Late Sunday morning DH decided we'd get the arbors stained/sealed. I hadn't realized he was going to help me with this project. I figured it would just be me and DD working at it. But, he did the spraying and I went over it with a 2nd coat and touch ups with a brush. The sprayer was so-so. It was a cheap one (figured we could just throw out when done, if necessary) and I think the issues with it was more user error than anything, because by the second arbor he did much better with it.
It was still an all day project that was quite a bit of work! I'm glad he was able to spray the majority of it all. DD got home from work after he had sprayed the second (larger) arbor, so then she helped me put a second coat on it.
Happy to be done and I think they look beautiful!
