four gallons of sealant. It's a big job, but I have to do it wether I stain/seal or just seal. My wife will have the last word on if it gets color or not, but I'll be the one doing all the work!

I am thinking that when we refinish our deck we ought to put some sort of light colored epoxy coating on it, since it is around the pool and the deck will burn the hide off your feet in the summer - I have to put outdoor rugs on it so the kids can walk out there. Don't mean to hijack, but anybody painted their deck?

Whew!

TankGirl, our old deck was painted about 8 years ago. The wood couldn't breathe anymore, so it rotted. After only a few years, the paint peeled up in big sheets. There was no way I was going out on it this year, since it swayed a bit! So we just got a nice new one, and now we will definitely stain it instead of painting.

Well that is good to know, Deb. Maybe we'd be better off replacing the deck with that composite recycled milk jug stuff.
