The house retrospective: Day 4. The Porch
A response in avoidance of the Daily Post’s Writing Prompt https://dailypost.wordpress.com/dp_prompt/too-soon/
As we move towards the end of the exterior painting part of the retrospective, I want to show the porch before moving on to the final showing of the front of the house.
The porch of the house was, like the south side, a mess when we bought the house. This will also be another, separate post, but suffice it to say, it took a good year for our carpenter to put it to rights so we could move on to the painting stage.
Here we are during the scrape and sand phase.
Moving on to priming. The outside of the porch (the curved section) was already primed from when our carpenter rebuilt it, so less prep for the painters!
And now, painting commences.
We tried out a couple of column colours (namely, red, black and green) before settling on the red.
And now, the finished product. I love it!!
