It's been a goal of mine to refurbish the porch ever since moving into the house, and I think we finally have it done....just in time for the hot, buggy weather here in the south! We do get some nice evenings and mornings, though, so I think we will have to pick our times to sit outside.
The first step was sanding the floor and putting a fresh coat (or 2) of paint on.
The columns on the other side didn't extend all the way to the stairs leaving a big gap where the railing should have gone.
Now, all I need is a glass of sweet tea, a fan and a good book and I will be set for the summer!
