i (finally) finished putting on a new fresh coat of deck paint down on my back deck the other weekend… and man, what a shitload of work that ended up being — seriously, hopefully i’m good for the next 5-7 years because i really don’t want to do that again anytime soon…
for this past weekend, i had the company BBQ on saturday, and then really wanted to get this pergola i bought at Lowe’s put together… so i enticed a couple friends to come over and gimme a hand with some beer/pizzas, and got this badboy assembled.
took the above pic today, and since it was almost dark by the time we finished yesterday, here’s a couple snaps i took last night.
have to say, the whole thing came together really damn nicely… took quite a bit longer to assemble, not to mention running the lights around the top edging… drilling and installing an ibolt to hang the outdoor fan from, and running the extension cords — ended up drilling two holes in the deck and running it underneath, along with installing a new “bubble” outlet with a cover so it’s protected from the weather and doesn’t short out all the effin time, etc…
lots of work, mang!
…but g’damn, it was worth it :)
