A Sunporch

 
There is a porch on the side of the house, it will become the new sun porch.
 
 
This porch will be screened in.
 
 
It was considered a bonus space. A space that needed some love and some pink furniture!
 
 
I gathered some pieces from here and there, painted everything pink. The bench is a found headboard. The pink shelf was found too.

My brother tore down his deck and we got this wood. My husband made a potting bench from that wood.
 
 
A few potted plants were added and the porch was complete. The only cost was the plants and the paint.
 
 
It was fun to create that porch!

Now there will be a screened porch and a new look is in order.

The painter will paint the floor this week, everything will be the same color as the front porch and a new door will be installed. The fun begins soon! Furniture will need to be repainted and the "new" porch needs a new look.

    I have a swing on my front porch...if we ever get the back porch covered to be able to sit out there...ROCKING CHAIRS are on the "to hunt for list"

    1. Thank you Pat! It seems that there is always something to do isn't there? But I guess if there wasn't anything that needed doing, I would go looking for something! Hope you find a great deal on those rockers! Thanks for visiting!!!

    1. Thanks Stephanie! I am anxious to have it finished now! My brother jokes that he had that wood aged just for me, that is why he built the deck! LOL! I was happy to get the wood and put it to good use! Thanks for visiting!!!

  11. Awww, gee. I'm wishing for a screened in patio now. It would be wonderful to sit outside early morning and in the evenings. Yours is even more special with the wood from your brother's deck and that cool furniture and potting bench.
