Back Porch Reveal with New Paint Scheme~

I know y'all are awaiting the pictures of the house now that it has received a fresh coat of paint, but I need a day or two to finish up and get the pictures taken (the pinestraw is being delivered today, and my #2-the better photographer is sitting for her GRE).

So, I thought I would at least share some pictures of the back porch since we managed to get it put back together this past weekend.

I will let the pictures do the talking...


View looking from top of staircase toward house.

View looking the length of the porch out into our side yard.

I am loving the new door color, Underseas by Sherwin Williams. Planters-Southern Living at Home

Faux boxwood balls are from Hobby Lobby.

Bar-Home Goods, Lantern & Wine Bucket/Stand-Southern Living at Home, Tray and Trash can-Ikea,  Planters-Home Goods, Bottle Carrier-Pottery Barn, Chalkboard w/stand-gift from a friend, Clock and Thermometer-Lowes.

A little closer look.

Tea Towels-Target.
Chalkboard-repurposed frame I had with spray paint I also had on hand.  The chalkboard cut to size was purchased at Home Depot (no spraying this time).

Giant Clamshell-Wisteria, Shells-gathered over time on beach trips, Battery operated weather resistant votives-Target.

Fiddle leaf fig-Home Depot (it loves it out on the porch), Basket planter-bathroom trash can from Target.

We have three spider plants purchased at Lowes hanging from the porch.

Sign-painted by me.  The simplify is a vinyl applique I purchased awhile back from House of Smiths.

Love seat-Target, Throw Pillows-Pottery Barn. We have two matching chairs as well (you can catch a glimpse of them in the photo below.

Table-Ikea, Lantern and Planters-Southern Living at Home, Clam Shell & Wooden Tray-Home Goods.

A little closer look.
We are thrilled to finally have all the window replacements and painting behind us and are looking forward to enjoying many more summer afternoons out here.

What a lovely space to relax and sit with a glass of wine at the end of the day. Hope you have wonderful weather the remainder of the summer and enjoy all your hard work. The colors are just so soft and pretty :-)

OHH! LUCKY YOU! Actually, the color of your walls are exactly like mine! Our porch has been a haven of quietude and much creativity, and all I have there is a wicker settee, one small bistro table with a small bench and two small tables for setting down drinks.....and my husband says I have too much! HAH!

Lauren, thank you so much for visiting, and your daughter already started school? BLESS HER!

Enjoy your week! Anita
