Now that the porch is almost done, I am constantly thinking of what else I can do! What is THAT about!! I can never just finish and sometimes things look overworked! So tonight I am sitting on the porch listening to the rain, and deciding to finish tomorrow. I will do as much as I can in the next day and "Say When"!! I don't think that it looks all that old. I was going for the Old Farmhouse Porch look that I remember from childhood. They always seemed to be sort of plain with lots of wicker and plants. I was thinking that I should have stained the wood then just dry brushed it with the tinted primer. Primer is so thick and dry that it is a great medium to use as a dry brush technique. I think that would give the look of old peeling dry paint without sanding and roughing up the surface!
Oh well, next time!
Hopefully when I get the old furniture back out it will look better. My favorite porch was in the North GA mountains I loved daydreaming as I sat on the old swing. ~ Ahhhh that was so much fun! ~
Well the sun has set and the frogs are croaking so I guess that means it is time to hit the hay!
I hope y'all have a great day tomorrow and don't forget to take a little time for some Sweet Tea and a little daydreaming on the porch!
