Romantic Vintage Screen Porch Makeover...

I call it "The screen porch" because when ever we actually use it I have the doors open all three sides to let the breeze flow right through!
We bought this room full of furniture last year, and It was ok for a summer..... But I started thinking about slipcovers right away...
I really wasnt into the orange and brown thing... as This is a summertime room!
Well, this is what happens when I get STARVED for SPRING!!! LOL
First the truck incident... and now this! My Dear hubby took one look at it and said:
" It's a bit frou frou for me... But I only take naps here...so I really dont care.."
I Love him!
Now nothing is permanent, and I didnt buy a thing! Everything just came from shopping around my house, ( and Garage that I am decorating too this month! ) I saw a chair at Marshalls last year that had all different fabrics on it ... it stuck in my head for months while I kicked myself for not buying it! ...So this is my version,...
I love all the colors together, it reminds me of being surrounded by a big Shabby chic quilt! :)
Who knows how long I will keep it till I tone it down, but it is cold and gloomy outside, and it makes me happy! ...
I showed these pictures to a friend who designs fabrics for Kohl's, and she wants them emailed to her for inspiration! How sweet of her was that!
Before:
After! Thanks for visiting my Blog! ... remember to smile!
