After two days of all-out work, I’ve got the porch very close to completion. The baseboards, toe molding, and finish molding are all in and painted. Network drops are wired and ready. Jen picked out a beautiful Pratt-Lambert light gray for the walls, which keeps the room light, neutral, and accents the bright white woodwork. The only things that remain are the drywall above the door to the bathroom, which needs to be primed and painted, and areas around the switchplates which need to be sanded, primed and painted.

There is a little touch-up to be done with the color here and there, but I’ll wait until the other stuff is ready to go.

    Thanks! We spent a lot of time trying to find the right color. Thank goodness Ace hardware now sells Pratt & Lambert paint (although it’s ridiculously expensive). Used to be we had to drive to Alexandria to get any.

    “We” always spend a lot of time trying to find the right color. But that’s because “we” are color obsessed.
