A Little Help?

I hope everyone’s weekend has been going well!

I am popping in quick hoping I can ask for a favor, some advice.

What do you think?

So, We have had a project going on here at the FH abode.

If you follow me on Pinterest, you know I have a lot of outdoor and screen porch images Pinned.

This is the reason.

A dream in the making.

When we worked out the house last year, this was the part we held off on. A bit of a “Cry of Uncle”, till we could re-group.

Now, it is almost finished and I am SO excited and grateful.

From the beginning I have always said I wanted WHITE, WHITE and more WHITE.

The exterior changed a little because of material availability (there will be white capping the window screens).

The exterior wood will be stained an opaque beige that matches our garage structure.

Where I need your help is the inside.

Sorry the pictures are a little blurry, they were taken with my phone quickly.

There are barn beams, as you can see. My plan has always been to stain all of the wood, except the beams, with an opaque white.

But now I am wondering if I should use a wood colored stain in some areas instead.

If I was high tech and had more time, I would install an easy peasy survey on this post, but the fact is, I have a chance to go on a date with my hubby in an hour.

So, if you would be willing to help me out and just put your opinion in the comments, I would really appreciate it.

So, here are the options:

A – All of the inside wood stained opaque white, with the exception of the beams.

B- All of the inside stained a wood color

C – Do the walls white and the ceiling a wood tone that blends with the beams.

Thanks in advance so much for your help!!!

I have several projects in the works for this porch and I am very excited to share them with you as we work on them.

Thanks and have a great night!
