more to do

front porchfront porch with troughs This is what our front porch currently looks like.  As you can see we have been experimenting with the railing by adding in extra spindles and testing paint colours.  But why work with what we have when we can do something totally new?!  I certainly don’t have enough to keep me busy at the moment [said in a sarcastic tone].

Our good friend Jeremy is a SketchUp master so we asked him to draw up what we want it to look like. Now I just have to make it happen!

I am going to go to the TSC store [my favourite!!!] next week to pick up a couple of those big water troughs to use as planters.

I think that we are also going to paint the door that the previous owner so painstakingly restored to its natural beauty – I know it’s sacrilege isn’t it!

    What an unusual looking storm door – what material is it exactly? Plexi and wrought iron?

      Exactly! I know that it’s strange and because of its uniqueness it’s hard to decide whether to keep it or replace it with something else.
