Meet Our Back Porch
Hello! One of my 2013 home goals is to spruce up my back porch. I have a list of things I want done and I am trying to have most finished by the summer. I have this wonderful relaxing and comfortable looking inspirational space in mind when I think of what I want for my porch area.
I joined Bloglovin' a site that helps you follow blogs you read by letting you know when they update. When Google announced that they will be doing away with Google Reader on July 1st I had to come up with a way to read the blogs I follow. I mostly read my blogs from my phone and Bloglovin' has an app so I am in business.
Isn't that porch just lovely? I just want to sit there and have a cup of tea! It has everything I want in a porch. A nice comfortable sitting area, fans, and curtains.
With my Easter Egg Hunt fast approaching, it's this weekend, I needed to get a few things checked off my list. First on the list was a good cleaning. I cleared the space of all the junk I had tossed back there last fall and gave it a good scrub down. I had posted a picture of me on instagram washing the porch, did you see it?
Here is my porch area after the decluttering and cleaning. I didn't want to frighten you with any before the cleaning pictures! :) It is a nice size and can accommodate a large sitting area.
I will be back tomorrow to share my rug choice paired with my outdoor furniture. To make me accountable I will list my to-dos for this space.
Back Porch To-Do List
Purchase an outdoor rug
Add vibrate fluffy cushions and pillows
Plant some shade loving plants in colorful planters
Hang outdoor curtains
Install a ceiling fan
I am super excited about this space, it is coming together quickly. Can't wait to start spending more time back here come warmer weather. My computer is back after a weeks stay with the Geek Squad! I'm happy to be back blogging, I have a lot to share.
See ya soon!
