Back Porch and Moving




I was thinking about repainting the hutch this spring a more neutral color but then we decided to put our house on the market. Because I had a ton of cleaning to do indoors in a very short amount of time (our poor garage and closets were disasters), I ended up just cleaning off the porch and adding some plants and a few of the items from last spring one afternoon right before we left for NH. I figured if we weren't able to sell our house I would still have plenty of time once we got back to paint the hutch and change things up a little. However, we got an offer while we were gone last week so our house is officially under contract! (For those of you who have asked: yes, we are staying in Williamsburg, and no, we don't know where exactly we are moving yet. I suppose we 'd better get moving on that...) Obviously there are still quite a few steps before our closing but we are excited so far! Because of that I will be slowly starting to pack up everything and therefore won't be making any changes out here on this porch. Here it is how it looks right now though:






 I hope you all have a wonderful Wednesday!

  5. We close on our house in NC Monday- so thankful it sold quickly and can't wait to have the $ in the bank (for a few days, at least, until it transfers to the current house!).

  12. This looks so lovely and inviting! I hate to sound like a Debby-downer, but how does everything stay so nice being somewhat exposed to the elements- blowing dirt, rain? Do you find that the furniture holds up in the rain and humidity? Nevertheless, this is such a beautiful and welcoming spot to relax! It looks like the perfect place for a tall glass of iced tea, where the sun always shines!

    1. Thanks, Joanne. For the most part it doesn't get too bad. I do wash the bedding one to two times a year and I wash down the table and chairs when needed. Most of it's been out there for about five years now and I think the chairs and the little coffee table could use a fresh coat of paint but other than that things have held up really well!

  22. i would buy your house! It is so cute!!!

  23. Something tells me that any prospective buyer would be so mesmerized by all your beautiful decor that they wouldn't even notice the house itself! Seriously you could probably have leaky faucets and holes in the ceiling and they wouldn't even see beyond all the lovely design elements. Good luck with the move!
