Well I had a bash at the polyfilla/pva method of doing the external finish on the old Garden Pavillion. Also gave the windows and doors a final coat of paint as well.
The polyfilla was quite a fun way, but oh boy did I make a mess with it, was flying everywhere! I started off with a brush but soon got fed up with that, and ended up using my hands, very messy indeed! It looks better than I thought it would and I think I will leave it alone! Not even sure I will paint it either. Just sitting here waiting and praying it doesn't all crack and fall off as it dries! Fingers crossed! I think the windows will be ok and even the old patio doors (that are just now a large window lol) with the strut in place looks ok, well it will have to as I can't replace it!
That's really been my mornings work so far, just got to leave it alone, i keep fiddling with it but must have hands off!
