Porch Sneak Peek

I posted earlier this week about my Spring Cleaning and the Spruce-up of my front porch here. I thought I would show you my porch emptied out and a little sneak peek of some of the elements that are going to be on the porch.

These are the items that came off of my porch. All of these will be going back on the porch except for one. You will have to see which one was eliminated in the reveal post.( If that ever gets to happen at the rate I am going)
front porch clean-up 003Here is my porch all emptied out, ready for its sweep down and hose down. You can see some of the spider webs by the timer on the wall. We killed two black widows. Now you have to understand this is where my chair sits. I have my coffee there in the mornings, Yikes. Don’t worry Hubby sprayed after it was all cleaned up. It is a small porch measuring 16ft long by 4 ft deep but it is big enough to have  two chairs comfortably.
Now for a few pictures hinting of what is to come!!

That is all the hints you get for now. I think you can tell what colors I am using, can’t you?!

Can't wait to see what you do! We are trying to figure out a way to "make" a porch for our home. Does not have one, so we are putting on our thinking caps and getting alot of inspiration from blogs. Considering a limestone "floor" and a pergola type thing coming from the front, but this, like alot of things right now are going on the back burner :) Hugs, Kat

Being able to use a porch year round is one thing I envy about you Californians. I can picture you sitting outside having coffee eveyday in beautiful sunshine, surrounded by all the greenery and beautiful flowers. I'm sure the redo will be lovely like everything else you do. Can't wait to see!

Not fair! I want to see it now! I know it will be beautiful! I just did a spring cleaning too. Had the whole house and brick patio pressure washed. What a nightmare! Water came in every window and under every door, but hey, it's clean now! "Enjoy the process" of making your front porch gorgeous. Can't wait to see!

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

It is going to look great! I'm always amazed when I see people have lamps on their porches. Am I the only one who gets wind and rain? Can't wait to see the result!
