Pressure washing is, pretty much, our favorite summer hobby around here. In our most recent podcast, it was only a half-joke when we say we pressure wash every day. So we were very excited when Briggs + Stratton asked if they could send us one of their newest models and give one away, too! We also snagged a discount code for everyone (!!) I put at the bottom of the post. And with Father’s Day just around the corner, I can’t think of a more perfect gift.
This particular pressure washer (The Briggs & Stratton 2000 MAX PSI* at 1.1 GPM / 3.5 MAX GPM* at 80 PSI – Featuring POWERflow+ Technology™) has a fold down steel frame handle which makes it super compact so we can store it in our deck box and break it out nearly every day.
We’ve had intense wind and pollen this season which leaves our whole yard a mess, but our deck has definitely taken the brunt of it. And even though the Clam Shell color is really good at disguising dirt–there’s nothing like seeing it come clean with a pass of the pressure washer.
In addition to all the normal, regular, addictive things we pressure wash (the siding, driveway, sidewalk, patio furniture, windows, brick, trash cans, grill, garage doors, and even our cars!), occasionally there’s something inside that piques my interest–can I pressure wash that? should I? I have to try!
Our most recent backyard BBQ was the day after a huge rainstorm and our entry rug got riddled with muddy footprints–especially right by the front door–as a result. The rug is made up of low profile FLOR squares (their Suit Yourself line in Linen) that have a rubber backing and I brought each square outside to the freshly washed driveway (can’t stop. won’t stop.) for a good pressure wash.
One feature that’s super nice about this Briggs and Stratton pressure washer is the Onboard Detergent Tank that allows you to easily store and dispense cleaning detergents and the 7-in-1 Nozzle (that blue knob at the end) which lets you adjust pressure settings and apply soap with one-handed operation at the nozzle.
The difference is staggering–definitely a success. You can check out more pressure washing tips from Briggs and Stratton, right here.
As I mentioned at the beginning, although pressure washing is definitely not just for the guys, I don’t know one guy that wouldn’t love one of these powerhouses for father’s day. On Amazon, you can use code 15CLJ at checkout for 15% off any of Briggs and Stratton’s new 2017 gas or electric pressure washers (we have and love this one!), or any of the other models listed below, too!
And! As promised, we’re excited to give away one of these Briggs & Stratton S2000P featuring POWERflow+ Technology to one lucky reader! Enter through the Rafflecopter Widget below (prize ships to continental US only) and we’ll announce the winner Monday!
We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.

Almost daily I get asked what I would call my home style. I don’t like to box myself in, but I definitely lean Modern Traditional with an emphasis on comfort when it comes to our home. This especially came up when I shared our Powder Bath Reveal on the blog. I think it changes slightly […]
