Pimpin' Out the Porch

Our back porch is nothing to get excited about. Unfortunately, the only thing it has in common with this space is that it's also long and somewhat narrow.



Now that it's warmer and we're spending more time outdoors, I'm on a mission to spruce it up a bit. The new-to-us used furniture from some family friends is really really nice.... but not the most comfortable. And it's not the prettiest shade of brown, either. So I'm going to start with some cushions and pillows:



These are from World Market - inexpensive and colorful. Fun.



We could also use a new rug or mat by the back door. How fun would something like this be??




Accessories... I love lanterns and candles. And pots full of plants. And twinkle lights. And old signs on the walls. Brightly colored cushions. And stone ornaments and statuary.







Hopefully soon our back patio can look something like this: inviting and comfortable.




Have a great weekend!!!

I love those beverage holders. I wanted those at the wedding but they didn't fit my budget. I've seen monogrammed ones. I should get one now.
