Perked Up Porch


My porch was in dire need of a perking up.. I hemme and hawed about whether to paint it or just try to use a chemical to clean it.. I'm still daunting with it but since summer is here and I plan to spend some time sitting out there, I'll just perk it up a bit. I started with the two rocker chairs I posted earlier..and the rest was just pulled together with some other items i had in storage an vintage finds.. I think it says "Welcome" with a smile :-)
