Screened Inn

I LOVE outdoor spaces and in the south they are truly a must! It's really nice to have a place you can enjoy the weather without bugs and prolonged exposure (no sunscreen or repellent required). One of the things we liked about our floor plan was the option to have an extended patio and/or screened porch. We opted for the extended patio and Ray screened it himself shortly after we moved in (yes, he's SUPER handy)! It took us quiet some time to put together a plan for the space but....
we managed to take it from this sad empty space to this comfy space in a few weekends.
I'm still looking for a practical indoor/outdoor rug and have a shelf to hang on one open wall but for the most part, it is finished and we are really excited. The plants are all herbs we can use for cooking and they give the space a great smell. The buffet is full of matches, candles, casserole holders, trivets and all kinds entertaining pieces we can easily access when entertaining. The lamp is from this post--I found a space for it and it fits in nicely. I just spray painted it, added some ric-rac to the shade and a new light bulb. Now, all we need to do is host a party--football anyone? Pin It
