YAY for some progress! The ceiling is painted, hallelujah! That dang hurricane tried to derail our progress (and it did) but at least we've got something going this week. Hurray.

Still have to paint the siding and touch up some spots, but that open truss ceiling was a pain (a pain in my hubby's neck, not really in mine! HA. Note: We are still married...)

Next up : electrical. I wanted to do a fun light fixture, but Hubs is too traditional for that. So we landed on a simple outdoor fan.

Rug decisions.... Why do I second guess my own house right and left?! I am Miss Indecisive when it comes to my own home. Oy. Make a freakin' decision, Ashley. Do you have a favorite?

I ordered these fun side tables from Ballard Designs 

And we finally got on the schedule for the stamped concrete patio. I'm kind of afraid it won't be done in time for this challenge, but happy to see an end in sight nonetheless! 

Still to do: 

Finish painting interior of porch and truss ceiling
Electrical: fan, string lights (selected)
Finish painting Hardie plank siding 
stamped concrete patio- on the contractor's schedule!
choose dining furniture
choose grilling/bar tables

Wow, that list still feels super long.

So exciting! I think I like the first and last rugs the best. Can't wait to see this come together!
