I'm thinking another post about our house painting project may be kind of overkill, but I'm putting up the porch pictures just the same because it is the best part. If you've painted a whole house yourself then you know what I mean, it's the little details that finally make it look good.
If you want to follow the process, here are links to the other posts.
I also like the bench painted black. I started out painting it with the orange/red we used on the shutters.
