Refreshing The Dreaming Porch

Beverly has decided the porch needed a face lift. She is painting and once again we are thinning and balancing everything.

These are the two new rugs I fell in love with at Big Lots. I knew I wouldn't get to use them for rugs! Bev had the perfect purpose for them.

This table with the pine cones and sweet gum balls is one I made about four years ago with scraps I found in the old barn. The legs are cedar tree cuts. It is edged with worn uneven two by fours. The center is an old piece of bead board I cut to fit and interlocked them for the top. Rustic was the look I was going for and I think I made it.
These two chairs are old office chairs that had been left out in the weather. Bev and I recovered the seats and placed this funky table there.
I am wanting to spend more time on this porch. We have more to do but getting closer.

I'm packing up my spinning wheel and driving down so I can sit on your porch and spin. OK?

love these colors, for wood to fabric (tables are cool, especially the wood one;) are the rugs draped?

Sweeeet! Looking good around there, Gail. That table is great! They sell that rustic look at the expensive stores, like Pottery Barn for BIG bucks!

I hope you get it done just the way you want it, so you can have many hours wiling away dreaming. :)
