Front Porch Railing Reveal…

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy for more details.

We finally saved enough to pay cash for our front porch railings!  We accomplished this goal in August and Trent was able to finally shop around quite a few different stores on the internet until he found the best deal!  By shopping around and comparing prices, he ended up saving us $500!

Now, from this vantage point one might wonder why we are replacing everything.
Well, let’s look a bit closer.
As you can see, not only do these puppies need some paint, but there is some rot going on and a few missing spindles.

My least favorite part about the posts is this decoration. (If you have these on your house, I’m sorry, they’re just not my style).

Below is our brand new front porch!  We decided to go with vinyl so that it will be less upkeep for us and we won’t have to paint!  I couldn’t be happier at how it turned out!

If you’re saving up to pay cash for a large project, keep at it.  I can tell you that it’s a wonderful feeling knowing that we won’t be making payments on our new front porch!
