Re: Totally Random Thoughts... (Part II)


I assume your painting them brown to blend in better with the joists
wonder if they will start selling colored ones?
do you paint all hardware on the under side of decks that is exposed to the eye?

Yep. We paint all balconies that are exposed from underneath.

Waterproof pans and soffit are not big there? I guess because of the lake all deck space available is sought after here, they want the underside patio to be nice as well with fans and what not

I don't remember what thread that was where you all were nerding out about your coffee mugs. But it inspired me to try one of those fancy pants $30 stainless mugs. So far, I've tried a hydro flask and an RTIC.
They completely ruin the taste of strong black coffee. Makes it taste like hot water.

yup. And that's how I drink my coffee. Thus "well-aged" ceramic mugs.
Just how it has to be.

Most balconies here are just painted framing. I'm doing 2 right now.

They all strive to deviate from the norm, but collectively swarm to be all the same.

YUP ! Nailed it.

They all strive to deviate from the norm
But collectively swarm to be all the same
To alter image prosthetics are worn
Their primped plastic forms melt in the heat of the light

What do you paint them with? I was asking in the paint forum, but dont think you responded.

I tried an oil based spray can primer and then rattlecan black, but it scratches easily.

Rattle can for primer Graco Dewalt cordless for color
After about a week it doesn't scratch easy. In fact I couldn't get it to scratch with my fingernail.
