Deck & Patio Maintenace


Welcome back to the 4th edition of the “DIY Housewives“.  I hope your Fourth of July weekend was relaxing.  I think I ate the largest chocolate ice cream cone I have ever had in my entire 47 years.  I told my husband I could eat one of those every day.  This was my daughter’s a couple years ago, but it looked just like this.

Sadly, this isn’t about my ice cream cone though.  This is about “Deck & Patio Maintenance” and of course I threw in a few decorating tips, too.  I mean, why fix your deck/patio up if you don’t plan to decorate it, right?

That’s the fun part.
