The saving of our old porch is done! We decided to just keep the old porch swing and Richard is going to put a coat of white paint on it tomorrow and hang it for us. We also plan to add two white rockers as soon as we can find them. We're very pleased!
It's nice to know that the old farmhouse porch has been given new life and will last longer than.. us. :-0
Cedar really makes some wonderful decking!
He also added some siding below the railing down to the ground and painted it and it looks so much better, it used to be concrete foundation and not pretty at all. He put a fresh coat of white on the trim so everything looks snazzy. Pardon the xmas lights that we should have removed. But it's almost time to put them back up.. LOL!
The new red siding. Any suggestions of what we might plant in front of the porch? Or leave it as is?
I walked around and snapped these photos just a bit ago, this is from the other end of the porch looking out to the driveway.
A closer look at the cedar wood.
This is the little forest to the East of our house.
I'm off to swim soon.. then the weekend where they've predicted rain, thankfully. I hope it pours and pours. Do you have any fun weekend plans? There is nothing on our docket, but I'm sure we'll find something to do. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
