I wasn’t sure what to do with the old front porch, until I realized I should treat the porch like another room:
This is what I started with:
I completely overhauled it! New foundation, latticework, posts, flooring, steps, etc.
I had grand ideas of having a table and chairs, and afternoon tea, but this porch isn’t that big, only a few inches deep. I decided to fill it with plants instead, with a little rocking chair in the corner.
The pretty hedge, hanging plant, and the plant material for the flower box were made by Bill Lankford.
