Referring to my Spring Fever is Here…post, I’ve been working on our front porch and I can’t just show you the end results without showing you where we started with this project 10 years ago,
Tear off the skirting, raise and level them bones, board up a broken window to keep the bats out, create some temporary stairs and this is what it looked like;
and that’s not a dead cat, BTW it’s Spook, he still loves to take a snooze on the front porch 🙂 … later we replaced this front door and hired a crew to replace the old rickety porch. Scroll cursor over photos for captions below …..
He did a Great job, wish I had pictures of his progress,( all pics pre-blog up to this point ) then about 4 weeks ago, I painted the wooden rocking chairs and porch swing…
then it looked like this;
That’s when the fever really hit me and I decided to stain the deck and stairs…and heres how that went;
But that wasn’t enough so I kept going…
So can you guess what was next from this picture?
wait for it…………………………………………
you guessed it!!!!
But wait!…..There’s More…………….
Ok finally this is the end product……until next time…
I’m dedicating this post to my mother, who I know is smiling down on me from heaven and is so proud…Happy Mother’s Day to all
