My girlfriend from Nantucket visited me at Old Farm as our first winter was fading. She gave me a great piece of advice which was to power wash our moldy deck and chairs which looked very discouraging. I bought a power washer early that spring, to transform the deck and two chairs that came with it (I spray painted the iron table that also came with the house). It was such a success, that I bought some used outdoor teak furniture, which needed power washing and sanding, to complete our outdoor sitting spaces. The lime colored umbrella and striped chair cushions in the last photo, came from Pottery Barn.
