Staining the back porch

It was a busy weekend, between finishing the front steps to power washing and staining the back porch, which turned out looking worlds better.

Outside of the steps, this was also a new challenge as I, for one, have never used a power washer, which now that I have I want to power wash everything. Nor had I ever stained a porch, not that I don’t know how to use stain on smaller projects, but this looked like it might be a daunting task, especially close to the house itself.

Surprisingly it didn’t take as long as I imagined, clocking in at perhaps an hour and a half from the moment I opened the stain till I was washing the brush.
