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.
The houndstooth rug is painted on….cute huh?! I loves it.
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.
Thanks for stopping by!
