Our Spring Porch



Good Morning! Today I thought I would share some photos of our spring porch. The porch is kind of in limbo right now as we finish up the kitchen and decide if we will put the kitchen table back out on the porch or what layout will work best if we add a second door to the porch. So, even though it's a little bit random out there as far as furniture goes I figured I would still get it looking somewhat put-together seeing how the weather is starting to warm up and we can eat out there again!

    1. Thanks, Ann! They are from Target's Room Essentials brand. They were with the rest of the outdoor lights, although they were label indoor/outdoor. They are called "String Lights - Weather Resistant" and were in a green box.

  8. It is beautiful! Such a relaxing space to sit outside and have dinner with all of the trees and open space behind you. I love how private it is. I just picked up some more outside lights for hubby to put up for me this weekend.

  20. I love the lights on the porch. How did you hang them up? Where did you plug them in? I have an outlet on the outside of the house but I dont want it to look bad with the wire coming down the wall into the outlet.

    1. Thanks! We just used those little thin nails to hang the lights, and then I ran the chord down between the brick and the wood so you can't really see it.
