Stain Your Deck
A run-down deck can really suck the life (and backyard appeal) out of your home. Think staining a deck is better left to the pros? No way! Staining a deck is almost as simple as painting any surface. Sure, there’s a little more prep work involved, but this type of project provides such a drastic before and after, it will all be worth it in the end.

By installing a pet door into an exterior door, you can give them the freedom to come and go as they please and return to feeling like you’re in charge.

As you probably know, over time wrought iron can become pitted, rusty and get a chalky appearance. Instead of pitching it and buying something else, try these simple steps for a brand new look!
