Last fall when we repainted our home, I finally got my wish! Here are some scenes from my front porch. Unfortunately, no before shots were taken of the ceiling.
I wanted a very soft blue. An almost....is it blue? Not a slap you in your face, BLUE! BOO!
I think the first photo is truest to reality.
While we are out here, let me show you some more of the porch. The house is painted gray with black shutters. Although the original plan was to paint the shutters green. We still may do that.
This is a wicker set we have had for some time. It previously was white and we spray painted it brown a few years back. It is really beginning to show some wear.
If you see a thin layer of yellow on everything, that is the pollen we are having to contend with right now. A by-product of our lovely springs here in Georgia. A close-up of the pillows I am using right now.
The bottom green cushions stay there year round. The other pillows I change out according to the seasons.
Close-up of the table. I love this lantern. I bought it on clearance at Old Time Pottery because it was missing a glass pane on one side. I had full intention of getting another one cut. That was months ago. Oh well. This has been nice to use during the shorter days of winter. When we are expecting company in the evening, I light the candle in it. Hotter days of summer may mean the candle will melt so I will need to move it.
A full view of the front porch. My husband designed and built this front porch years ago. I love the columns on each side.
A friend gave me this wreath for my birthday this year. I think it is bright and springy!!
Our front door and side lights.
From the front porch, we have a wonderful view of Spring bursting forth before us.
Earlier today, my husband and I sat on the front porch for a while and enjoyed the change in weather as a storm is rolling in. Maybe the rain will knock off all this yellow pollen!
I am in love, love with my front porch and blue ceiling! Can you tell? Do you have a blue ceiling somewhere in your home? Do share!
Linking to the following fab parties!
