Porch Re-Do

I need to re-decorate my tired porch. Actually since I never decorated it to begin with this is actually not so much a re-do as a do-do. Insert childish laughter.. I need a vacation. Anyways there is something about my porch that just kills me. I don't know what it is. No actually that's a lie, I do know what it is. I hate it, the style, the furniture, the fact that junk is piled up behind the Japanese box trees so that it can't be seen from the street. I dream of a porch like this.








Decorated for the Holidays in special personal ways with details and character.





I need a new project like I need another McFrappe (see below) but I desperately want a change.


The HOT MESS that has earned its own post!

Ignore the Christmas decor. Behind the sea of boxes you can see a porch crying out for attention, demanding that it be used for good instead of evil. Yearning to earn the title "Welcome to my Inviting Home", clamoring for some homeowners yearning for the title of "Porch Drunks"and hell bent on drinking boxed wine. Ok so that's a little far but really glass and cement don't mix so well.

Where do I start? Do I save up for a year and hire someone, do I jump right in and hit up yard sales and thrift stores for furniture? Do I put those box trees on craigslist and offer them up, you pull, you haul for FREE? Where will the snails and cats hide once they are gone? Where will I hide my crap from prying eyes? Why do my boots feel so tight today? Did I grab the right thin socks this morning?

Well be assured what ever I do decide will be 100x better than what is there now. Sorry snails, you have been given your eviction notice.
