Front Porch Makeover!
Now this is a little trick that everyone should keep in their arsenal. You know how I think a little paint can do anything- well, this is proof! My front porch is ROUGH to say the least. 35 years of wear and tear on this puppy were starting to show, and instead of replacing it, we needed a quick fix. So this past weekend, after a trip to the paint department at Lowe's and Depot and a day of painting by Patty and I, we have a brand new (looking) front porch!! We did the "color match" through Valspar paint with a piece of siding from our house, so we have the exact color as the siding (for the railing) and were able to use that extra paint to cover blemishes and re-paint the door frame to brighten it up. I think it looks so much cleaner...
I started this blog so that my friends and family around the country (and Canada) could see the projects we are working on and ones we have completed. Sending emails with before and after picture attachments was getting old!
My Aunt always told me to take pictures of crafts I've completed because when you give them away, you forget all the hard work you put into the finished product....so this is for you Auntie. Everything from house renovations, sewing, recipes and paintings will be posted. I hope y'all enjoy!!
