Screened Porch Progress: Screens & Doors

My dad was here all week working on the porch! I'm sooooooooooo excited about how far it came in just a few days! 

We still have to finish painting the ceiling. We decided we are going to leave it open truss and paint everything gray. It's looking really cool. 

The trim, etc. is painted and the screens are now in place! 

We are doing 7" smooth hardie board for siding and it will have to be painted. I am leaning towards the same gray as our shutters. 

What do you think, gray or white? I like the gray as it reminds me of our old house that I dearly loved. 


My dad also installed the beadboard and the baseboards. Oh oh oh I'm so in love!!

He also hung our doors. The weather stripping/thresholds will be installed once the wood has done some of its initial shrinking. 

During the kiddos nap times I got a first coat of white on the beadboard. PUMPED!!!!

Once the siding is done, the guys will install the ceiling fan and new wall sconce. I'm leaning towards this barn light in black. 

And one of these ceiling fans. 

And of course, string lights on the trusses. 

Still to do:
finish painting beadboard/door trim
finish painting trusses
install siding and paint siding
order rug
accessorize/soft goods/furniture placement

I like white but honestly, either would be good. Looks great and am enjoying following along.
