I hope you all had a blessed Easter weekend! Ours was filled with Easter egg hunts, yummy food, fun time with my sister, Dana, and her boyfriend and some lovely friends, and most importantly a truly wonderful Easter service. It was such a busy weekend that I didn't finish up the post I had planned for today so instead I thought I would share some nighttime photos of our porch.
With warmer spring and summer nights finally in sight we decided to get the porch ready so we could start eating out there again soon. We are still playing around with the layout out here. I'd like to put a larger table out there (we originally had the table that is now in our kitchen out there but ended up moving it indoors after a few weeks) but I am holding off on making any decisions right now because once we add the larger countertops to our kitchen (which should be installed in about ten days!) there may not be room for that table anymore inside and it might move back out there. If it does still work inside then we will start keeping our eyes out for something that will work better out there. Right now we have a inexpensive Target tablecloth thrown over small metal circular table we bought at Wal-Mart about 7-8 years ago. The table itself is kind of a mess thanks to the fact that I had been using it in our garage to spray paint on top of at our last house for several years. The good news is the tablecloth hides most of that =) .
We got some of these little outdoor lights at Target last week and I think they are a fun little addition.
I will do a lengthier post at some point in the next week or two with some daytime shots of the porch and a source list.
I hope you all have a wonderful week ahead!
