Porch Addition Finished!!

So ... here it is. I have to say I am very happy with the final results. The image above is looking across the kitchen into the new space. I am looking for a bigger kitchen table for now this will do.

I found these two small side chairs at my favorite junk shop and had new slipcovers made. (No boys allowed!!). I painted the table and distressed it along with another round one you will see later.

This bench has been kicking around for years waiting for the perfect home. I think I found it!

My neighbor made me the beautiful linen seat covers.

Looking to the front yard ...

I saved a picture of this lampshade years ago hoping to one day be able to make and use one. I really wish I knew where I got it so I could give credit. I still have to insert the bulb and cord but I hung it anyway.

I really splurged but I had to have these sconces ... sorry the picture isn't great.

Again, from my favorite junk shop, the mirror that was gold that I painted white.

And the finishing touch ... I put four of these rose plaques from So Shabby Pink,(love her stuff!!) spaced around, above the windows. The windows are quite low so window treatments of any kind would make the room shrink. I think this worked ... A few tweeks here and there ... I want a little more "stuff" ... and I should be done. Thanks for visiting ...
