Painting the Deck

I painted our deck! I had a lot of questions on how I did it, and let me tell you, it was simple! So, I figured I would round up everything in a blog post. It’s absolutely amazing the difference this afternoon project made.

Type of paint 

I used a paint called Advanced Deckover by Behr. When purchasing this paint you’ll find it comes in different textured finishes. I chose smooth. 


There were lots of beautiful color options. This time I picked Rose Beige. It’s the perfect rosey neutral! Never be afraid of paint colors! It’s just paint! 

How I painted

You might be surprised when I tell ya, I used a big ol’ paint brush! I bought a roller and a brush but ended up taking the roller back. I started with under the stairs then painted the stairs and next I just painted board by board working my way towards the end of the deck. 


This project didn’t take long at all. I didn’t exactly time myself but I would estimate it took me less than 3 hours for our 12×12 deck. Of course the time it takes will differ depending on the size of the space.


1 – Make sure you clean your deck off first. 


2 – Also, make sure you have some great music or a good audiobook to enjoy. I listened to an awesome audiobook and it made the time go by pleasantly! 

The End

It was TOTALLY worth it! I feel like the deck looks like new again and I’m loving the color change! Tag me if this blog post helped you in your deck painting process!
