I am so happy with how it turned out, and am so happy it's done :) Here's the before:
And the finished product:
The Mr. replaced the front and side of the main beam with wood (was ugly aluminum soffit), sanded, primed, and painted it smooth. The colour is a gray with a touch of blue although in this light a lot of the blue comes through. As with most paints it changes depending on the time of day!
Aside from that big accomplishment, we had a great little weekend with an extremely productive Saturday morning, followed by some time at a friend's pool for the evening. Sunday we had a nice big breakfast, put the finishing touches on the porch, and then went for a bike ride to see some friends and then popped by the Toronto Jazz festival in the beaches. It was a gorgeous day on Sunday (humidity is gone!) and we finished it off with a delicious meal of Maple-Dijon glazed grilled salmon, sauteed kale, corn on the cob and some bread. YUMM. Hope you all had a lovely and relaxing weekend.
