The front porch was starting to need a new paint job last year, but we were so busy with the Vacation house, I guess that I just didn't do it. But, We are having a party and people are coming over, so I knocked it out!
IT didn't Look this BAD! First, I cleaned it with some soap and water. Then, I used a scraper to knock the loose paint off. But, when I took the water hose to it with some pressure the paint started coming off every where.
|See, it only flaked in a couple of areas.|
Fresh! But now I couldn't put these tables back on my porch, looking like this! I know....they look pretty bad. Amazing that they look so weathered, being under a porch.
I decided to only paint the top. I didn't have any red paint....can't believe that, but I did have some White Exterior. First, sand the tops and get dirt and loose paint off.
|This one was fun, Not really.|
|I like them!|
|Sanded around the edges a bit, to let the red show thru.|
In this picture, you can see the rope tying the tree to a post on the porch. I talked about this in my post, To Much Rain". That tree and another one had started leaning really bad, so I tied both of them off. I hope that they are going to be ok!
I think the front porch is ready for the Party! Now, I have to finish cleaning up the Garage.... - Game Room. It has a Ping-Pong table in it. I will be posting pictures!
