Many downpours made this project last forever. The nice result made it all worth it.
a job well done
I'm so happy we went ahead and did this. I just can't believe the improvement. The good news is that we managed to accomplish this without barricading our dog inside the house for the duration. She somehow managed to stay out of the way and we finished without pawprints or using her tail as a paintbrush. Thank you Molly.
