How to Cover  Metal Columns

These metal columns just needed a little updating. Wait for the amazing transformation!

They definitely did the job of holding up the carport, but I knew they could be better!

Next, I attached a foundation to the top and bottom of the columns.

The third step is to attach the plywood boards to either side of the column!
