Wanted to share how I used a fireplace screen as a trellis and a kinda-sorta porch railing.

Yes, they are my version of talavera tiles from Mexico. The real ones aren't frost-proof, as I would need here in Missouri. I used patio paint and I think they will last for many years. I wanted to do something different for the porch.

Your porch is very inviting. Just lovely!

I can hardly wait to show my daughter your tile work. She's been trying to come up with an idea for the porch on her new house. Your porch is surprisingly like hers. She's gonna love your decorations!!
