  1. I would say no to painting the door! Since you did this makeover the green really pops and looks great! This all came out really nice! The before was nice too but this really looks so much nicer!

    1. Thank you Shirley! I really eventually want a new door because this one is banged up and has holes.

  2. Looks great! We purchased the same fairy light and just love it. Great for the 4 th of july , looks exactly like a giant sparkler. With no worry of starting a fire.

    1. Yes it is a great light. I’ve used it in my other macrame chandelier as well.

  3. Julia, it looks fantastic!

  4. Looks so good. Great job!

    Oh my gosh. I love the ambience of your front porch.

    1. Thank you Dorenda. I love that I only had to buy paint which shows again how big of a difference only paint can make.

    As always, Julia, you’ve made something look fabulous. I’m surprised all your neighbors aren’t hiring you to paint their porches. I can see why your family loves spending time out there. You’re so very creative and talented. Hope you’re enjoying your summer.

    1. Oh thank you June! I would be afraid to paint their porches 😉 I always feel comfortable doing my own projects but afraid of messing up others.

  7. Another outstanding makeover.

    1. Thanks Cassie! I hope it will hold up as great as the stripes.

  8. You did a beautiful job on the porch, and if you also designed/installed the landscaping you did a beautiful job of that, too! It’s all so inviting, and I agree that the new floor color looks great with the fabric.
    I love your mini fire pit. Did you make it, or is it available elsewhere?

    1. Thanks Jane, yes we did the landscaping too. We love working in the yard. The fire pit is from Target a couple of years ago. They don’t have the same one anymore but I think they sell similar ones.

    I love the new front porch:) You have a lot of patience painting that pattern. Love, love the rattan couch and planter:)

    1. Thanks Debbie. I do have patience when it comes to projects 😉 The rattan couch is one of my favorite finds for only $50 and we bring it in the garage in the winter so it doesn’t get ruined.

    Beautiful work, Julia! Your porch and front yard look enchanting!

    1. Thanks Karen! My parents are about to visit and I’m looking forward to sitting out there with them.

    A brilliant job of uplifting the space. You’ve created such a warm vibe out there! The colors are easy on the eye and Willy clearly approves. Well done!
