Our screened porch: Before & After

Over time, we have gradually made a few improvements to our screened porch. Here's what we did on a small budget:
- Repainted wicker furniture (yes, the owner agreed to leave her porch furniture. My husband swore we could make them look like new. I honestly doubted it, but in the end, he was right! (sigh)
- Installed and painted new french doors
- Installed and painted new screen doors
- New cushions and pillows
- Repainted the floor

Wow. What a difference a few updates made. And the best part of it all (and the biggest money saver) was that we did it all ourselves, including painting and hanging the doors! It was a lot of work, but totally worth it in the end.
We love entertaining on our porch. Here are some pics from a baby shower I hosted last fall...

and finally, my most recent project was repainting and hanging these antique shutters. I think they turned out well and add some architectural detail to the space...

I love Before & After pics, so I hope you enjoyed these today. Although our porch will may never look like the "dream" pictures I posted yesterday, we love it and I think we've made some definite improvements! Now on to the next project :)


  1. Love it! You do know how jealous I am that you even HAVE a screened porch, right?? Beautiful!

  2. AWESOME ! Gets better all the time. And way to go, Bruner !

  3. What a huge transformation on the porch! It’s been two years since you updated it. Do you have any plans of remodeling it again? I suggest you change the colors of the trims, walls, floors and, if you want, you add new furniture and fixtures. You can also add decors that suit your taste. What do you think?
