Painting the Porch

Well I am painting my front porch and screened porch before it gets too hot down in the Low Country!  Basically I am just changing the color of the front door, floor and shutters.  I am using oil paint on shutters and door so it is taking longer to dry than regular latex paint.

Want to share a couple of photos of what I have done so far.  Will be back with updated photos once completed.  It is such a nice feeling when everything is freshly painted!!

Here is the original shutter color, I call it Olive Green

More to come.  Stay tuned...

Have a great weekend!

  3. I love your door and shutters! I want to paint our front door yellow but Mr. Bird Nest Cottage doesn't like my choice. I plan to do it one day while he's at work. Haha!
