In July of 2012 I began the process with an Etsy artist to have a watercolor painted of my front porch. This is something I have wanted to do for years. I’m not sure what made me finally take the time to do it but I’m so glad I did. Here is the finished painting.
The artist is Carol Bray and you can find her on Etsy. Here is the link to her shop:

Our entry didn’t always look like this. For years we lived with old carpet and dark wallpaper. In the spring of 2012 I decided enough was enough. It took a few months and some elbow grease but I think the reno turned out great. You can read about my Reinvented Stairway right here.
