Porch Addition Part 2

Here is installment number 2 of the addition ... All of the windows are in and the outside has been sided and painted.

Notice anything different? Years ago I took a photo of a porch in Newport that I loved. They had these extra decorative pieces put on and I thought it was the perfect touch. However, my husband, who has let me have full control over this project was not so sure about this part. Eventually, we painted them the same color as the house so they did not stand out so much and I actually like it better too.

So ... here is the inside. My original plan was to wainscoat the ceiling and sheet rock the inside. My builder suggested we do the opposite because of all of the funny angles in the ceiling. I am thrilled with the results!! I love beadboard and I think it looks perfect on the walls in this space! I know you can't see it in the photo but the finished photos to come really show it off.

I have a whole lot of painting to do!!!

These are two pics of the kitchen in the "before" stage. The porch addition is part of the kitchen so it was perfect timing for a new paint job. (Excuse the mess ... we were in remodel mode!)

Thanks for visiting ... more to come
