Covered Patio

We've continued to make progress on our covered patio.  This is what we started with...

The bead board soffit is now complete and it makes a huge difference in the space.  It is brighter and it makes the porch feel like more of an outdoor room.

I am now on the hunt for a new lantern to hang in place of the ceiling fan.  In the meantime, we hung the fan back up so there is no rush.  Next up, we are still considering painting the concrete floor.  

In the meantime, I think we are going to try to relax and enjoy a bit of summer before it passes us by.


  1. Everything looks great. I agree, enjoy that space! stained her concrete patio at her old house and explained how and what type of products they used. The end result really finished the space off.

  2. Such a lovely outdoor space, I love the wood on the ceiling... would love to do that on our deck one day. It really does take the space to the next level.
