So. The front porch. It looks like this from the outside (please ignore all of the overgrown plants):
Let's look together at the horror that was the front porch for the last year and a half:
Dingy, dirty and a total mismatch of furniture. Somehow leaves always collect in the corners of the porch along with our donations for Goodwill/ReStore (you're probably assuming that crazy table got donated - I actually painted it and brought it inside, which you can see here).
So last year we decided to start "The Porch Makeover 2011" which unfortunately has turned into "The Porch Makeover of 2012." In this post I showed you how we painted the front door and changed out a light fixture. You gotta start somewhere. Unfortunately the makeover didn't get much further than that.
Then this past spring we decided to give it another go. We washed down all the siding, painted the insides of the porch a brighter white, painted the bench blue to match the door, and added a patio set from Target.
It definitely looks MUCH better than the before, but it's still not as inviting and colorful as I had envisioned. I'm having a tough time deciding exactly what to do in this room, but I'm hoping that whatever it is won't take me another year.
Do you have any areas of your house that seem to take forever to decorate? Am I the only person who feel like their home is never "done?"
