My hour a day of grinding paint off the back deck has paid off, and we had reached a point where we had ground of two thirds of the deck, and couldn't do any more without moving all the stuff on the final third back onto the bit i'd done. So it was time to paint it. I spent a final hour just quickly going over everything i'd done to get the light surface rust off that had formed over the past couple of weeks,
and then Lorna came in with her undercoat and painted all the bare metal.
So nice to see it all looking clean and smooth again!
