Staining a deck that’s gone green

Dear Chicago House,

Eeek one of your decks has gone green, you know I am not that keen on brown but when you go and try to disguise it with green gunk,  well I just have to do something. Your deck need to be restored to it’s brown state …there are some things that do look good brown! I bet you never thought you’d hear me say that.

So  I have been out there hosing you down and scrubbing with a broom (the power washer decided it wanted a day off and refused to switch on) and then gave you a couple of coats with lovely rich brown (yes brown!) stain.

Are you ready to see the result?

There is a place for brown after all.
