Creating a Cottage Porch
This week I've started getting our front porch ready for Spring in spite of the rainy, gloomy weather we've been having. Yesterday I bought two wicker chairs at Walmart (great price!) and some pretty floral cushions and put a small wooden antique table between them with a little palm in a red pot. It looks nice! Mr. Wonderful likes it too but asked me an interesting question last evening. "Can you hang things on the wall on the porch?" I had never really given that a thought but now it's stuck in my head, of course. :) So I Googled it and found several different ideas.
Porch Rules.....I like this! Found this one on eBay. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Primitive-Shabby-PORCH-Rules-Typograhpy-Word-Art-Subway-Wood-Sign-Wall-Decor-/261150950109
Wrought Iron Medallion....from Etsy....very pretty! https://www.etsy.com/listing/108824236/large-wrought-iron-wall-decor-metal-wall?ref=market
A window for the front porch....I really like this idea! And the link gives you instructions although I already have some ideas of my own for this, and just recently saw some old window frames at my favorite antique shop. :) http://www.front-porch-ideas-and-more.com/porch-makeover-3.html
....and here are two ideas I found on Pinterest. Real artwork on the wall on one, and lots of stuff on the wall in the second one....hmmmm! http://pinterest.com/carolynjjohnson/porch-monkey/
Well, lots of good ideas here but I'm really leaning toward the "porch window". What do you think?
