Porch project - floor

As the final leg of our porch project (you can read more about that here, here and here) the Mr. painted our porch floor. What was supposed to be a really simple project turned into about 5 trips to Home Depot (seriously, can anyone do a home project with just ONE trip there!??!). The main problem was the colour of the first paint we got, it was way too light...we would have been blinded every time we walked up to our house. So, we took the paint back and they actually just fully exchanged it for a new can (amazing), and then we had to go to another Home Depot to get more "sand" to put in the paint (anti-slip medium).  Long story short, the floor is painted and now we're on the hunt for some more comfy chairs for the porch. If anyone knows anywhere doing patio furniture clearance let us know :)

Not the sexiest of projects, but one you just gotta do :)

Maybe not the sexiest of projects, but al fresco dining with candlelight on your new porch will be! Looks great!

Looks great! Reminds me a lot of my porch project. I'm thinking of adding a fun color to the ceiling but it will likely have to wait until next year!
