Upstairs Porch Refinished, Re-furnished Too!

 The upstairs porch off the master bedroom was re-stained, by moi, too.


 It gets morning sun, and afternoon and evening shade.   Nice timing!


 Feels like being in a treehouse, up here!


 Got a little whimsy going on in this corner.


Looking down into my freshly mowed (by me!) back yard.  Tiny, and yet the right size for us!
I've since started a rock wall around the new bed in the upper left corner of the photo.  Found a source for free rocks, and I've a new pastime!

Hope your weekend is beautiful.......

Oh my! We've been doing the same thing. Makeover on the screened porch. So much work, but so worth it. Love your update, and your yard is so nice!

Your lawn is so nice and flat! So that's what you're doing with the rocks! Will you document your progress?

I would love something like that. Our master BR is upstairs, and I think this would be so enchanting.

Love your new picture for the blog. Hydrangeas are my favorite. I've been wanting to plant some around here for awhile. Enjoy the summer, it's my favorite time too.
