Screen Porch - Ready for Summer!

.
It's finally warmed up enough to feel like Spring.  This week we have actually had Summer like temperatures.  It feels great!
.
All of my outdoor furniture is out of the garage and outside.
.
Here's the empty screen porch:
.
.
And my new outdoor rug:
.
.
The rug is the Laney Indoor / Outdoor rug from Ballard.  You can find it right here.
.
And here are a few photos of the porch with all the furniture out:

I'm so happy it's finally warm enough to use the screen porch - it's like adding a whole other room to my house.  I'm headed to the greenhouses this weekend to stock it with plants.

Your porch makes me want to stop over to hang out with a glass of wine! So pretty!

barbara@hodge:podge said...

Jealous, as we are far from enjoying summer temps here. The rain and cool weather won't go away! Normally we are in shorts, not this year!

Emily {Frilly Details} said...

You are so fortunate to have such a great outdoor space! It looks so inviting. Can't wait to see it with all your pretty flowers and plants!

Hi, Ali.
I've been following your blog since last summer - Sandy told me all about it (remember me? I went to Spain with Sandy & Kris). I love your projects, and am about to tackle a roman shade thanks to your instructions.
I LOVE the new rug. I think I need it, but hard to tell what the green is really like on yours & the ballard websites. Are you familiar with the Amy Butler Nigella line - specifically this fabric (or the passion vines in pink)?:

http://www.etsy.com/listing/62308864/starflower-tiles-and-pink-coriander-iris?ref=sr_gallery_6&ga_search_query=amy+butler+nigella&ga_page=3&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_facet=handmade

I made dining room curtains out of it. Do you think the green in the rug will clash?

Anyway, love your blog!
Kim
