You know how it goes: if you paint one single thing, everything else around it will need to be painted, too.
After Maurie painted the house trim this weekend, the outdoor furniture looked so shabby, and not the good kind. I couldn't stand it, and spent yesterday giving most of our front yard and porch pieces a fresh coat of white paint. It was awful out -- 95 and really humid. But I was soooo glad when I walked outside early this morning and saw fresh, clean furniture!
I rewarded myself by making a new pillow for our vintage bench and doing a corner vignette.
These pieces won't be staying here, but the other side of the porch is still piled with painting supplies, until we get completely done with the front house trim. I'm looking forward to arranging our porch differently this fall.
I used the same technique as the burlap initial pillows to make this.
Given this week's unseasonal heat, I guess it was wise to choose kalanchoes rather than mums for the front porch.
Many of you asked yesterday about what was nibbling our pumpkins. Here's the culprit: Marvin!
Our spoiled squirrels are so tame that they come up and tap on the kitchen window when they want to be fed. This one follows me around the yard and eats right out of my hand.
I better go grab my little pumpkins before they get munched. Thanks for coming by to see my front porch vignette!
