Pergola Trellis: First Coat

I naively thought that I could stain the trellis with one coat in 2 hours. An hour per side. I was picturing the lattice as a flat surface. The reality of all those nooks and sides - it took 4 hours to get one coat on.

Carving 4 hours out with a toddler isn't easy. I got the front half done while he was napping, but then I had to the back half with one eye on Ollie while he played. It's supposed to rain all week, so it will probably be the weekend before we can do a second coat.

It already looks so much better, even with one coat on. I'm really looking forward to getting another one on - it's going to blend in so well.
