It being summer and all, I wanted to have a party in my backyard. I have one problem, my wooden fence looks awful, it needs to be stained. Getting a new fence was out of the question, why get rid of a perfectly working fence just because it doesn’t look right. Staining the fence myself, now that seemed like an impossible project. I knew nothing about staining wood. Where would I start? What did I need? How long would it take? How would I prepare the fence for stain? How much stain would I need?
I know, it’s a lot of question, but seriously I know nothing about staining a fence. Now that I’m fixing to be a stay at home mom, my husband is talking about all these things I can do now. Humm, isn’t the honey do list supposed to be the other way around? Oh well, I’m sure there is something I can do right. Me and my two year old, yup she can do the math, and I can drive us where we need to go. LOL, okay it’s not really that funny, but can you picture it… I know I sure can, my toddler would probably be telling me what I need to do next…
You know Mattie does this type of stuff with her dad all the time. She’s the one paying attention to what dad is doing and saying. Normally while I’m standing around, taking or plotting a way to get back inside where it’s nice and cool.. It’s a true story, pinky swear… I’m starting to think this staying home business is going to be harder than I thought, lol.
So you know me, blogger mom and all. Google is one of my best friends, good and any website that can tell me what do to in a situation like this. You know, one that I know absolutely nothing about… Boy-o-boy, am I sure glad there’s Flood.com…
When I came upon http://www.flood.com/ their website answered all my questions with an interactive selection guide. Their step by step guide helps you from the beginning of your project through the completion of your project. The interactive guide asks you questions and by answering these simple questions, they also have pictures to go with the questions to make the selection even easier, you are able to find out how much stain you need, what products you need to protect the wood, it even lets you choose the store you would like to get your products from by entering your zip code.
Thanks to their guide I am able to go into Home-depot knowing exactly what I need for my project, and let me tell you as a woman going in there, armed with all the information from Flood’s Staining made simple guide I felt incredible. I look forward to finishing my fence and starting another project because of the information I learned and the confidence I gained using their Staining Made Simple guide. I’m not going to have to have Mattie, my toddler give me directions so dad doesn’t think I never pay attention to him.
