Porch Makeover

We've lived in our house for almost 7 years, time sure does fly. We love our front porch, but it needed a little updating! Here's some before shots so you can see the shutters, swing, bench, rocking chairs and the front door (with Olivia's 2nd grade awards!)

Now the porch looks fresh and so much better! Jeff replaced the green shutters with raised panel black ones (after finding out we couldn't paint over the green ones). I painted the furniture and the light fixtures with black spray paint. The front door was bleached out and needed new life, with a little Gel Stain and 3 coats later, she looks so much better. Then we found some cute pillows at Home Depot to tie everything together!

It looks wonderful and it felt great to do it all ourselves! Now, if we could just get a little break from the heat to enjoy it more!

Your porch looks so inviting. Great job. What a great transformation with the door. It looks amazing.
