Staining Pressure Treated Wood

Staining wood can be a PAIN!

The only thing that’s worse is stripping it in 2-3 years!!!


I have a 10 year old retaining wall that’s made from pressure treated wood.

It’s in great shape and I’d like to keep it that way for years to come.

After a little research and some talking with store associates I decided to use Olympic Elite Woodland Oil.

I’m excited to show you the results. Before and after pictures are always FUN :D KEEP READING

Burning your house to the ground…

Get Rid of Spiders

My wife is deathly afraid of spiders.

Unfortunately we get little visitors every spring.

Last April I was sitting in the living room and suddenly heard my wife scream.

After running upstairs I found her pointing to a huge black spider on the ceiling.
