Painting the terrace - again

Again, and now it's done fully. There are a few touch up's to do inside the conservatory (what would you call that class room of ours? Conservatory does sound a bit too posh). But all in all the major part of the terrace is now painted.

This is what we had before.

You might remenber we painted the pergola on the other side of the terrace a while ago, but the conservatory side of the terrace was still unfinished. The grid on the right side of the last picture can be removed and I took it out to sand and paint it.

I used the belt grinder for the grid, but sanded the rest of the terrace beams by hand because the grinder is heavy as hell. After the sanding I washed all surfaces and then had a good nights sleep. Next day everything was dry and ready for the first coat of paint. And then second coat of paint. It looks so good now, I'm so happy!


  1. Lovely! And what a lot of work. You astonish me at the amount of work you do -- but oh, the results are worth it.

    I can't think of a better word than conservatory...

  2. Thanks, I've allways thought that in humans the more energy they use the more energy they will have, so using energy will create more energy, to an extent ofcourse. I get so happy from finishing these projects that they don't feel like work at all.

    so conservatory it is...
