For those of you that have been following #theneverendingporchproject on Instagram, this post is a long time coming. Almost a year ago, I started working with Jeff at Great Falls Landscapes on the concept.
We worked for weeks on the plan.. And finally came up with perfection.
There were a lot of changes along the way. And while it took what seems like forever to build, I couldn’t be happier with the end results. It’s funny, before finding GFL, I had initially hired someone else, and ultimately fired him two weeks in due to his lack of creativity. So glad that I found them! Jeff and Lance were amazing to work with and really “went” with my crazy ideas..
We also added a flagstone patio and fire pit, which has earned quite a few miles in s’mores prep!
Adirondak chairs and garden stools… HomeGoods. I spray painted all of the garden stools gold to give them a consistancy.
As you can see, mint and coral are the colors du jour inside the porch… It’s such a happy place!
Aren’t these macarons perfect?!? Love the colors.
This bar table was a refurb from our family beach condo reno. So glad I saved it.
I worked with Manoli Designs on the chandelier. Hannah is fantastic to work with. Heightened attention to detail… Which is perfect for yours truly.
I bought the two head chairs at HDC Home in Charleston. They were great to work with! Painted them mint and recovered the seats with white Sunbrella canvas.
I used a Malm table that doubles as a buffet. It’s great for outdoors!
Now for the other half of the porch… The sitting area!
Pillow sources here.
I had a painting party with the girls after school one afternoon. This piece was my creation. I love this painting… Reminds me of that day! (There are also a few little splatters of paint on one of the Ikea rugs just in case I need more reminding. 😉
The sofa is Ektorp. The coffee table (and basically everything on it) HomeGoods.
Remember these chairs?
And this HomeGoods side table?
Of course, you can never have too many pillows.
We couldn’t be happier with our new outdoor living space. We have officially spent more time in our backyard in the three short months since this project wrapped than the entire ten years we’ve lived here. I have a few small projects to finish out here. I can’t wait to share them!
