Over the weekend, I got to work on the new front stoop railings. My dad helped me throw a coat of primer on them, and then I filled holes, sanded, and painted. I'm in love! What a difference.
I painted the railings the same as the house, which is Sherwin Williams Alabaster (SW7008). The hand rails are the same as our shutters, Behr Elephant Skin (PPU18-16). I figured the hand rails would get dingy from people touching them, etc. and I like the contrast of the two colors.
This is after just one coat of paint, so I've still got some painting ahead of me. That is a constant theme around here...
The mailbox got a facelift, too. I painted the post and we got a new white box. I need EASY landscaping ideas... as in something I cannot kill and grows easily. I'm not a plant-new-flower-beds every year kind of girl. At all.
And a before and after. Can't believe we bought the house almost a year ago. We've been working hard ever since. I think Hubs is ready for the projects to quit :) I have to admit, I'll probably be sad when the work is done. I always love a good fixer upper project. I have major issues.
Thank you to my Hubs and my Daddy for building these new railings. I love them so much!
