Our front porch faces a heavily traveled state route. We've been staining the porch with a dark wood stain--much like it was when we inherited it 6 summers ago. But a few weeks ago, my husband stained the rails and posts white. What a change!
Today he began painting the floor. We selected a color to match the siding on the house. I'm very excited to see the finished product. Saturday morning neighbors and members of our church family will join us for "Open Porch" as we watch the Harlan Day parade. It's an annual event and "our crowd" grows a little each year. It will be such fun to host the festivities from our newly decorated porch.
