Back porch blues part 2

Now that the upper deck is done I was able to organize the porch below.  While the deck area was under construction all the patio furniture was stored in this area.  I still have a bit more decorating to do in the corner area and I am adding some curtains also.  I decided to use canvas paint tarps.  I have them already but I still need to get some rods so I will wait until next year to put them up.

I still need to get a table to put between the two chairs.  I found one at Goodwill but it might be too small.

I still have more ideas for the corner.  Right now I kept it simple.  I got the table from Goodwill.  It used to be black and white.  I like the blue and white theme much better.

 For now I kept the end tables pretty simple.  I have some candle holders that I painted to match the color scheme.  Next year I will add more details.  I like that they have the shelf underneath.  More room for decorating.

Now that I finally got this area done for this year it is time to get it decorated for Fall.  I probably won't start for a few weeks.  I think I will concentrate on getting the inside decorated this weekend.

  8. Absolutely gorgeous - your color scheme is my favorite and all the decor is lovely! Thank you for sharing this beautiful porch with us.

  9. Oh, Mercy! How I'd give anything to sit on this pretty porch! My porch right now is soaked in heavy, heaving, oppressing humidity, so there's no going out there for a few more weeks. Everything you've chosen is so light and airy looking. Especially the color scheme!
    Found you through Hymns and Verses, and so glad I did.

  10. Love your porch Jody. So fresh looking with all the pretty blue and green. Followed you from The Dedicated House. Have a wonderful weekend!
