Porch love

Although our porch is in desperate need of a facelift, including new support beams, I decided to liven it up a little.  Thought this might take away from the ugliness that is the rotting wood trim that needs to be completely replaced.
I love our porch.  It is were I sit to get away from all the noise my family makes.  I sit out here during thunderstorms and to read books.

 I received the Hoosier cabinet from one of the dealers at the antique store in return for cleaning up his booth. The upper part of the cabinet is in great condition, needs to be refinished but it has great glass doors.  The bottom not so much. The back legs are not attached very well and it has sat outside in the elements ruining the wood veneer.

 I started repainting the trim on the house, lower level only so far.  I decided that it needs to have the traditional Victorian feel with more that one trim color.  I think the green and raspberry colors compliment each other nicely.

Added some for hostas to this little section of shade garden.
