UPDATE: Thanks to weather, and no time. This project has been a bit dalayed, but as of today we have cut wood! :) And last night got the other piece of wood stain. I think I should have painted instead, but what done is done.

Got everything, but flooring, at home depot! I have to get more supply than I orginally thought, there that reason and Home depot is like the adult verison of Toys R Us; I want everything there, almost. lol.

Well, I was going to upload picture ,however, my computer, apparenly, thinks other wise; so as soon as my computer says it's okay I'll have picture up.

Thanks I love the color too! And I can't wait either.

Also learned water will wip off once the paint is dry. Finished putting on the second coat, fast forward to few hours later big storm hit left the wood on the porch ran out to get and the water just wip off.
