Porch Makeover Pt 2
If you read my Porch Makeover Pt 1, you saw my death trap of a front porch turn into a clean and safe but very plain front porch. To me it became a blank canvas just waiting for me to fill with color and the perfect place to display my crafts. (Ok, it was a place to move the crafts that were overtaking my livingroom.)
As we all know, everything I make has that “Rustic” look to it. (Rustic meaning, I used sandpaper to cover mistakes.) I love the touchable and well worn look. I want people to feel comfortable touching it. I want people to enjoy sitting on my porch and have lots to touch and look at.
I want a comfortable place to remember and make memories.
This old guy sat all alone in the back yard for a year or so. I needed extra seating, so I brought him in, cleaned him up and gave him a nice corner to sit in. He just seem to fit right in and to me he looks very happy.
Last but never least, The Bear. Every family needs a bear right? He traveled all the way from Oregon with us and we have had to replace his lantern and a bit of paint to his fur, but we love him just the same. He is a very fond memory maker.
I hope you enjoyed this little tour of my front porch and I hope you were able to relax, smile and gather some inspiration. Projects like this do not have to be expensive or professional. Let your imagination do the work while you play. If it makes you smile it was worth it!
