Bruce and I finally finished the arbor project on Sunday. The calculation on painting time was grossly underestimated. It took around 4-5 hours for completion depending on whether we count the breaks or not. We decided on Rockwood and a Martha Stewart Color Georgia Clay for the accent. Lessoned learned always paint before you assemble the arbor.
I had big plans to get the arbor painted then work on office work. Alas, the painting went on and on forever. Below are some pictures, I took on the first day of summer which was yesterday. I love hanging out in the garden at night.
