Screened in Porch

So, apparently the people I bought my house from LOVED indoor-outdoor carpeting.  Loved it so much in fact, that they did put it both indoors and outdoors!  The screened in porch had it glued down over every inch (as did my breeze way, but that's another post).  Anyhow, with a little elbow grease and some sanding, staning and painting, this little porch truly shines now!

Here is my one, sad picture of what it looked like before the process:

I wish I had taken more pictures of it, but you kind of get the idea, right?

Here the carpet is gone and I'm prepping to spray the ceiling a nice warm peanut butter color (that I got for $5 from the OOPS section at Home Depot.

And. . . .  . .after

Clear coat of stain on the floor.  The furniture came from Target when it went 75% off!

What a difference, huh?  These were taken a couple of years ago and it looks a little bit different these days.  I bought an much larger outdoor rug at summer's end about 2 years ago, so that's changed the
space quite a bit. 
Quite possibly one of my favorite "rooms" of the house!!
