I repainted my deck yesterday. A beautiful deep blue that looks amazing among the green. If my deck looks familiar, it's because I used free pallets to make it. Once again free is my favorite number. I leveled the ground and added sand and placed 6 pallets (screwed together) on it. I found some 1x2 inch striping to place in the slats . Tacked it down with finishing nails and then cover it in an oil base porch paint.
All in all I love my little deck. It's under a cherry tree and I even found a thick piece of wood to go over the very old pond to tie it all together.
I will take another pic when I have it looking pretty.
