The Trex was actually our second choice. We wanted Veranda which is only sold at Home Depot - (the You Can Do it - WE WON'T HELP Store) - but they took 5 weeks to tell us the price and when they could deliver it. Then we were told we needed to wait for a special SKU # from the Oahu store which was pushing us into week 7. Then another 6-8 weeks just to get it... if and when we could actually order it. 7 WEEKS? Just for info? It was a comedy or errors. Home Desperate was also 3 weeks late in delivering the windows. So we went to LOWES because we knew they stocked the exact color we wanted. I called the day before going in and found out they had the amount we needed. I walked in the next day, paid for it and was on my way in 15 minutes. All was delivered exactly as we were told Friday morning. It was a FAR more pleasant experience.
The decking is not as red as it looks here, it's more brown. It is also reversible and we plan on using the smooth side. Something about a fake woodgrain on fake wood the is not right. Don't get us wrong, WE LOVE FAKE WOODGRAIN... FAUX BOIS if you will, but not on fake wood.
Stay tuned for more updates soon.
The wood that was on this crate is so beautiful. Just some pressed particle board, but it was so smooth. The turquoise edge also added to it's appeal, and we could see ourselves giving it a good coating of polyurethane using this in the office as bookshelves.The West wall. It looks a bit drab until the railing and exterior lighting go in. We are also thinking of some sort of "island-themed artwork" on this wall inspired by this Ladybug on the home of artist CHARLEY HARPER. We shall see.
