We initially were just going to sand and paint the rafters, but hubby decided that would look crappy. The 2x6s are rough and would need a lot of sanding and filler to make them look nice. So we're taking some thin pine and sheathing each rafter. This will bulk up the 2x6 rafter and look much classier. We still intend to paint the rafters, we're now calling them beams in our minds, a pale vanilla color.
