Remember way back this spring when every other post was an update on our backyard?
Yeah, we’re at it again.
We took advantage of the 85 degree temps this weekend to finally finish painting our deck railing. When last we met, it looked like this:
And it’s looked like that since May, with only one section of railings painted. We couldn’t work on it this summer because the paint we chose couldn’t be used above 90 degrees and we didn’t hit 90 til mid-September. Then it rained.
But this weekend’s glorious temps gave us the perfect opportunity to breakout our paintbrushes and get busy.
It took about four hours with Kevin on the roller and me doing the trim work to finish the railings, but I think the effect is gorgeous. All we need to do now is to build in the bar and the deck will be finished.
- Refinish Vintage Metal Rockers
Hang Globe String Lights
- Build Drink ledge on deck
Stain/ Paint deck
- Rehang Gutter Garden
- Sew Pillows
- Paint/Stain benches
Fill and place Tiki Torches
- Spray Paint and Hang Z-Gallerie Lanterns
- Build mobile buffet/bar (maybe something that looks like this?)
- Accessorize (the word just scares me)
If we keep knocking little things off here and there maybe we’ll have the backyard 100% finished by next spring (which would be the 2-year mark for the project… yikes).
What did you do this weekend?
