Before . and . After {Front Porch}

I was going to wait to show the before and after pics of the enclosed front porch until I found the last piece of furniture (a chair) that will go out there, but I'm picky, and I have no idea when I might find it, so...

...the before...




Notice the "abstract" pattern on the floor in "lovely" colors, accented by lime green and bright yellow on the walls. While it was certainly a unique color combination, we decided that we might go with something slightly different:




(that's our grapevine just outside the window in this last photo! It climbs all of the way up the side of our house!)

You also have to imagine the cozy chair that will eventually live in this space, but I don't think that it's turned out too bad thus far!! You can peek at the Before and After {Bedroom} if you missed the post last week!

UPDATE: Here's the porch with said cozy chair:

Your porch looks beautiful! I love the striped floor. I would spend so much time in this little "outdoor room" (and it looks like the kitties find this to be a happy space as well).

^^ It wasn't plywood, but it was a rough wood with a similar texture.
