Wall partly parged

Sandi_W(7b/8)April 7, 2013

I used an 80 lb bag of mortar yesterday and another today. Got about 24' done. I'm hoping 6 more bags will do it. Then I will use a concrete stain. Trying to decide between solid color and semi transparent.

I like the colour and nice work - adding those textures. I would recommend that you put in a couple or more tones of the same colour. This is so if when the walls starts to get stained, it would just look like the stains would blend in.

It looks great. It's a lot of work but worth it in the end...keep going! I am so envious of your wooded area!!

Thanks memo. I'm right in the middle of my little town, 3 or 4 blocks from the courthouse, but it looks like out in the country. I love it here. We've had a lot of rain so I haven't gotten anymore done, but hoping to start again Monday.
