Thanks for stopping by and checking in on my progress! This is Week 3 of Calling it Home’s One Room Challenge. You can catch up on my big plan of attack from last week, but the short version is that I’m giving all three of my porches a makeover. The biggest project is the screen porch, which requires some construction along with adding decor. The smaller projects are smaller in scale, but involve painting and adding in some details.
Here is a “before” photo:
Last week we cleaned it out and removed the doors.
So what did I get done this week? Some construction, baby!
I have to admit this one, teensy, tiny thing. We had a contractor do the framing and door installation. Shhhhhh. My husband and I recognized, that due to time constraints and the scope of what needed to be done, it was better to just hire someone to do that job.
We painted the floor a nice gray. We also painted the concrete base of the porch (to the left and right of the stairs) to match the house color. (Do you think we should paint the concrete steps the same color? Or leave them “raw”? I’m debating…)
I ordered the cushions and rug that will go with my rattan loveseat and chairs. Target has a really big selection of outdoor pillows, cushions, and rugs, and all at great prices.
