We have a second level deck off the back of our house as well as a lower deck that covers a county drain. Both were in horrible condition...the top deck swayed when you walked on it...it was scary. This spring we finally had them resurfaced. Our contractor was able to tighten the underneath boards and just replace the top surface boards and top of the handrails. It is so much better and safer!
Here are the before pictures....
And now the afters...
One of my favorite features of our new deck space is the lighting. Michael figured out to how use these poles from Home Depot to string lights around the space. They are also removable if we ever decide we want to take them down.

It has basically been raining in Richmond all month long so it was hard to get the best pictures! We have managed to eat dinner out there a few nights and hosted a nieghborhood party on Saturday night and thankfully the rain ended and people could be outside. I think we are going to really use the space this summer and fall!
