Front Porch Makeover


Look what I did today!!!
A complete front porch makeover:

Before...

After!!!

Before...


After!!!


Just because:)
...and it's not even lunch time yet!!!

For those of you that know me, this is not my typical dose of reality. I love doing these "makeovers", but seldom do I get pictures of such. Thanks to blogging, I'm turning over a new leaf and hope it inspires someone else!



p.s. the leopard print seat cushions came from Garden Ridge. The 14" squares also came from GR, then had my VERY talented sis-in-law paint the monogram. One day I'll post about her, she could use her own though with ALL her talent and skills!!!

Fabulous...just like you my dear friend! I'm trying to take lessons from you when I decorate, however I seem to find myself becoming a "minimalist" as I age. :)

Looks fantastic. I wish we had a Garden Ridge. My mom had one in Ft. Lauderdale and it was a vacation stop every visit. Then it closed. Sigh. Your porch looks terrific!
