Our New Porch Color

Okay, this may not be the most enlightening blog post you’ve ever seen, but I’m sharing anyways!

You may remember our first big home-improvement project we finished earlier this year. We replaced a large portion of our home’s foundation and built a new front porch. You can view the pictures here.

I allowed the new porch’s boards and cedar posts to naturally dry out over the summer before staining it. This week, the weather in Kansas was perfect for me to finally stain the wood.



I am totally in love with the new porch color! What do you think? The stain is from Sherwin-Williams, called Heart Redwood. The red tint was exactly what I was shooting for.

In the Springtime, we plan to work on the siding of the house. It will get a new color. We are thinking about leaving the porch this color as we continue updating.

We’ve made some really neat plans for the outside of the home that I cannot wait for you all to see next year.

Are any of you homeowners currently working on a project? I’d love to hear about it! Leave a comment below.
