Not Quite There Yet

Another great day to work on outside projects, so I went back out to continue the front porch, almost done but not quite! I was able to get two coats on the floor over Memorial Weekend (that's why it doesn't have the fresh painted look) today I finished both coats on the rails in this area and hopefully i will get the rest done on Friday or Saturday. The next time I post a picture of this porch it will have a book and a beverage waiting for me to sit and enjoy.

Here is the entry door I shared several posts ago, it is not exactly what I had in mind, but more welcoming, don't you think?? I know I would like a "Primitive" look, but I decided that I would take my time and gather things. I am sometimes guilty of going out and buying stuff when I already had stuff that would work, so this is a work in progress.

Tomorrow it's supposed to rain... hmmm I think I hear my sewing room calling my name :0)

Have a great evening.


  1. Your deck looks really nice. I'm often guilty of buying something when if I just looked around I could have used what I alraedy have. Love the hanging planter and the plants in the little stand.

  2. Hi Denise. Your deck looks very welcoming. I should have stained mine this year, too, but I think that will end up being a chore for next summer. I'm sure your weather is very hard on the deck as is ours.
    I also like to decorate the outside with things I already have and I go for a more country look rather than a very modern manicured look. I still end up being a few new things each summer though. Spray paint is my #1 outdoor decorating must have.
    Hope you can sit now with that drink and book.

  3. Everything looks really good to me! Your deck certainly is a great place to "just be". The entry way does look inviting. I need to do some things for my back door.

  4. Everything is coming along so beautifully. Can't wait to see it with your book and ice tea waiting for you.


I really enjoy hearing your comments, sorry I had to turn on the "word verification" but I got my first comment from a "non-person".......I prefer comments from people.
