Back in early September, Daisy's parents were getting finished with their enclosed outdoor deck. Since most of the wood was brand new, it was time to stain the wooden boards. I work nearby so I sometimes drop Daisy off if both her and her mother have the same off-days. So we just happened to see them doing it that day.
They were using Thompson's WaterSeal in a Semi-Transparent finish in the color Autumn Brown. I'll be honest, I've never trusted Thompson's Waterseal much, but this one is a little different from the inexpensive clear coats they make. The "regular" Thompson's WaterSeal doesn't last very long in the South with the brutal summers we have. It's also water-based, so the clean-up is easier.
