Decking Out the Porch Swing

Decking Out the Porch Swing

With the help of David’s parents, we finally got the porch swing David built me all ready for the beautiful warm weather! First, we took an old twin mattress we had and bought a zippered, waterproof mattress cover. David wove rope through the links to soften the look and we were deciding between the natural...
Porch Ceiling

Porch Ceiling

  Sorry for the long gap in blog posts.  I returned to work this past week and it’s been crazy!!  Anyway, here are some pictures of progress on the back porch– now we have a ceiling!   You can still see the stuff from the old ceiling in there: And the new beams:   We...
We Sorta Have A Back Porch!

We Sorta Have A Back Porch!

Lots of progress on the sun room conversion to back porch to share with y’all!  I am in love with how it’s turning out.  I can see David, Evie and me hanging out back here next summer… so cool! Originally we had 4×4 posts as columns supporting the roof on our new back porch. But...
New Roof On the Back Porch

New Roof On the Back Porch

  Hi there!  Hope everyone’s 2015 is off to a great start! These pictures are old but I hadn’t gotten around to posting them yet so here goes: we have a new roof on our back porch, and we stained our French doors! Keep in mind, we didn’t do this part of the renovation ourselves....
No Walls Left Standing

No Walls Left Standing

Behold, the lack of any walls (or roof for that matter) on our former sun room, soon-to-be back porch! The room– or porch– seems muuuuuch bigger to me, which makes sense now that it’s not restricted by walls anymore. At first we were going to use 4x4s (shown) as the columns but they looked/ felt...

  Hello! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  Evie gave us a lot to be grateful for last night by sleeping 9 hours… she’s such a champ.  😉 Anyway, thought I’d share with you some pictures from a little while back of our sun room project!  If a picture speaks a thousand words, I’ll...
Adding French Doors

Adding French Doors

Step 1 for turning the sun room into a back porch was to separate the kitchen from the sun room.  Remember here when we started taking apart the cutesy arch?  We kept taking it apart and discovered it was perfectly cut for French doors! We decided to add glass paneled French doors to let lots of...
Thinking About the Sun Room...

Thinking About the Sun Room…

    Now that we have no more kitchen floor, we decided to see what other damage we can do to our house.  Figured we’d start with the sun room.  It’s been not much other than a storage room/ project room/ dog room/ mud room to us since we moved in– mostly because it’s always...
