We're Swinging!

The porch swing has been up for a week & we're LOVING it!  Grady & I have read &/or played out there probably every night since we got it up.
I can't wait to finish everything else.  Tonight mom & I will work on priming the floor, window boxes, & the frame for the swing, then hopefully tomorrow after work we can get the floor painted aqua!

Here's a quick run-down of what's left to do - we're almost there!!!

  • Build built-in bar.
  • Prime & paint swing framework.
  • Prime & paint porch floor.
  • Prime & paint new steps up to porch.
  • Prime & paint window boxes.
  • Mulch garden around porch.

Porch Progress & a Very Special Birthday

The last month has been a total blur.  Most of it was spent focused on my surgery & rehabbing my knee = not fun.  We did manage to squeeze in both some work & play though!  There are still a few things on the porch list: filling some holes, painting the floor, painting the window boxes, building the "bar", & hanging up the porch swing to name a few...but it's getting close!

We celebrated Grady's birthday out there & it was perfect!  Below are a few pictures of what the porch looks like right now as well as some shots of the birthday boy.  The green chairs will be moved over to the bar & the porch swing will take their place.

The barn light was a plain Jane gray that I spray-painted a fun sun yellow.  I LOVE it.
New window boxes - soon to be painted.  Color TBD.
Dad getting ready to hang the boxes up.

I can't believe he's three years old already...
