In the last few of weeks we have been trying to finish some outdoor projects now that the weather is not so hot.
If you live in Texas, you know exactly what I mean.
We really want to have these projects done before the winter months arrive.
Lately, our neighborhood has been under construction. Lots of new homes are getting built.
I don't know if it is the fact that we got used to have just empty lots around us, but as soon as those home started
to go up, we felt the need to add a little "privacy" to our back porch.
One day while browsing on Pinterest I came across this beautiful porch with wooden screens.
And since I don't like to put on my blog pictures that don't belong to me, you can view that pin here.
We both loved this look, so my husband got to work and recreated the same kind of screens.
But before we made the screens, we finished off the railing on the porch to match the rest of the deck.
This is what it looked like before.
My husband worked hard building the screens.
It was not as easy as it looks and more than once I thought he was going to throw them out the window LOL
but, little by little they came together.
When it was all said and done, we painted them the same color as the siding of our home, Natural Beige by SW.
It took us close to six hours to install them.
They are very heavy and it was just the two of us doing the job. Trying to center them was the hardest thing
and being on top of the ladder for me was NO fun.
I don't like ladders.
But we just love the way they look! It gave the porch such a cozy feeling.
I even love how they look when the sun goes down.
And I got so excited about my new screens, I decided to redecorate the whole porch and make new outdoor curtains.
I gave the porch a new Fall look. Here is a little sneak peek.
And that is it. What do you think?
I will be back soon to share the rest of the porch decorated for Fall. Meanwhile, I hope you have a wonderful day
and thank you so much for your visit.
