    So, I went with the Premium Home Depot boards. It cost a little more, but I got the duckets so why not. They have a "mistake" pile of paint/stain so I got a gallon of Behr Premium (as though I would buy anything Premium anyway) stain/sealer for $9. Re-using all the hardware and screws/nuts (that I got gratis from a HUGE Tony Romo fan who is a serious big wheel with Fastenal) from the old blind. All I need now are some cedar and pine bows and I am ready to ROLL Jack!

    If you shop right now, you can spend big bucks on live Christmas trees for the blind!

    We only use juniper. It lasts about the same as your painted pine.
