Lately, I find myself spending more and more time on my back porch instead of my front porch swing!
The back has a wonderful view of our farm and all the sights and sounds that come with it.
The afternoon sun is not an issue and neither is ANY hint of the outside world.
This porch is directly off of my coffee room and kitchen, so this is where I grow our herbs.
And look at this twig plant stand I found at a second hand shop the other day!! My herb baskets fit PERFECTLY on it.
This stand is the finishing touch that I needed to complete my favorite outdoor sitting area.
The porch is a collected look just like the inside of my house.
The center "coffee table" is not an ideal height, but it will have to work for now.
And those gliding chairs ,we just refinished, were my parents, and used to be green....amazing what a little spray paint, sanding, and new stain can do!
I love using inside elements, outside! This rug is an old favorite of mine, and since it hasn't rained in FOREVER, it stays out most of the time. It's a bit softer than most outdoor rugs on the market, and because it was not expensive (and washable), no worries for me!!
Here is the opposite side....a cheap, lounge chair bought at Target for around $80, a pillow for comfort, and see that awesome twig lantern? I also snagged that at the same consignment shop I purchased the twig table ....pretty good find, huh?
I know summer is all about color....but I always sway toward outdoor colors...
Green and Brown to be exact.
Those, to me, have a soothing, calming effect.
Now you have seen my best place to start and finish my day...if you are looking for me, you know where to find me!
