Well, my little porch on my craft/storage workroom is done!! We have worked on it off and on since spring but it finally is completely finished - except for one small thing and I'll get to that later on.
Remember the progression of the old front door and the pallets for steps?
Remember the old headboard I tore apart and used for the railing?
And the $5.00 posts I'd had in the storage building for years?
Well, all put together, this is what I ended up with!! I couldn't just have a porch and no decor now could I?
I found this rattan shelf for $10.00 at a sale and it fit perfectly on the side of the porch.
I got some inexpensive lace panels and put a rod at the top and the bottom of the back side of the porch and ran the panels thru the rods. That way, I can take them down when the weather gets bad.
Remember the delicate birdcage and stand I found a few weeks ago? I sprayed it and filled the cage with little live plants and some fall leaves.
I made a mistake by painting the porch white - it showed every footstep. So, what do you do? You paint a rug on the porch, right?
Here are the stepping stones I painted earlier in the summer in the various colors. My one thing to do next summer is to try and plant that Irish moss between all of the stepping stones.
And here is my cute Koi fish. He'll probably be hibernating for the winter when the weather changes. It's nice to have a Koi and not have to tend to a pond. LOL
The chair was Landen's and I wanted to enjoy it so I put it out with a few decorations.
The scarecrow on the front door I have had for years.
So, I hope you have enjoyed the journey with me on my little front porch out back. I wish I could tell you the inside is just as cute - BUT, it is a mess. Loaded to the hilt. But, I will work on that.
This was truly a recycling venture!!
Till next time, Judy
