Saturday for Pink Saturday I posted the porch at 1515 with the primer my husband put on that was Pink. You all wanted to see the finished product, so lets join Metamorphosis Monday!
When I bought 1515 two years ago, I concentrated on updating the inside. The porch banister really needed to be painted.....what do you think? And the floor too was showing wear.
The banister is large all the way around the porch and has always been fun to sit on
There I am with my brother and cousins in about 1965 leaning on the same banister.
My grandparents had everything painted gray but the new owners in 1978 put a stone front on the house and painted everything brown. I told my husband I felt like we were at a state park...it was that color brown.
Pre...gray porch and aluminum windows
My poor husband sanding, what a mess!
Here is the pink primer
Painted the aluminum the brown color, looks so much better.
The 1515 sign is painted and back up. As I left the house for the last time in 1978, I reached up and grabbed it as I left...so glad I did.
You can just barely make out the sign in this 1950 picture of my Grandmothers brothers.
Here it is all done, color Tile Red. The porch swing we even sanded and put new chains up for it.
It made a huge difference to the old place. Next time I am home I will have to get the metal chairs back on it, they will look great with the new color.
