Our covered porch is an extension of our home......
Well our wee covered porch is off our kitchen.
So I decided to redecorate our porch to compliment our kitchen.
As you may know in past posts that our kitchen is in red and white toile accents.
Red and white transferware........ need I say more. soooo
I set about and made new slips for the cushions on the bench and chairs .
I had a drop cloth just waiting to evolve into pillow slips and these were so
easy to make. Rather then using zippers or an envelope I used ties.
Crying out for help....NEW CUSHIONS.........
I had the red pillows that I had just made last year in out door fabric but I needed
something with a softer look. So I made these new red and white ticking pillows.
I love how they turned out.
Looks cozy enough to have an afternoon siesta.
I had the old sewing machine and just added tempered glass to the top for
the corner table.
Added a few accents ... refinished another tray, whitewashed an old toolbox
that I made a few years ago.
Great for holding mags and or plants...Let your imagination run.
Do you see it... My french bistro set fits nicely in a corner.
Oh I see many mornings out here having my coffee watching my garden grow.
Hearing the birds sing, the water trickle from the pond and everything being so tranquil.
Here is our view off the porch looking onto our deck and beyond.
We have this small part
fenced in to protect our dogs from nigh time predators.
If you look far enough you can see our veg garden that is why my hose is on the fence
for easy watering.
This picture is from last year showing our screened in gazebo.
The back deck gets full sun till late in the evening. Lay back and let your imagination
take you to south France... We could be there....
Have a great week!
