Basically, it was storage and a playroom. Neither of which are what a porch is supposed to function as!
So the other day, I said to mahself "Self, this is ridiculous! Let's have a makeover!"
And that's what I did. New cushion covers, new rug, some new little accessories, blinds, a garland, mirror, and voila! A functional porch :)
|I made this garland last night. Just cut up all my scraps into different size squares, sewed them all onto a ribbon and I was done. So easy, and now I get to see all of my favorite fabrics at once.|
|I have claimed the pink chair on the right as 'my seat'. I set my coffee on the sill, put my feet up and read the Word. Love.|
|I bought the lamp at the thrift store and painted it that cute yellow. I also got the green vase that same day.|
|This mirror was a yard sale find. $2! Can you believe it? I envisioned it turquoise right from the start.|
|The full view. Beautiful. This is where you will find me every spare moment I have.|
Isn't that so nice? I just love it. I've also been doing a little makeover in my bedroom. A fresh coat of paint, some new curtains and a refresher coat on the trim. I'll show you when it's done!
What are you doing today?
