This post is part of Endless Summer at Artsy Chaos, happening only during September!
Wouldn't we all like to keep our outdoor wood surfaces in summer ready appearances all year round? Certainly! I mean, unless you're a fan of the old, faded, peeling grey look in your decks and wood fences. We want people to drive by, stop by and walk by with a "wow" on their face at our gorgeous outdoor wood. Who wouldn't? Ok, we're not that vain but we really do want to protect our wood and make it look great at the same time.
This is where Thompson's WaterSeal enters the picture to provide homeowners with "deck protection" from water damage. We certainly don't want water damage. We want Thompson's WaterSeal. And since Thompson's has been protecting the world's treasures since 1929, like the Parthenon, they certainly are trusted with our outdoor wood fixtures. Lucky for us, Thompson's let us try out their Oxy Foaming Action Exterior Multi-Surface Cleaner and Waterproofer in Sheer Natural Cedar.

Our yard has a mixture of fence with one large section of wood which has never been protected. We chose to use the waterproofer on the wood fence instead of a deck, but the concept/principles are the same. Here are some before pictures:
We were surprised at the thick consistency of the WaterSeal with the tint and the vibrancy of the color. It is such a change from the bare wood we're afraid it might be too bright. What do you think? Here are the great after pictures:
We were also thrilled to try the Oxy outdoor cleaner which can be used on a multitude of outdoor surfaces like wood, masonry, concrete, composite, brick, stucco, and outdoor furniture. It works fabulously to clean up and make your outdoor surfaces look almost new! I love that it can be used on outdoor furniture which gets so dirty when it rains. It can even be used on some outdoor fabrics.
