Not only did I paint my little drop leaf table for the screen porch project (posted HERE) but I also white washed the floors on the porch!
A few months ago when I decided to redecorate the screen porch (on a shoestring budget), I researched flooring options. This is how the floors looked before:
After looking for a budget friendly option, I decided to stain the wood deck with a transparent stain.
I went to The Home Depot and got a Semi Transparent Deck Stain in Pinto White...
After sanding and thoroughly cleaning the floor, I applied the stain with a sprayer. As I stood back and looked at a few of the boards I just didn’t love it. So after the stain dried for a few minutes, I wiped some of it off with a rag. Now that’s better!
The boards look a bit like drift wood ! I realize this won’t be something everyone likes. Some of you may think: why do I want my floor to look like old drift wood??? I completely understand! But I like it and until we have some extra pennies in our piggy bank this $33.00 option is perfection!
The process was quick even though you can only work with a small section at a time. And seriously, the porch is brighter with the light color floors!
If you can’t replace your porch floors this is a nice cost effective alternative!
Thank you Diana! I soooo love my blog friends they are super creative!
I spent all day yesterday staining all that pressure treated wood that make up the sides of the porch. I used the same semi-transparent white stain from Home Depot, I can’t wait for you to see it!
If you have a covered porch, do-tell, what kind of flooring does it have???
Hugs and smooches Peeps!
