I’m All Done With The Porch

After staining the concrete floor of my screened-in porch to look like faux tile, I’ve been working hard to put it back together.  Now I’m finally done! 

Take a look at what I’ve done.   006 

I transformed the look of the bakers rack from this… 043_thumb4

to this.  I tiled  the baker’s rack third shelf.  007

An easy fix and what a difference it makes.   008

I added a garden bench to our porch.  It was a gift from our Grandsons.047

I just love the engraved verse.  By putting the bench on our porch we get to see it everyday.  011

I made a water fountain using flower pots.  I can’t tell you how relaxing it is to hear the sound of water flowing.   I will be doing a blog post on how I made the water fountain.  045 

I love how the concrete floor turned out.   059


I also added a stepping stone  that my grandsons’ made for me.   It was given to me before our third grandson was born.  I guess it’s time for another stepping stone with all three of their names on it.  Just a little something else to bring sunshine to my day thinking of those grandsons of mine.   062

I can honestly  say I’m completely happy with the outcome of our screened-in porch and I wouldn’t change a thing.  060

Hope you enjoyed our screened-in porch as much as we enjoy sitting out there. 


Today I’m Linking to:  Get Your Craft On @ Life as Lori and Strut Your Stuff Thursday @ Somewhat Simple.


  1. Oh Gail, the porch turned out wonderful.
    I love the floor.
    I hope it isn't as hot there as it is in AL or you won't be out there for long at a time!!!


  2. I love it too; now I will have to read how you did the flooring.

  3. Very beautiful! So inviting!

  4. Hey Gail. Your porch looks wonderful. The floor really turned out great. And I can't wait to hear how you made your fountain. I've been working on my porch redo for weeks now. All the boring painting and sewing part. I have so much more to do. I hope to show it next week. I really love how relaxing yours looks.

    Hugs...Tracy :)

    P.S. I hope you get a chance to stop by and enter my giveaway before it ends tonight (Tues).

  5. What a wonderful porch! It is so welcoming and tranquil. Awesome job!

  6. That floor is incredible. Love the vignette on the baker's rack. A decorated and closed in porch really adds some living space to a home.

  7. Gail, this is absolutely amazing. It is like jaw-dropping fantastic. I just want to come over and look at everything while I sit in one of those comfy chairs. Beautiful designed!

  8. I love it and can't wait to see how you made the fountain.
