Our Newly Painted Dock {makeover}

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see our disclosure here.

If you have been following us for a while, you know we rent a seasonal campsite on the lake for the summer months. Unfortunately, we were invaded by gypsy moths this past summer and June and July were total nightmare months at the camp. We literally didn’t spend any time outdoors as the poop was disgusting! Anyway, today we are sharing our newly painted dock and deck compliments of Sherwin-William’s SuperDeck.

Our boat dock is pretty old and I am truly amazed at how fabulous this paint covered.

I mean, I know from my previous DIY painting projects that paint can do wonders for a space but I was a little nervous about the dock. haha. I wasn’t sure there was much hope!

Here is the before.

The paint is really thick so it actually filled in the grooves and cracks of the wood nicely.

There were parts of the deck that would actually hurt your feet, kind of like splinters popping through the wood but since we painted it, the wood is so much softer on your feet.

We applied two coats and what a drastic improvement.

This space is a bit difficult to photograph as it’s either covered in sun or completely shaded.

It’s so pretty in the afternoon on the dock because the sun peeks through the trees and creates a beautiful scene. I love how the brown wicker furniture looks with the slate colored paint. (ps. it’s marked down 77% right now!!)

I filled a round tray from HomeGoods with drinks and pumpkins and it fits perfectly on the small coffee table. There are so many rectangular lines on the furniture that the round tray helped soften the table.

It’s amazing what a coat of paint will do for a space. A substantial improvement right?

Our dock is now a place we love to sit and hang out. Unfortunately, the camp will be closing up soon as Mother Nature will be arriving with cold miserable weather.

I picked up the oversized orange floor pillow at HomeGoods and while I need to bring it in each night, my son loves sitting on it. I always use my indoor items outdoors and throw them in the outdoor storage box at night.

You may have seen our post from a few weeks ago where we shared our new Park Model Home.

Here is deck and lattice with the new gray paint. This part of the Park Home faces the water.

Here is our old camper with the decks painted brown by Sherwin Williams.

We added more lattice this year to the deck and painted it white to coordinate with the gray deck color.

As much as I loved our old camper with the brown tones and coordinating deck color, I think the gray and white Park Model Home along with your newly painted deck, is my favorite.

Here is the back version of the Park Home facing the road. The gray and white really look fabulous.

We recently added a screen room which is so nice! Hopefully the gypsy moths stay away next summer but if they don’t, it will be nice to have the screen room.

Lattice is so expensive so we ended up painting a bunch of old lattice that we had left over from our barn project at home and not only does the lattice hide the unsightly underparts of the deck and park home, it kind of ties in the white shutters on the home. Some people are not fans of lattice on decks but we are! So as you can see, our campsite deck and dock have had a couple spruce ups thanks to Sherwin-Williams. I can’t believe we are closing up soon at the camp but summer will be here again before we know it. PS. If you didn’t see yesterdays post, be sure to check it out.

  1. Wow! The new paint really makes the dock look gorgeous. That wood looks pretty dry and rough before you painted it. It looks beautiful styled for Fall.

  2. Did you paint the entire deck with a brush?

    1. Yes but there was two of us. We tried rolling and it wasn’t filling in the cracks good enough. It was pretty easy with 2 people ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Your dock is amazing. What a beautiful space and it looks even better painted the new color.

  4. I always hate to see summer end, I’d hate it even more if I had your beautiful dock! It looks amazing – so cozy and inviting!

    1. Thank you Jeanie! Summer will be here again before we know it. It feels like just yesterday I was pulling out the Christmas stuff. I can’t believe it’s here again!

    Hi, I was linked to your web-site on a search for “Sherwin Williams Superdeck” stain. Just wondering, when did you apply this product ? How is it holding up now ?

    Thanks

    Does King’s Canyon have any purple or green undertones? We are looking for a true gray with no weird undertones.
