Our New Porch Railing

In January I posted about how excited I was that we were getting an estimate on some much needed porch railing for our new home. Well, lets just say that the estimate they gave us was beyond ridiculous (over $1000) and made hubby seriously consider the whole DIY approach to home remodeling. A couple weeks ago hubby finally did it, he went out and bought the porch railing kit (under $350 from Lowes) and his dad came over and helped him install it.
I really love our new porch railing and the fact that hubby is becoming my very own Bob Vila! Since one home improvement project always leads to another, now I think it's time to repaint the porch, buy a new door and add some decor!

Thank you Caroline, I didn't help much but it looked pretty easy and it was so much cheaper then the quote we were given!

Isela, thanks chica! Yes the windows are tinted (that's how we roll, LOL j/k) The house actually had tinted windows when we bought it!

That new porch does look nice. Your hubby and his dad did a great job. Who knows? Maybe the two of them can soon make a few more fun DIY projects for you guys to enjoy.
