The Porch Swing

The Porch Swing with its first coat of terracotta colored paint! It doesn't look quite this garish in person.

Porch Swing with Primer Coat (kilz oil based primer). It is on the ground in preparation for the hurricane.

Porch Swing 2 months ago after I picked out pillow fabric.


I managed to finally paint the porch swing yesterday. I have one more coat to do today then it is officially done! It is one of those projects that has been “in progress” for way to long. I still need to give the porch floor a good clean up and also paint the plant stand, but at least now I can smile when I see the brightly colored swing when I walk onto the front porch.

I am going to take a couple days off from the blog. I will be back next week with some new stuff to show but in the meantime I need to get ready for a neighborhood BBQ, take care of my sick kitty cat and spend the weekend with the family. I hope everyone is back up and running after the storm (my parents are still unfortunately without power). Enjoy the long weekend!
