before and after porch stencil painting
Are you getting in the mood for spring?  I certainly am — the itch is really needing to be scratched so I am not only starting to get my seed and plant orders finalized but also I am making some DIY plans.   This porch makeover  is just the sort of thing that I can’t wait to get messy with — once the snow is gone.  It is kind of extraordinary….
