We have had a leaking porch roof for quite a long time - but we didn't know until last May....
but part of the ceiling needs replacing so we are using the opportunity to revamp the porch and use it as an entrance rather than the kitchen.
The porch as you look down the stairs is to the right.
The door leading in from the hall has been prepared, ready for a paint job.
On entering the porch you are faced with a cupboard. I have never been able to reach the top shelf and so we've decided to have some shelves fixed inside, removing the rail.
It's an ideal storage space for hoover, cleaner and floor washer.
To the right as you come in from the hall are the current coat racks.......above where a radiator once hung.
We are re-locating the hooks (and adding a couple more) to the wall to the right on entering from the porch door (main entrance.)
All of the pine woodwork is to be white gloss.
This is the main door entrance adjacent to the kitchen door.
The door blind needs replacing and I may hang curtains - still debating.
The porch has a 5 foot window overlooking the garden.
Again I am thinking about putting curtains up to add warmth.
This window is to the right when entering from the main door - as shown in this plan.
The porch is currently Pale Hound colour but we are changing the scheme to link to the colours from the hall - a grey. I am excited about changing the colour and wonder how brave I will be - will I go as dark grey as I dare?
I find experimenting with colours quite exciting.....watch this space!
A new round of ABC Wednesday - I am using this round to share the home improvements we have planned for 2016. I find before and after photos a great record of what we are doing, what we need to do and what need to plan to do.
