A Whimsical Makeover: Our Porch

The porch on our house was one of the big selling features. It is currently a 3 seasons porch. Eventually we would like fancy new windows to help make it a year round usable room. However, we are first saving for hardwood floors in the living room. It just never ends. :)

Here is our porch the day we moved in:

It is a huge and amazing space.
We have taken down the light fixtures and are searching for something new. We would also love to paint the floors. Maybe in the Spring.

For now, here is our porch:

As you can is a favorite space for our dog, Bruce. 

We really wanted to create conversation areas. We have grouped seats together to help us with this. 

We also really wanted something facing the street. Our couch now allows us to watch the world go by. It is probably our favorite room in the house.

Thanks for stopping by. :)

  1. No wonder it is a favourite space! I love the brick walls and the mixes of rustic wood. What a great and large extra space to hang out in.

  4. Great porch.. you know, for now you can put
    up the clear plastic widow covering. I did this
    on ours in Illinois and it worked pretty well
    keeping the elements out and we were able
    to use the space on occasion...
    Love it!
