The weather has been fairly warm here for awhile and we've needed to spruce up the front porch.
Last fall we painted the ceiling blue and painted the fan with aluminum paint.
Now we've added a coffee table made out of an old window and table legs.
Having some of my buckets underneath makes for an interesting view.
This is an easy project; just attach 4 legs to an old window.
Love that the old hardware is still on the window.
We did have a metal "G" on the front door but my husband and son hated it
because it made a loud noise hitting against the door whenever we opened and closed it.
So, I put this metal flower pocket back on the door with some flowers.
I'll be on the hunt for something else to put there.
I didn't see when I took this picture that my husband had garden paper bags in the rocking chair.
After I saw the picture, I kind of like the look of the bags. It makes me think I need a
burlap or feedsack pillow in that chair.
Last year we added this birdhouse to the front garden. I loved the chippy finish on it.
However, the paint color on the house was pinkish light tan and it just didn't work with our
fresh white columns and the perfect shade of blue on the stand that is attached to it.
So, I painted it white. I didn't prep it or clean it up much or sand it. I just slapped white paint on it.
Do you know what that means? That means the white paint will chip pretty quickly so
I will have a chippy white finish in no time. That's what I like.
Our poor old double rocker is falling apart so we may be on the lookout for some new porch furniture.
I'm not sure what kind I want so we'll see where the hunt leads us.
