I have teamed up with three other bloggers to bring you the Summer Spruce-Up Series. The series is all about sprucing-up our outdoor areas to get them ready for summer! What all of that means is that I had to get off my butt and get to work. Enter my screened-in porch makeover.
My screened-in porch had been so neglected until I was forced to tackle it (a good and needed forced, thanks gals). When we moved in two years ago, the last thing on our minds was the back porch. We were too busy with a kitchen, bathroom, and basically an overhaul of our entire house. I didn’t take a photo of the inside of the porch, but this was the outside, so you can get a pretty good idea of what it was like.
Rough, to say the least.
We finally got around to working on it about six months after we moved in.
But, then I got pregnant.
So, for the last year and a half, our screened-in porch has set like this. Partially finished.
Grunt Labor had fixed the screening and added lattice to keep the dogs from getting in. We had also partially painted the woodwork, but that was it.
And now, within the last three weeks, it has finally gotten its long overdue makeover.
With the exception of the chaise lounge and rocking chair, we already had the patio furniture. I picked up the lounge at an antique store for $100. All of the furniture got a fresh coat of gloss black spray paint, which it was in desperate need of.
