Every year we try to complete at least one big project in our yard. We have so many plans for
our outdoor space, so it is always nice when we can check one off the list. This year we built an
archway at the back of our property that would look nice and create more privacy.
Because of the scale of this project (and my fear of heights) this was a team effort and I could
not have done it without my husband. I drew up the plans, shopping list, cut list, and cut some of
the lumber. My husband assembled the arch.
It was fun to see it slowly come together!
I was so excited when it was finally built. It is always fun to see something go from a sketch to a
real tangible thing. The arch is 13 feet tall at the peak and 7 feet wide.
Since I avoid going higher than 2 or 3 steps up a ladder, Shane stained the top of the arch. I hog
the Super Finish Max most of the time, so he was excited to use the sprayer again.
I sprayed everything I could reach from the safety of the ground. It is always so satisfying to see
something change right before your eyes. I love my Super Finish Max Sprayer!
I can’t wait to see the arch with vines growing up! As soon as it cools a bit I will get them
We also fixed the gate and stained it to match the arch. It now matches all the other gates in our
This is the best time of year to tackle outdoor projects and furniture makeovers since the
weather is cooling down. What projects do you have in mind this Fall?
