Screened Porches Are Made For Decorating
|June 27, 2012||Posted by Helen under Home Decor & Travel|
Have you ever wondered why anyone, who has a nice screened porch would hesitate to make it an extension of their home’s living space? Well, yes, I’m guessing we all have or now that we think about it. Huh?
Always in my mind, there were to be lots of plants and especially ferns hanging in those back corners of the porch! It kept sitting there eating at me. And then it was like a today is the day moment. There had to be more things. Even when I was buying a few things here and there…that porch was right in the middle of it. Just couldn’t let go of the ideas. Yes, even when I bought that small table, that doubles as a stool at time, I still thought it will land on that very porch or else! Or else what? It fit perfectly in our “pool powder room” off our deck. Finally a year or more ago, it moved to the porch…never to return to that powder room.
That stool/table sits right in front of the “Red Cabinet” and even acts as a support to keep the right door open during special times. Usually, with a plant on top. See this link:
Maybe after viewing the above link, you’re thinking that I really meant it when I said more was needed/wanted. Yes, and still there’s another item or two that would be great to have. One is to have outdoor carpet laid on the floor. Painting it is too much maintenance. Outdoor carpet is much easier to clean year round; especially during pollen weeks!!
Here’s three great looking garden seats, that I am considering. The one that joins the porch might push that stool/table to another location.
Each of the three are from Ross Dress For Less, which is a great shop for many decor items as well as clothes, shoes, etc. Which one would you choose for my porch? Would you try more than one out? Would love to hear your thoughts. Like the old stool still works great..skip the garden seat! The timing is right as 2 of the 3 are on sale this week probably won’t last long. Squeal tires if you want one, but do be careful driving, please!!!
Won’t you join me in visiting these blog parties this week, please?
