911, it was down there, this is a picture from a few years ago when snow covered the south.
Susan, it is pretty, but it has water damage & rot, not very pretty with holes gaping in it. Thanks, I love my house!
Steve, thanks for the advice I will look,
Wood,you are right on target. I was thinking to wrap it with the same hardiplank that is is visible above the porch. It would make it look different, but the idea is to replace with something more durable, so I don't run into this problem again. The vinyl is a great idea. I just don't want it to look cheep.
We have cherry cabinets and dark countertops, what color would look best for the backsplash? We will be using tile of some sort, but after going this far with this kitchen redo, I don't want ordinary tile.

Use the floor as a frame of reference, and also, other decor in the area. For example, you
have a pop of blue on the shelf, you could incorporate something that has splashes of blue... Or something that picks up the pattern on the floor. Excited to see your choice! It looks great.
