I got on with painting the porch yesterday afternoon, I've not painted the doors yet, but the worst of it is done. As I said it's pretty dark in there so white was replaced with white. Foolishly I forgot to take a before picture.
The darkest area housed the flying ducks
Pretty uninspiring and not a particularly good colour for such a gloomy area. So I used the old embroidery hoop trick to brighten the place up as I had three left.
The shelf is the top of the outside bin shed, so it's really deep and can become a potential clutter spot. In fact, the things on top of it now are things that should have gone into the garage at the end of winter, instead they got as far as the porch then hid behind my big old sewing machine. The machine has moved into the spare room with the rest of my craft stuff, and the other things are now a fixture in the porch.
Better at reflecting what little light there is, and add a bit more texture at the same time. My mum gave me the green vase, and I wasn't sure about it but it's so bright I like it here.
