Painting outdoors has been a wonderful experience this summer, especially since the weather has been so cooperative. At the end of every paint session there is usually a few dribbles of paint left, if not just that, there is enough to cover up a few bare spots on the deck.
Calgary’s weather can have a few unexpected highs and lows all in one day. Weather conditions and foot traffic on the wood deck cause the stain or paint to wear off quickly. Keeping this in mind my good friend Terri suggested a touch up here and there with some bright colours would have an interesting effect. Well! I took her up on the suggestion and this is what happened (the above photo).
The effect has worked well and continues to change throughout the summer as paint layers wear off and then replaced with different colours. The deck is cheerful spot in during the brown seasons and is always a joy to see when shoveling snow off in the winter.
