Our Newest Porch Updates

Wednesday, September 21, 2016

So as you know, our screened in porch is where I spend most of my time. I love it and it's like being outside without the annoying bugs.  I mean I literally spend every waking moment that I can out here.  So, I decided to spruce it up a bit more going off of my list of a few things I wanted changed about it.
1. More Seating
2. More Storage
3. Less Clutter

 So I did just that!
 I found another couch to go with the loveseat we already had.  This one was a 3 seater sofa.  I love the loveseat, don't get me wrong but I can't really stretch out on it when I lay down to read.  I also take naps in the afternoons on weekends and it's quite uncomfortable being all folded up. 
 Of course I went crazy trying to figure out how to position everything.  I even made little blue prints for all of my options.  In the end I settled for having everything at an angle instead of aiming straight ahead. It actually opened it up much more. 

 There's still plenty of room for the dining area.

Fresh flowers really give it that added homey touch!

 So since I keep my gardening supplies out here I got another utility cart from Amazon and VOILA!


What's your ideal outdoor living space look like?

  1. It looks FABULOUS and what a fantastic size it is! Wow! Great for entertaining too without having to mess up the other parts of the house. It looks so inviting!! What are you going to do when the season changes? Is all the furniture able to withstand the cold/damp? What sort of covering will you use for the furniture? catchatwithcarenandcody

    1. Thanks Caren! Yep when it gets cold out I just move the furniture into a cluster in the middle of the porch. Its all outdoor furniture so it handles it well. Unless we have a huge snow though, it usually stays dry

  2. Such a beautiful and spacious porch. Totally loved the fabric of sofas. Beautifully dedcorated porch.

  3. This is really beautiful. You have done great work and also shared great tips. I'll definitely follow your tips.
