Staining Stairs

Freshly Scraped and Being Stained Stairs
Some projects require a significant amount of preparation before they can be executed.

I discovered this on Friday as I was scraping my parents deck in preparation for an updated coat of stain. It had been years since the deck had been stained, and they had been waiting for good weather for at least a year. The decking planks had been stained a week or so ago and now it was time for the tails and stairs.

I spent a good afternoon with my Dad scraping and staining. He was relieved after a few hours by Chris and we nearly completed the project before it was time for dinner and the evening festivities. There remains only one section of remaining. Hopefully we can knock it out the next time we sojourn to Ithaca.

Hard work is good work.
