It now looks like this!!!!!!!! TA DA!!!!!!!!!
The porch rail was built by Steven out of leftovers from the front porch boards that we cut down last year. We have a pile of them! I really like the pattern. The 4×4 posts were leftover from our fence project from almost 2 years ago. We only bought the post anchors, the solar caps (which are really neat by the way) and the pocket hole jig to mount it. Our back rail cost a grand total of….drumroll….$40! Woot woot! The rail we took down was not the original rail and it was rotted in many places. Instead of trying to match the back porch to the front porch, we decided to update it and give it a more modern deck look. I love it!
