Hi all! Hope you had a great Labor Day weekend!!
One of the projects we are really hoping to get to this 'fall' (our summer in SF) is to stain and seal our deck. It is badly in need of this! So, in preparation I'm thinking about the overall design we're going for, and what color will work best for us.
This is interesting and has my wheels turning. It's from a recent West Elm catalog, and the overall look is a bit modern for me, but I'm loving the fresh feel of it all! I'm not actually sure how to achieve this look, since our raw wood is just a bit darker than this. Would we need to bleach it? Some research is needed! Also, is it too 'of the moment'? I know it's appealing to me because it's fresh and different, but will I get sick of it? If it ends up being feasible, in many ways a light stain could really make sense for us, given that our furniture will be a mix of old and new and will add some 'weight' to the overall look.
Especially when I see this....
