Installing Thumb Latch Gate Hardware

Another day, another project!  This time I wanted to replace the gate hardware that I had installed on my old door gate.  The hardware I had been using was ok, but difficult to open from the outside so I installed a thumb latch style instead courtesy of D. Lawless Hardware.

Here is the hardware I received:

Extend the Life of Your Deck for Free!

This is a project that worked out even better than I thought it would!  I gave myself a brand new deck surface for free.

How did I do it?  Well, it took a lot of elbow grease but I took my ugly, flaked, checked and cracked deck boards and flipped them all over to give myself a new surface.  With a bit of cleaning and sanding, the deck surface looks so amazing I wish I had done this the year I  moved in!
