For 4 years now, I have had a dream of what I wanted my porch to be like, I wanted it to be an extension of my home, and I wanted it to be beautiful. The front of your house is the first thing people see, and I wanted it to make a good impression. Here is what it looked like before, not bad, but no WOW factor.
After years of dreaming, I finally have my porch the way I want it!!!
I Bought my oval wreath at Tia Pan - it was pricey but I had a rare coupon, so I splurged!
I wanted a wreath to match my door one, so I bought a boxwood garland for $6 at Tia Pan, and wrapped and wired it to a $1 wire frame from Hobby Lobby (TOTAL = $7!)
I bought this table on KSL for $7.50:
I used some leftover red spray paint to beautify it. I also added some black glaze to darken and antique it a bit, but I took this photo before I did that. oops! Here's the after:
I bought $12 worth of fabric at JoAnnes for the pillows, used my serger to sew a 16x16" square, then I stuffed it with stuffing I have had for years and stitched them closed!
It was a long time coming, but WAY worth the wait!!! My husband and I spend so much time in our little rockers, (funny, I always thought we would be old when we would sit on rockers on the porch - maybe we are getting old?) Those rockers have already had miles rocked away on them, LOVE it!!! (Just one more look!)
Now I can sit back and enjoy a warm summer in the shade of my lovely porch!
