Day 871's before and after: front porch
Over the weekend, we completed a project that's been on our minds (and our agenda) since we bought our house (more than a year-and-a-half ago). We replaced the dated, swirly iron "columns" with square wood posts.
Before: This is what the house looked like soon after we bought it in the Spring of 2008.
In the Spring of 2009, we took off the iron storm door, painted the wooden door, and changed the porch lighting (read about it here), and replaced the over-grown bushes (read about that here).
Adding the wood posts has really made a difference. I thought they might look a little too new, but I really think they look like they've been there all along.
I know at least a couple of you have some lovely iron "columns" of your own, so stay tuned for a full post on the process.
