the pink porch

This is my back porch/covered patio "before" - just a catch all storage area that never seemed inviting no matter what I tried to do out there.

Finally I decided something must be done because I want to be able to enjoy our backyard and patio area in our beautiful spring and summer months.

So Nathan to a pick-ax to the nasty sheetrock ceiling 

and Miles and I took a gallon of pink Kilz and we got busy

These are not the best pictures because I took them with my phone, but I wanted to share the porch progress with you.

There are still many things to do - lights and fans to hang, beams to have painted, rugs to purchase, things to move, problem areas to address, but for now it is coming along...

At least, as said best by Miles (in a tone of awe and amazement,)
" it looks like a ROOM out here now!"


  1. hold on a second...what was that lovely/pink/welcoming/whimsical porch...will i come visit? why yes, yes i will!

    seriously no joke at some point this summer we will sit on that porch and have coffee or tea and talk
