Porchalicious!

A few weeks ago I pulled up to my house and realized that I couldn't even tell I had porch furniture. Our porch is more than half the length of our house. But I was not utilizing that space well at all. And our furniture that we did have blended into our house, so you couldn't even tell we had any unless you really looked. I took this first picture after I had added a few things already. Oops.
The only thing on our porch were the chairs.

First, I had to give them some color and pillows!  They could no longer blend in.

Next every girl needs her flowers, right??  I had a plain flower pot that I had gotten at the Goodwill months before, and new it would be perfect painted!  Let me just say, I PRAY this flower does not die!  I have no green thumb what so ever!  I have yet to keep anything alive, and I have bought flowers every year for three years now.  Sad, I know.

Tada!  I SO love it!  It jumps out at me now every time I drive up.  I see many, many nights out on the front porch with my love and kids watching them catch fireflies.  Or maybe just eating some fresh cut watermelon.  Can't you just imagine it?
*I have been asked what color I used on the chairs, it does not have a name.  I bought a can of paint that was "messed up" at the store.  Not that this will help, but the hubby calles it easter egg.  HA!

I will be linking up to these fabulous parties.



Have A Wonderful Day!!

  9. I am SO glad so many people like it as much as I do! ;) Thanks so much for your kind words.

    I primmed the chairs, then painted then. The color I used was a "mess up" at the store, so it does not have a name. :(
