a little shade for the summer

My daughter Christine and her husband Ed just moved into a new house (new to them, that is) in downtown Phoenix this past February. It is an absolutely amazing historic home with so much charm and character. Other than a little bit of paint and giving it their own lovely style, they really had to do very little to it. The one major project it just underwent was adding some cover and rails to the huge back patio. So, I thought you might enjoy a little before and after. What do you think?

Any thoughts on the next step? Stain it? Paint it? What color?
Now who would like to sign up for a painting party?

Be sure to check back in this afternoon for a chance to enter our next fantastic giveaway!

Heavens, I don't know - paint the trim color is my first thought but mostly - it's great. The need for shade is great. I can see vines growing up the posts and across the top. Lovely addition. Absolutely great house.

Love the home, and that patio is going to be fantastic! Make sure and show us the after photos of them relaxing when all the work is done!
