From Simple Screened Porch to Entertaining Oasis *Cheap

$100
6 Hours
Easy

For about $50 I turned our "nice" screened porch into and outdoor cozy, homey space that beckons us all to kick our shoes off and curl up on the sofa for a evening movie, afternoon chat with a pal and even a comfy napping nook, complete with light down comforters and pure white linens. Perfect for those overnight guests or myself.

    I love your screen porch room. It's exactly the idea I've been looking for. Thanks for creating a beautiful place. I know you enjoy it. I hope that when I use your ideas it'll look just as good Thanks

      Thank you Anna. The dropclothes are easily attached to the rod with drapery clips.


      Best,
      Connie :)

    That room looks very inviting! Makes me want to run out and buy drop cloths and string lights for my porch. Thank You.

    What a great idea and looks so comfy and inviting! I imagine it's nice and cool when there's a breeze on the wind too! I'd love to be able to do this with my upper deck. It would make the perfect place to do it except I'd never get my husband to let me completely enclose it! We have wildlife that comes up on our deck at night and early mornings so my deck would have to be completely closed to keep them out. Oh well maybe someday and in the meantime I'm keeping your pretty porch in my favorites list just in case I do talk him into doing ours!  Thanks for the inspiration and for sharing with the rest of us.
