Upper Porch for Spring 2014

The moment the temps reached the 70’s . .

~ ~ I was off and running to Lowe’s to get some plants for the upper porch.

The upper porch was truly sad with the lack of flowers.

I found the yellow and taupe outdoor pillows at HomeGoods . .

~ ~ thought that they would go well with the yellow walls on the porch.

However, with all this rain, hopefully it will wash all the pollen off the trees!

Ever So Clever, Ever So Pretty Friday, #8 {Porch Makeover}

Happy Friday everyone!

This week I am presenting my upper back porch area that was inspired by Kelly, from Eclectically Vintage.

When she posted about her new patio furniture last year, I headed to Home Depot to buy that beautiful patio set.

You can see the original post here.

Today, I present you with this year’s Spring Porch makeover.

It is not a large space, but very cozy and perfect for that early morning cup of coffee…

…..or a calm, relaxing space at the end of the day.

And..here is Kelly’s beautiful patio…

I just love her vintage slider too!!

I added floral pillows from Lowe’s Home Improvement.

I was eyeing these great Ikat pillows from Pottery Barn, but these were $13/ea compared to the Pottery Barn at $50/ea.

…..hopefully one day I can see the PB pillows on sale or at the outlet!

During the Spring, it is so nice to be able to see the flowering trees from the porch.

One corner of the porch…I plan to mount this wall hanging on a canvas soon.

This corner has my favorite piece of patio furniture…..my tea cart.

My very favorite garden and gift center is being liquidated and sold and they started their sale yesterday.

…..I purchased the lantern and the burlap canvas art on sale.

The small Eugenia topiary is from Lowe’s, flower pot from HomeGoods….

…..the bird plate and birds were a gift from my granddaughter.

This burlap canvas lends to a pretty texture.

The armillary is new to the space…I purchased it from One Kings Lane several months ago.

The coffee table has two trays of the pretty “aluminum cane” that lift up for easy serving…

…..I love this owl (a gift from a friend) that goes so well the with turquoise flower pots.

I hope you enjoyed my 2013 Spring Porch…that was inspired by the talented Kelly of Eclectically Vintage.

Have a beautiful weekend!!
