I am having porch dreams. Dreams of painting furniture, adding flowers in baskets, tall glasses of sweet tea, and warm days. Absolutely itching to get outside and play on the porch!
We live in an old farmhouse and have a side porch. It was empty, no furniture, and in need of some attention. February days cause my mind to think about projects for the house. I decided that I wanted pink furniture on this porch.
Last year, I was able to get the furniture in place, I chose to challenge myself to create what I wanted instead of purchasing something. My handy husband helped me! He made a bench from an old headboard, a coffee table from an old pallet and a potting bench from some old decking boards. It was a start.
There are bigger and better plans for this year. I want to make pillows and add more decorations, but want to keep the theme of using what I have or can pick up at yard sales for this porch. There is much to do, but I welcome the challenge!
