Summer Porch

I was on the lookout for 2 chairs for the porch…

I had this vision in mind…chairs that you could envision looking great outside…

…..with the feel of indoor furnishings.

I was reading a post of Kelly’s at Eclectically Vintage…

………………..I heard the chorus of the Angels…singing Hallelujah……you found them!


She wrote about walking into Home Depot to buy paint…

…..and there it was…the set she was searching hither and yonder for.

After a couple of emails between Kelly and I, Kelly informed me that the set was on sale…half price!!

………………..I heard the chorus of the Angels again…..singing Hallelujah..Hallelujah.


I just wanted two chairs…you can only buy this style in a set….

…..but for half price…it was a no brainer!!…


The original intention was to add 2 chairs to the front porch…but now I have a love seat and table as a bonus…

… hence, plans changed…

And enter the snowball effect…moving furniture all around the porches…

The best place was on the upper back porch…


Previously we just had a table and two chairs in that space…

Now, we can have “company” out there…to sit and enjoy wonderful conversation, wave to the golfers….

…..and yell at the deer eating my plants!


And my rusty, chippy table fit perfectly between the loveseat and chair…

…..I think that table is due for a new paint job!


And KariAnne…I’ve been spraying my ivy with dish soap…The winnebago has left the building….




Added a couple of Pottery Barn outdoor pillows for that punch of color…

The table had this vignette yesterday…

Today, I added the patriotic tin of sunflowers I used for my dinner group tablescape….


These are a few photos of the porch before:





So thanks Kelly..for your help in bringing new life to this porch!..

Hope you enjoyed this and would love to hear from you!

I am joining:

  1. Oh my goodness, its just beautiful. No wonder you heard the Angels singing. And the PB pilows are just perfect! I love your little chippy table and I wouldn’t change a thing. What a comfy spot you have created to yell at the golfers and deer. heehee

  2. Shirley,
    So glad we both heard angels singing – at Home Depot no less! The furniture looks like it was sent from heaven. Glad you have the extra love seat – perfect for me when I come to visit! I’ll even help yell at the deer if you give me one of those tall glasses of iced tea!

    Here’s to our matching sets – I’ll think of you every time I’m on my patio!

  3. Shirley, the porch looks so pretty!! The chairs were meant to be…not to mention the “bonus” loveseat and table! This looks like the perfect spot to enjoy that glass of iced tea! The pillows add a lovely punch of color! You scored big time! I love it!

  4. Oh that is such a lovely set … and you’re giving us one porchers some porch envy with all that hassle you had moving your porch furniture around! Ha! But I love that you now have an uber stylish spot to yell at the deer eating your hydrangeas …



  5. Shirley – sharing your twin patio furniture on my FB page!

  6. Shirley, that set looks so nice on your porch. Glad you got a good buy on it. Not sure what happened to your last photo?

  7. Hi Shirley,

    Wow, I love your new porch furniture — what a great buy!! I love finding good bargains like that. ๐Ÿ™‚ It looks perfect on your porch; you have such a beautiful home with a nice view.

    Your vignette looks so cute on the table, and I love the patriotic touch. I hope you have a wonderful Fourth of July holiday (is it hot enough for you? ๐Ÿ™‚ ) BTW, I saw your picture on Susan at BNOTP’s blog post on the Haven blogging conference. How nice that you were able to attend! Sorry I haven’t been in touch lately; I’m trying to put my house back together.



  8. Shirley, This is perfect. You would never have thought..Home Depot. Half price awesome. Love the extra touches. I saw the iced tea glasses early on!
    What is this about the dish soap and the winnabago?
    Is that a new insecticide?
    Have a wonderful Fourth!

  9. Sounds like you found a great deal and a really nice set, Shirley! I love the chairs. They do like something you would find inside the house with that look. I think my ivy has had it. I have a feeling I’ll be picking up a faux ivy bush to replace it next week!

  10. I LOVE the new furniture, Shirley! I really love the lines of the chairs. I haven’t seen this at Home Depot. It looks awesome on your porch. Having been to your house, I can just imagine it on the upper porch.
