Porch in Transition...
The railings and posts on our front porch are not original to the structure (build 1920). Long term plans are to replace the 4x4's with more substantive posts that are cedar faced and stained. We are also going to add a paver tiling to the cement floor. While I absolutely believe that 'we' are going to get started on this someday, after four years, I was sick of looking at those ugly, ugly porch railings and finally convinced my husband to let me take them out. When we painted the house two years ago, I did not paint railings and posts (someday we are going...), but now I am going to give those posts a coat of paint. I have leftover paint, so they could be cream, orange, tan or green. I am leaning towards the green. What do you think of the temporary makeover, and what color would you paint the posts? Also, the driveway view is yucky. Any suggestions for defining this space and hiding the driveway?
