I can’t even begin to tell you what wonderful weather we have had here the last week, it feels like summer (actually, you never know, it might be our summer! )
In my post Spring cleaning a month ago, I cleaned up the wall around my raised flowerbeds. After this, my patio looked a little forlorn 😦 probably wondering if I had forgotten all about it.
Well I’m happy to say that with this great – and I mean GREAT weather – the perfect opportunity presented itself for a little patio TLC.
He never knew what hit him, before he had time to take a breath, he was stripped bare of furniture, plants and stuff.
One proper clean-up with cleaner and a pressure washer, and my patios hair was standing up in pure shock.
Well we couldn’t have any of that, could we! So next day when everything was dried, out came the sanding paper and my Black and Decker sanding mouse. Throw in a few hours of “elbow crease” and my patio was smooth as a baby’s bottom 😉
Fast forward a couple of days, and about 40 minutes ago I finished putting on the last lick of oil!
The patio is positively radiant! Happy as a clam, in mud at high tide 😉
And here it is! Before and after – and a couple of more, for good measures 😉
