Summer nights on the front porch

One of the things that I fell in love with about our house was the front porch.  In our neighbourhood the porch is almost as important as the backyard.  As I walk home from the subway each day there are people outside reading, chatting with their neighbours, having a beer, watching their kids, the list goes on…

Now that the weather is nice we’ve started to figure out what we want to do with our front porch.  The first thing we did was to add some flower baskets to the railing (see the header of the blog to see what this looks like) and second was to add some seating so we could sit and enjoy a glass of wine after work or read on the weekends.  Chairs and cushions are both from Pier 1.

The next step is to figure out a table where I can put my wine glass while reading!!  I picked up an old tea crate from 1940’s that I think will be perfect for this – stay tuned for a before and after in the next few weeks!

For now, here are some photos of where we’re at so far…

    Thanks Lauren – having a great place to spend time outside makes a huge difference! I’ll keep you posted on the finishing touches for the porch over the next few weeks!
