Covered deck almost completed

We got all of our inspections done for the covered deck on Friday so I got to painting this weekend.  I managed to get all of the underneath and the columns done but there is no way that I will attempt to do the outside.  I am very afraid of heights and I am a klutz.  I always seem to manage some kind of injury in all the projects that I do.  I was pleasantly surprised that all went well with the painting.

  I love my new ceiling fan.  I have never had one outside before.  Hopefully I can get the railings done by this weekend so I can get it decorated a little bit.  They scuffed them up some so I will be sanding and repainting them.

Here is the deck before with the pergola on it ( so ugly).

Now the after (before painting of course).

Even the humming birds are happy.  I was able to get my feeder back up on Friday and they came right to it.  I was able to get a picture of one this morning.  Sorry for the picture looking dark the sun wasn't all the way up yet.
Now if we can only get going on the master bathroom again.  I put it on hold so I could get started on the covered deck.  It is not easy when you work 6 days a week and are trying to renovate at the same time.  I just hope it will get done by Thanksgiving since I still have the bath tub in my dining room.
