Subtle Porch Changes



                     Hello everyone,

                  We are still enjoying warm sunny clear days
             and I am loving it!

                                                               A few days ago I decided the summer
                                                               look in our porch/entry had to go so I
                                                               made a few subtle changes to give it
                                                               a touch of autumn.
                                                              I added some brown and white transferware
                                                              pieces and ivory linens.
                                                                                 

                                                                        My thrift shop plate rack holds my
                                                                        lacy scarfs.

                                                                             This was my parents old
                                                                             hall stand updated with a
                                                                            couple of coats of paint.
                                                                              I like to display my parasols
                                                                              in it.  
                                                                    Some hydrangeas add some
                                                                    subtle color. So glad to still
                                                                    have warm breezes coming
                                                                    in the open windows..
           My husband and son added the wainscotting
            last winter to the porch. The walls are painted
           Revere Pewter and the wainscotting in white.
                                                                 
                                                    Well, I am finally adding a few fall
                                                                touches around our home and garden~
                                                                hope winter doesn't arrive before I finish!

                                                                               Take care,
                                                                                         Carolyn

I especially love the hall tree. I know it takes courage to paint these old pieces but don't you love the freshness and enjoy it so much more. I came home one night and my husband had started painting the oak buffet we had stripped like 45 years earlier. He looked at me when I came in the door and said "there's no turning back now - I hope you like it". Of course - I did!

In tiny steps, the Autumn enters gently and beautifully in you home , dear Carolyn.

I really like the Revere Pewter paint in this room. The plate hook rack is really interesting to see and so pretty. I love the old hall tree. It looks great in white. I remember ours was that old dark grain stain finish. Wish I had it today.
