Front Porch Finished Product

To finish off the front porch update I figured it was time for a little staining. 

 After awhile that nice new pressure treated wood started to look dull and dingy.  My husband has said many times he doesn't like it when people stain pressure treated wood but it looks horrible.

This was probably the most sad what fountain I have seen in awhile.  It hasn't actually seen water for at least 3 years and that is for two reasons, first the kids would play in it and empty out the water. The second reason is that that pump just stopped working, probably something to do with the kids emptying the water, lol. So I decided to bring it back to life and re-purpose it, so I made it into a planter.

Before ~ Not so pretty

After ~ Ah so much better

Finally the finished product

There is finally some life in the front porch

Good job! Especially with the weather in Calgary! Come see my son's room. It has a lot of Alberta. I grew up in Calgary!
