Once I find a good source for something, I am pretty much a repeat customer. So, I was very happy to find some outdoor fabric when I wanted to spiff up our screened in porch. I already had cushions I liked which is Sunbrella in cocoa but I needed new accent pillows to coordinate. Actually the pillows I had before were nasty I was not about to embarrass myself with “before” pictures. Trust me on that one!!
I found some outdoor fabric I liked at Fabric Guru, ordered a sample and was thrilled when the sample came and they matched! They matched so good it looked as if they were meant to be coordinating fabrics.
I used cream colored burlap on the tables – and a shutter I had in the garage
I love to read…………and our porch is a perfect little hide away!!
This iron chandelier is from our pergola we had in Texas. It is meant to have candles for lighting purposes but honestly in the heat of the summer they just melt – and it is a big mess. I learned that lesson the hard way.
I found these lamps at an estate sale a while back ……………. they were avocado, gold and dark brown. They were anything but pretty! And the lamp shades were as tall as the lamp itself!! I will let you know in my next blog how I finished them.
My resources I used on the porch:
- Our furniture and cushions is what we had when we lived in Texas
- The end tables are those kits with the screw-in legs meant for skirted tables
- Fabric for the cream & taupe pillows is from fabricguru.com. The name of it is John Wolf Basalto Solarium in Jute. $8.95 a yard! ( I actually saw it in another fabric store for 28.95 a yard. Score!
- The Blue toile is also from fabricguru.com and the name of it is Robert Allen Lake Paradise in Spa. Also 8.95 an yard.
Thanks for visiting!! Hope you come visit again soon!
