Thank you to Susan over at Between Naps on the Porch for hosting another Marvelous Metamorphosis Monday!! Click on the link above to see more amazing transformations!

Boy the new porch is coming along. Just wait till you see it... I am going to have a little fun and just show you before and after pictures of different parts of the project... There is not much more left to be done, and I still can not decide on furniture or what color I want to go with. Should I wait and show you the whole porch after I have decorated . ( might be next summer) or do you want to see the porch now with pictures being added as I decorate? See the door... it is still painted the old color that the house was painted before we put the siding on...

The After ... Now the door has been painted to match the new siding... As you can see the house has been gray, well for 20 years.... I wanted to change the color when we put siding on but my husband liked the gray... I was just so happy to get the siding that I just agreed with the gray. I like the gray just thought a change would have been nice?
Thanks so much for stopping by...... As always it has been my Pleasure...
Keep Smiling...XOXO Julie


  1. It's really coming along and looks beautiful! It must be a fun process for you. Can't wait to see when it's all finished.

  2. Painting the door may seem small, but every little change is going to add up until you have a beautiful, completed transformation. How exciting!

  18. Hello Julie,

    I love your new porch! Before I rented, I always enjoyed working on my home - making it look nice and fit!

    Have a great week!

  19. Julie,

    I love what a fresh coat of paint can do for something! Looking forward to the rest of your porch reveal!

  20. Hi Julie, So nice to meet you. I love the paint and the fresh look. Like a clean crisp canvas to start anew. What a great porch.
    Have a nice day!

  21. It looks great so far!! We added a large deck a few years ago, it's so much fun being able to sit outside in a comfortable area. Now if only we could figure out how to get rid of the bugs.

  22. What you have done so far looks really nice. Paint does wonders and you have done well. I can't wait to see the finished job.
