I know, it's been a while!! I've been busy and didn't get around to posting anything lately!!
This is just a sneak preview - we're finally getting around to repairing,,,um,,,replacing our front porch railing. The original thought was that we would disassemble it, scrape all the old paint off, and reassemble...no cost except the paint and sweat.
The porch is original to the house - so 16 yrs old. It's got many coats of paint - it just doesn't stick well to treated wood. Oh, and some of the boards are cracked and brittle.
So, we decided to bite the bullet - go to Lowes and get all new replacement wood. More later - it's not finished yet!!
