The Final Phase

Remember that porch we were adding on to our house? Well, it has been a while since I’ve done an update! We are about 98% done with it. We finished building, painting, and staining back in the fall. SO much blood, sweat, and tears went into this project but in the end it was totally worth it. Andy deserves an award for everything he did for building this!

As you can see we still have to stain the lattice and part of the stairs. We also need to do some landscaping around the porch.

Once we get a tree and a few flowers planted it will be perfect! It is hard to believe this is what our house looked like a year ago:

A few weeks ago we too advantage of Home Depot’s Presidents Day sale they had on their outdoor furniture. We debated between two sets but thought this Thomasville Palmetto Estates set would be the best.  We of course didn’t pay $1,300 for it, we got it for $699 shipped!

We are one chair short because when Andy went to put one together he noticed the arm was broken. Home Depot was more than happy to send us the replacement arm so hopefully it will be here soon!  I can not wait to spend summer evenings on the porch! I have the perfect view of our quiet street.

Our plan is to have everything complete this spring, that way we can enjoy our summer nights. This only leaves me to wonder what other project my husband will come up with!

For your entertainment I added what, I’m sure, my cats were thinking:

Happy Thursday, xo!

    You guys both did an amazing job well done! My friend and I take walks around Denver and want a porch like yours! I can’t wait to see how you decorate for Halloween, Christmas, and of course cool summer evenings with Graeter’s! xoxo love the cat captions :) haha!
