I spent a lot of time priming and painting the window and door trim. I had to redo the two sides and bottom of cedar trim on a bathroom window. The top was excellent but the bottom was slowly rotting( in shade). The first sign was ants. The trim on the back door has a rot spot on the bottom due to rain hitting the deck and splashing it underneath. This will get plastic trim as a replacement. The flower boxes were made from 3/4 and 1/2 MDO, but over time and a lack of replacement paint I'm redoing a couple from birds. I found two dead birds behind the boxes. There is a 3/4 Gap behind the box next to the stucco to allow for air movement. I guess I'll have to close it off a bit to stop birds from being trapped behind. Cedar newel posts I had to repair. They will eventually get replaced, but not this year

I'm probably going to have to add some trim at the bottom. Right now it has the appearance of being top heavy..

 

I'm either going to put a Bama elephant  on the top or just use it to put a plant on in the summer
