My Beautiful Summer Porch

My Beautiful Summer Porch

It was past time to repaint the front porch floor, so we painted it last weekend.  That also meant painting over the old painted rug.  Even though I loved that rug, I couldn’t do the same thing again.  What’s the fun of keeping it the same when you can do something fresh and different?!

I really liked the black and white though, so I decided to keep the colors but tone down the pattern a little and move some of the furniture around for a completely different look.  Buh-bye rocking chairs, hello pew.

I will do a tutorial on how we did it next week, but I couldn’t wait to show you the porch all cozy and ready for you to stop over for a visit!  I’ll have water with peppermint or citrus essential oils all ready for ya!

I picked up my Relax sign at a roadside stand a few weeks ago.  It’s the perfect message for our guests when they arrive.  I want it to be a place where people can rest and find peace.

And we got the bunting and flag screens back out….they just make me happy.

I really wish you could smell it out there.  The vines are to.die.for.  I also put some potted plants in old buckets and added my collection of gas cans that I have gathered over the years.  No reason for gas cans.  I just like ‘em.

I filled my little flea market shopping cart with games and balls to encourage family togetherness.

 Now that the porch is dressed up for summer I want to have a picnic or something.
