Ta-da! It's back porch living...sort of

I have pretty well completed my back porch painting project. I am currently remodeling my grandparents' house and will be moving into it at the end of summer. Grandma passed away last spring and Grandpa passed this spring. While I am updating and remodeling in the house, I decided to start at the back porch--an enclosed room at the back door where the laundry hookups are.

Grandma and Grandpa's house is out in the country, on a farm, and the back door was always the main door. The front door might as well not have existed. I expect it will be much the same when I move into the house. I started at the back porch with intentions to work my way into the house and I am so pleased with the results! I know Grandma would love it too and that makes me happy. Allow me to give you a look-see...

Picture one is of the inner back door, leading into the kitchen, and to the left is a small storage closet and the steps leading down into the basement. As you can see, I tried out a little of the paint BEFORE taking my BEFORE pic...oh well. You get the picture. This pic was taken while standing at the back storm door steps.

Picture two is of the outer back door. This pic was taken standing at the kitchen door and storage closet area (as seen in picture one).

Now, I realize these before pics aren't the greatest, but if you want to see what it looks like AFTER the painting has been completed, just watch the following video...

 So whaddaya think? I'm quite pleased and maybe, just maybe, when I get moved in I'll actually look forward to doing laundry. Hmmm, we'll see about that...


  1. It really looks nice and very "welcoming!" Looking forward to seeing more of your video progress.

  2. Love it! The butterflies are my favorite. I have some like them in my kitchen. I also love the shades of blue. Good job!

  3. I love the blue colors. It all looks like a nice place to relax in the evening.
