Several months ago, we installed three sets of French doors; my husband installed two sets of doors himself except for the one going out to the sleeping porch, because it was in concrete.
A week or two ago, we payed someone to put our giant armoire back together again and then we painted it with Annie Sloan French Linen.
Now the armoire looks pretty on the porch. Although I loved the wood finish, it looks better gray in this space.
chandeliers which will remain hanging for their own safety.
We also painted this little armoire gray. You can't tell from this photo, but it yellowed due to keeping it in the heat.
Now it is Annie Sloan French Linen. I sanded it to show the white underneath.
My husband is going to finish painting the doors and then he is going to wash the floor with TSP, paint it with SW Fawn Brindle concrete paint, and epoxy the floor. The floors will look like the first photo.
We have come a long way.
We began with a rotted wall, a door, and four windows in various stages of disrepair.
In this photo he had already pulled off the rotted planks.
It stayed like this for months.
My husband worked on this for quite a few weekends.
He insulated and planked it and finished the outside as well.
We hope to bring it to a state that we can live with and use in the cooler months.
It should be a great space for parties and other activities.
