We’ve made a lot of changes to our porch and the landscape on the front of our house since the time we moved in almost a year ago. We tore down the porch and rebuilt a bigger one and added some greenery. This is what we started with:
And this was our porch after all that stuff:
A little better, right?! Do you notice what’s missing? …something to sit on! We have two rocking chairs that we picked up from our neighbor’s yard sale awhile back. We’ve been using these, but they don’t match. The light blue one clearly isn’t working.
We’d been thinking we would make some type of swing to go where the chairs are. But when we came across some cool hammock swings on eBay for $30 each, we snagged them in a hurry. Check them out!
We relocated the fern to the other side of the 4×4 pole, and it actually makes the porch look bigger.
The porch overhang keeps them covered, so I’m hoping they don’t get too weathered. If we know it’s going to storm, we can easily bring them inside though. I love the touch they bring to the porch! Quite a change from a year ago
