I spent the day painting cabinets, again! I am really ready to be done with that project, but I’m nearing the finish line. I should have the cabinets around the fridge put back together tomorrow.
For now, in today’s post, I’m going to circle back to share a project we completed when my parents were still here. Remember the front porch?
My dad and I worked together to paint the door in a custom-mixed green that I felt complimented the pinkish-beige siding. (Yes, I would love to eventually paint or replace the siding, but that’s way, way down the priority list, so I need to make it work for now.)
And I decided to paint the bench to match. It looked nice as it was, but it blended into the siding a bit and I liked the idea of it relating to the front door. My dad worked on painting the bench while my mom and I worked on other projects and I came in here and there to paint areas that involved sitting on the floor, so he didn’t have to do that.
Even though it’s not my preferred palette of blue & white, I think the beige, black, and green play together well.
I can’t wait to work on the front garden in the spring to tie it all together even more.
Until then, I’m sprucing the porch up for fall and will share that soon!
PS – I have totally dropped a few blog series in recent weeks and months, just because of Lucketts and the move, but I will be picking them up again soon – The Stuff Series, Dear Reader, & Decorating Dilemmas.
