Work on the screened porch came to a halt last week. Seasonal allergies combined with some very windy days prevented us from completing the work. As you can see, our supervisor Miss Mary was not very happy. After all, she has watched the progress of this porch, and has hopes that she will be able to enjoy the use of this porch once it is completed.
The light fixture is in place. We are thinking about adding a ceiling fan also.
Because we live in an area that experiences so much heat, we will use battery operated candles for this fixture.
It seems that one thing I overlooked, was that screened porches get dirty. Yesterday this new porch received a scrubbing. Last week's wind left a thick coat of pollen and dust on the porch.
Cushions are needed for the chairs, but after the wind we had last week, I am glad that I waited!
These hand painted pictures were purchased about 3 years ago at a yard sale, in the hopes of putting the pictures on the porch.
This tray is another yard sale find. I fell in love with the colors, and like the picture, hoped to use it on the screened porch.
