Yesterday our front porch posts were installed.
I’m pretty excited about this wee bit o’ progress.
While these look like wood, they’re actually fiberglass.
Soon they will be painted white to match the house.

SO. This means one thing.
It’s time for me to finalize my railing choice.
First up, there’s your X motif — I’m a fan.
Let’s have a look-see,
starting with this charming cottage here in town.
I’ve always loved it!
Man, do I love that screen porch, or what.
They replaced the original X rail on the front porch + stairs.
Kudos to the homeowner who cared enough to continue the X motif.
Looks good! — except they’re kind of too stretched out, in my opinion.
I prefer it when the X is more square, like this:
My favorite of all the X railings would be when it’s “smooshed”, like this:
So, the X it is!

Or IS it?
I just don’t think X railings are right for a Dutch colonial porch.
In all my surfing, I’ve not seen photos** of said-same,
so I’m pretty sure I would have remorse.
G.O. hates it, so there’s that, too.
**Happily, I have seen at least one photo of what I really like.
Stay tuned for that!
