A Side Porch: Before and After

The side porch of my clients home is where most friends
come to visit.
(Before)
She wanted it warm and welcoming for visitors,
as well as a nice place
for the family to relax .(Before)
There is now no doubt that it is a place that welcomes guests.(After)
New chairs with ottomans and the window table call for you to sit and relax.
(After)
Even the birdhouse got a mini-makeover.(After)
The new porch light fixture is a beautiful addition. (Before)
(After)
Just look at the detail.Now the porch better reflects the beauty of the family and their lifestyle.

Very pretty; I especially love the light fixture. I'm always amazed by how much a light can change a space.

Wish I could find an outdoor safe chandelier in my price range for my front porch. I'm always on the lookout! Thanks for the inspiration!

I looks so yummy Joy! I've always wished our home had a covered porch like that instead of a cement stoop. I'll bet she's loving her new place!

That's so pretty. Now all you need is a nice mat in front of those chairs and it'll be perfect.

Very nice! Are those the chairs that Big Lots has right now? I look at them every time I pop in there - I want to pick up a pair of the red ones for the upstairs deck at my vacation cabin...

Beautiful! Not often are we treated to a porch makeover, so this is very special. Thanks for the chance to see it.

If I was your client you would get an extra gift. So smart to remove that enclosing metal railing. That alone changed it. A+++++ job.

I love the way you decorate. With your flags I kept thinking that I might be able to do that. It's all in having the idea.
Nice post !

Joy,
I love the porch and I love the seat painted bright yellow. So welcoming. Mostly, I love your quote by President Uchtdorf. Instantly I know what you are about. I'm your newest follower.
