Porch boards


Now that the front walls are permanently in place, I was able to cut the front porch boards using skinny craft sticks. I had to add a cross board made of strip wood to split a portion of the porch since the craft sticks come cut to six inches in length and the porch is deeper than that. Behind that line, I continued with skinny sticks cut to size. I applied a paint wash of Slate Grey by Americana and black. I then followed that up with a wash of pure black. I might do some more to the porch later, but for now I just needed to get rid of the shiny new wood. I also cut and painted the trim that lines the porch above the brick foundation. Now it's starting to look like the real thing to me.
