You would have used maybe a gallon brushing it. So after you are done buying all this paint, how much have you saved? Just curious.

Thought I mentioned it but bright white, or white white, can be fairly unforgiving.

Railing looks nice though. I assume other than using more than expected---and we warned you about spraying---the Woodscapes itself is working out alright?

Yes, I am very pleased so far with the woodscapes. It is going on very nicely. You know with the time we are saving with spraying, I don't mind paying the extra for paint.

3 1/2 (32oz) containers of wood filler later. It is looking good.

Question: we really like the way the unbrushed second coat looks on the area between the spindles. Is it okay not to brush that area?

Oh yeah: it was (extra white)

You mean the clouds in one picture or the lawn or deck showing between them in the others?

I am not sure I understand what you are talking about but to get an even stain film distribution you should backroll or backbrush everything.

LOL, this area...

You can see the brush strokes even on the second coat.

Sd is right about back brushing for uniformity. But, if you are getting a good first coat, and brushing full all the knot holes, rough spots,defects in the wood, with the first coat; then there is no real reason( in terms of coating integrity ) that you have to back brush the second Coat.

Back brushing is about getting a uniform coat. It's also important on wood because it helps work the material into the wood, and promote a good bond. First coat is a must, second coat not so much.
If you are happy with the way it looks on the second coat not brushing, it won't hurt it not to, as long as your getting an even coat with the sprayer.
I'm glad this is working out for you. Spraying is faster and (to me) a lot easier.

We are done! (with the railings) Woohoo.

I am going to sand the facia boards this weekend. I decided to stain them to match the decking. If I like it, then I will hold off on wrapping it with Trex.

Then we should be able to dig footings, get the poles set and lay the decking.

Then it is on to the next project...the pergola!

Thank you to everyone for all of your help!

Hopefully this will cause your crazed neighbor to STHU! Looks great. I think the facia looks to be in great shape and solid staining it to match the new decking should look really nice.

Yeah, right !?!? But....technically, it will still be three different colors. LOL

Thank you! I did buy some woodscapes and had it tinted to match the Trex for the decking. Hopefully, I can get to that this weekend.

Slowly, but surely!

Wow, now that I can see the scope of this project, I can see why you wanted to spray it.
