We did a little sprucing up on the front porch for a fun project with Kirkland’s this weekend, and I’m excited to share a few photos of what we pulled together!
If you’ve followed along here for a while, you know that we recently had the porch painted (Palladian Blue on the ceiling, Simply White on the house, Caviar on the door and Platinum on the floor) and I’ve been looking forward to doing some decorating ever since. I’m taking things slowly as usual though because…well…there’s no rush! Just like the rooms inside our home, I just want to have fun with the process…not be stressed out by it! 🙂
Kevin and I picked up the (giant!) ferns at Fitzpatrick Greenhouse in Fitzpatrick, Alabama. They were only 12 bucks a piece, but I swear someone could charge admission for the drive out to that place. If you’ve ever taken the trip from Pike Road to Fitzpatrick you know exactly what I mean. Pastures and peacefulness for DAYS. It’s glorious.
Here’s a peek at the area of the porch we had fun playing with:
I don’t always like to bring my cell phone out onto the porch, but if I’m out there for a while, I do need to keep an eye on the time (especially if it’s right before I need to go pick up Steevenson from school) so that scale/clock has been such a helpful piece to have around. And I love how the faux flowers gracefully bend over the top of it.
I’m actually sitting in that rocking chair typing this blog post out right now. It’s become my favorite spot to sit. Especially when Kevin’s in the other rocking chair, Kit-Cat is curled up in the corner, and Steevenson is playing with his toys on the rug. It may have taken us a while to start pulling this space together but boy was it worth the wait!
