The wood we got for the Trim is milled by a local mill owner named Lyle here in Tacoma. We got 1x4" finger-jointed cedar. We chose finger-jointed as we will be painting over it.
Original unpainted trim
WOW!!!!! SO purple! (That was my reaction after painting it--didn't quite look like the paint chip.)
A few finished pieces.
BOY, was I surprised at the brightness of the purple paint after it first went on. I finished all the boards up, but the hope is that they dry darker than they look wet.
We'll see how they look once they're up on the house!! :)
