Before & After: Kate's Peeling Porch

My Great Outdoors

Name: Kate
Location: Ann Arbor, Michigan

We live in a historic district with porches being a mainstay. Our railings were rotten, and the clapboard siding and ceiling had peeling lead paint.

We carefully scraped and properly disposed of all the lead paint and finally built new railings to match the original historic design. We put in a few beaded fir ceiling and lights. Viola!

We love to eat dinner out here all summer long.

Thanks Kate!
