Last year we added on a screened in porch (almost a necessity in buggy Hotlanta) and I’m just now finishing up decorating it. Well I got a good start on having half of it done!

This is the mirror that I painted with that pretty blue oops paint. I am actually getting rid of a piece of furniture in my dining room! I know….most people seem to add furniture to their rooms. But it’s not a big room and I don’t want to stuff it full of furniture. Although this leaves me with the challenging dilemma of what to do with all the plates & teacups in that piece. So I’m putting some of it out here for now. I may sell some of it…I’m not really sure yet.
I put some of my cloches on the bottom. This buffet used to be in my dining room before we took down the outside wall and put in french doors. Now there’s just no room for it. But I like it out here. This is the piece I planned on painting a bright surfboard yellow. My husband likes it as is – what do you think? Paint or don’t paint?
This is half of the porch – the dining area. You can see the chairs I showed before.
I still have tons more to do but I wanted to show you all what I’ve been working on – well one of the things I’m working on, because the other is that I’m re-doing my dining room and building a little patio in my veggie garden! I drink lots of coffee!!
So I have the other half of the porch to do – the seating area. But I’m looking for some Sunbrella or other indoor outdoor fabric to recover my cushions. I bought some cute throw pillows at Home Depot on clearance for $7 but they didn’t have the coordinating love seat etc cushions. I guess I can use a Jo-Ann coupon. I already tried Hobby Lobby but they didn’t have any of that fabric at all. I’ll look online too.
Above is the porch as it looks from the outside. It’s really our favorite room in the whole house!
I’m putting together a post of money saving tips from the comments on the post below. So if you haven’t already left one and would like to, there’s still time (until Friday). Or if you’ve thought of something else feel free to email me or comment again. I’ll try to have that post ready for Sunday or Monday. Saturday is my husband’s birthday (the big 50!!) so I know I won’t be doing anything but celebrating on Saturday!
Thanks for stopping by!
