The porch revamp continues. I have working on my porch for a few weeks now, and although I am not finished, I wanted to give you an update on where I am.

You see, I have been in love with the porch on Between Naps on the Porch for some time. It is a gorgeous porch filled with lamps and ferns and lots of comfy furniture. I was limited on what I could do because our porch although covered is open at both ends and becomes a wind tunnel during storms. The wind can be quite fierce back here and I am amazed at the damage the wind can do. One time, the wind took one of our Adirondack rockers and threw it off of the porch. I emerged after the storm that night only to find that it was missing. I looked and looked for it, knowing that no one had been there to steal it. The next morning, I found it broken to bits about 20 feet from the porch.
So I can’t have too much out here because of the wind, the rain, and Mr. Mouse, who loves to chew on my fabric, blogged about here. Now that I have made all of my excuses and toned down your expectations significantly, I will show you what I have done.

Notice the column shown below? That is actually from our city house. We had the old wood columns replaced years ago, and I kept one of those columns. Glad I saved it. I think it needs a big Boston fern on top.

The ottoman below is from Aidan Gray. The boots shown are my everyday ranch boots. I have some dress Lucchese boots that I wanted for this photo, but in the end I decided the scuffed up boots would fit in just fine with my Texas French theme.
