Guess What I Have Been Doing This Summer?

It is hard to believe that school starts back tomorrow.  I haven't had a lot of time to blog this summer because I have been so busy doing other stuff.  I did manage to squeeze in a lot of porch sitting along with all of my projects.   Now I will share with you a little at a time with what I have been doing. 

My first project was the staining of my front door.  Even though it's covered, it still weathers a lot.  It also faces the west and gets the hot sun in the afternoon which over time causes it to fade.  I went a little darker this summer and it gave it more of an aged appearance. I used Behr: Misson Oak in a satin finish with polyurethane. 
Do you see that gorgeous hanging basket? It has grown so much and I have to keep pruning it.   I'll tell you about that on another post. 

 Check back later and I'll share some of my other summer projects.

  1. I love your front door. I also love the dark stain. To me, the darker it is, the older it looks, which is the look I love!
