Deck Revival: Rehabilitating and Transforming a Neglected Outdoor Space!

Aug 2, 2023 | Home & Shop Improvement

I embark on an exciting journey of reviving my neglected deck into a stunning outdoor space! In this episode, join me as I take on the challenge of rehabilitating my worn-out and weathered deck seating, and turn it into a beautiful and functional space for relaxation and entertainment.

Over the years, my deck has suffered from exposure to harsh elements, leaving it in dire need of some TLC. I got a plan to bring this deck back to life. I’m repairing the damaged structure of the seating and re-using the deck boards and bringing you along for the journey.

Here are some of the tools I used in this video.
