Screened Porch Love

If you came over to visit me today, we would definitely bring our sweet iced tea and have a seat on our screened porch. It is one of my favorite places to study my Bible, read a book, or take a little siesta.

I bought this aluminum glider, which I think is from the 50's or 60's, at a garage sale last summer. I gave it several coats of white spray paint, and since it was cushion-less, I tried my hand at reupholstering. 

The cost of foam for the cushions about caused me to have a heart attack, so I ripped up an old couch we were going to get rid of anyway, and used the foam from it. (Thanks to the clerk at Jo-Ann fabrics for the idea!)

This is the perfect spot for a nap. My tall husband can even get comfy on it.

Here is a close-up of the table my dad made for us out of an old chicken crate I had in the basement. Many of the yardsticks are very old and came from businesses that used to be in our community. I had fun searching for them, and they are quite a conversation piece for company. I got the idea for this project from The Lettered Cottage.

We enjoy having breakfast on this little table, which I purchased cheap at an auction. Note to self: get rid of that TV antenna. It isn't even hooked up! Ugly, ugly, ugly.

I love this little chandelier hanging over the table!

Old metal lawn chairs -swoon! It doesn't show well in this photo, but this little chair has the cutest swirly decoration on its back. Can't wait for my impatiens to peek over the top of the old fern stand and the green plant to spill over the front.

I just love white flowers. Aren't these pretty? 

Thanks for stopping by for a few minutes even if our visit was only "virtual"!

Where is your favorite spot in your house?
