Our Back Porch Reveal

Hello Friends! I have been participating in an Outdoor Extravaganza link party co-hosted by Our Fifth House. This weeks installment is Decorating. I thought it was high time I shared with you my outdoor curtains I hung around my back porch. It brings the indoors out and adds a layer of sophistication to the porch.
I just adore my curtains! They are so perfect in the space. I love when a breeze comes through and the curtains sway in the wind.
My porch is a place for me to relax in the mornings before the heat sets in. I can have a cup of tea and catch up on some reading or I can sit with my bambini and have a glass of lemonade. Lemonade and sweet tea are my go to drinks for warmer weather.
I purchased my outdoor curtains an year ago and I am happy with my decision on sheers. They don't provide privacy but we aren't in need of privacy. They are aesthetically pleasing and soften the edges of the porch. I purchased only 4 panels and quickly realized I need at least 4 more in the near future.
I have accomplished all that I wanted to do for my back porch this year. I still have a couple of items to complete before the space is completely done but for now I will draw my attention elsewhere.

The outdoor rug we chose is holding up nicely in the elements and I am loving our vibrate cushions and pillows we added to our existing patio furniture. I shared with you last week my 'made for the shade planter' that is loaded with colorful plants and flowers. The space is nearly complete, here is whats left to-do.


Back Porch To-Do List

Tell me what you think about our back porch and our outdoor curtains. Next week I will show you how I created my curtain rods that was less than $10! See ya soon!
