Front Porch Makeover ~ Part II

{Front Porch Makeover ~ Part II: Cleaning}
Brian spent Day Two of our project with a bucket of soapy water and a whole lot of elbow grease. We'll wait a couple days for the structure to dry and then start Part III!

Front Porch Makeover ~ Part I

{Front Porch Makeover ~ Part I: Demolition}
After driving up to this for the past year, it's about time we start work on our much needed curb appeal.

After noticing most of our railing was either rotted or infested with carpenter bees, we decided to take all existing railing down and start over. We even had a bit of a surprise when we found the original stairs still in tact under the added porch.

Day one ended with the majority of demo done!

{Coastal Maine}
We flew up to Maine for Chrisanna and Andrew's Wedding and were able to spend some quality time with Jane and Garry! We cruised along the coast ~ hitting some antique stores and one amazing flea market! The Smiths played a round of golf and it wouldn't be a trip to Maine without Lobster Rolls!
