Addition to the porch
Last year for Mother' day my children purchased a cedar porch swing. We did enjoy it last summer but for some reason some of the slats fell out on the back side so I returned it for Mother's Day this year and they gave me a new one so I am going to try to put this together. Now I ususally do not even think about putting anything together but dh is so busy I thought I would try to help him out so we will see how that goes. It looks like there are a lot of parts and tons of screws and bolts...so here we go.
I have the porch swing almost ready to go but for some reason I have some extra parts left ove. LOL I don't think there were suppose to be anything left so I must have missed a step and I do think maybe the arms do not have all the hardware they are suppose to have...so I had better wait for dh to check out my work before I go any further....oh bother.
I have the porch swing in place and ready for some serious decorating but I have to run to Pier 1 and see what I can find. I would like to put up some lighting, something that looks like spring not Christmas so I will have to be careful to choice something light and airy.
This is the finished project...like the colors but I am not comfortable when I sit on the cushion. It is so fluffy that you just slip right off soooo back to Pier 1 to return the cushions and the pillows and then I might look at Lowes to see if they have anything that might match the color of my house. I am just starting to decorate my porch so if you have any suggestions for the summer let me know!
Thanks for commenting on Britt's garden...Brittney if you have a blog let me know and I will link you to mine.
I am very excited about mu new garden building and I am looking forward to planting shrubs and flowers. Today I was thinking that the work for me begins once the building is up and everything is cleaned up but for now I guess I will just dream of what it might look like once it is actually on my property.
