I've been inspired by this picture & The Nester to redo my back porch.
Doesn't this look so inviting?!
This is what my back porch looked like...my unfortunate starting point!
Hopeless, confused & cluttered with toys!
And this is what my back porch looks like now!!
I'm in LOVE!
Aren't you in love??
And this is how I did it. Very simple really.
I went back to the basics.
I de-cluttered & cleared out everything.
First, I added a rug & rearranged the chairs to seem more inviting.
I grabbed 2 wicker chairs from my front porch to complete a sitting area.
I then added drapes to make the space seem more like a living room.
I used broadcloth from Hobby Lobby for $1.99/yd + a 40% coupon!
What a deal!
But the best part...NO sewing!!
I picked up a few plants from Lowes & added those.
Then I "shopped the house" for 2 end tables and other knick knacks.
A cozy outdoor space that prompts relaxation!! Despite the Texas heat!!
Do you have a back porch that's in need of some lovin'?? Tell us about it!!
