I said we would finish the deck this past weekend but running out of paint on Sunday afternoon put an end to that idea...Slow and steady I guess. Lucky we have a long weekend this weekend to finish things off and maybe even have a look for an umbrella. I've had a look online and found a couple of umbrella possibilities but wow, some of the prices are nuts...Anyway, we do now have a door in the deck wall (you can see the before picture here), leading to the little house where the pool filter and pump live, and every single nail hole on the plinth boards has been filled. I probably could have filled the nail holes before the first coat of paint went on but I find them a bit easier to find with a bit of paint on them.
Also, don't forget to cast your vote in the great frog sprinkler makeover of 2013 (poll is on the right-hand side). Gold was the early favourite but now pink is in the lead!
