Mailbox Post Makeover

I was in the middle of painting the back porch
and I looked at the mailbox and decided it needed to have a face lift.

It has look basically the same since we have moved in 10 years ago.  
The wood was looking a little faded and weathered. 
I couldn't keep just driving past it pretending I didn't notice.....

Here was my mailbox,
until I got a hold of it ☺


It may seem only slightly different but compared to the other faded mailboxes down the road it looks FANTASTIC!!!!!

I LOVE my new mailbox post!!!

I LOVE that it doesn't look like a brand new post, 
I might would feel the need to replace the mailbox also, 
but it works... has charm ♥

And THIS is the reason I haven't been able to finish THIS yet!!!

If you look in the background you will get a sneak peek of it almost completed ☺

Back Porch Painting

Since we moved into our home 10 years ago, our back porch has always been this red stained unattractive porch. But it was a porch and we loved it!!!!!
 There was even some stain splattered up onto the house, that was painted over about 5 years ago.

A month or so ago I finally found the PERFECT paint at Lowes' in the oops section for $5.00!!!!! It was a steal!!!

I slowly started painting and I have now completed the first coat...
tomorrow I will start on the second and final coat and it will be complete!! 

I am so excited to enjoy my "new" porch...
along with our new pet and family member, Sunday, 
she is a white German Shepherd/yellow lab mix, 
she is a handful ♥

I will post after pictures when it is complete.
Enjoy the weather, it has been quite lovely here, I love the Fall ♥
