Welcome to week 4 of the One Room Challenge! In just 2 short weeks I’ll be sharing the final reveal of our two-story back porch makeover!
Last week I shared the design plan for each of the two porches, and I’m ashamed to say that not much has happened since. It’s ok though…I work better under pressure. :)
Anyway, here’s a look at the freshly painted porches (and some good ol’ NC pollen).
Here’s what’s on this week’s to do list:
- Scrub the porches to get rid of the nasty pollen residue
- Paint the doors red
- Hang curtains
I’ve been putting off painting the doors because I’m just not sure what I want to do. The upstairs doors are easy; they are mostly like the front doors with a solid wood interior door and an outside screen door. But I’m just not sure about the downstairs doors. We have a solid wood door on the inside, but the outer door is a metal storm door. I was considering painting it with a Rustoleum paint, but I’m just not sure how well it will hold up to the elements. Do you have any thoughts that might help?
My next list is the things I have yet to acquire:
- Large seating for upstairs (I’d love a retro metal glider, but it may be a rattan love seat or bamboo sofa)
- Lighting for the downstairs porch
- Hanging baskets for plants
- A rug for the downstairs porch
- Wall decor
I’m feeling pretty indecisive about what I want to hang on the walls. I was in Kirkland’s the other day and saw this mirror that I liked, but I’m worried about the metal rusting. In fact, I’ve seen a lot of metal mirrors that I like but have the same reservation.
I’m hoping to have a lot more checked off that list next week. You can catch up on the other weeks here:
