Yesterday was a wee bit crazy, so here I am today to show you my parent’s screened-in porch! There’s nothing like a screened-in porch…they are “oh so Southern!” One of my readers mentioned how she missed screened-in porches now that she lives in Southern California (native Arkansan). My advice to her was to build one! There is just something about walking through a screen door and hearing that “clap” behind you. Feeling the breeze on a cool day or listening to the birds sing at 6 a.m. as you sip your morning coffee. Mother does just that every morning…
Come on in! The flagstone landing is new this year! It’s fabulous and truly makes one of those “added punch” features! The pyramid topiaries are courtesy of me via Mother and Daddy…read that story HERE. This porch is a bit bigger than their original porch prior to the tornado. Mother designed every detail!
The glider was my great grandmother’s and this is where Mother enjoys her coffee and plays her games on her phone every morning (Words with Friends)! The wicker furniture belonged to my grandmama! Everything survived the tornado minus a lovely chaise lounge and a few dishes!
The pair of shelves on the wall are original to the home that she moved into the porch!
I ADORE the trellis work designed my Mother!
Enjoy the day and happy weekend!
