I got a sweet email this week that I wanted to share with you…
I don’t have a URL blog, so I couldn’t update to your August DIY
party. So I’m sending pictures of my side porch that was (almost..) finished
in August. I still need to highlight the raised surfaces on the coffee
table, put family snap shots on top, and cover with a piece of glass.
The inspiration was your drop cloth tutorial! I recently moved to a new house
after living in the same place for 30 years. A must for my new house was a
screened porch. I brought my rocker, porch swing, and wind chimes from the
old side porch. A friend found the wicker set in a yard sale and ‘gifted’
that and most of the cushions. I spray painted every thing… picking up odd
furniture at Goodwill and Habitat stores. The drop cloth curtain adds
privacy and blocks the sun. I trimmed the top with some fringe, and I love
it. I’m able to sit on the porch and watch the birds on the deck. My
favorite time to be on the porch is late at night or early mornings with a
cup of coffee and the newspaper.
Thanks for the inspiration. My friends love it,
Judy sent me some pictures of her new side porch, and I think it turned out lovely.
Ya’ll KNOW that I love the colors Judy used to decorate her porch. Look at those beautiful reds, blacks, tans, and greens! Perfection!
She has such a wonderful view out her side porch! It certainly is a great place for coffee and a newspaper (and to catch up on all the great posts at Beneath My Heart!) :)
