{ A Summer Patina Porch }

 Hey pals!! Thanks for dropping by the blog daily! I've been a bit off the grid lately, because well, life has been difficult....From our central AC going to our washer on the fritz to dog messes & most importantly my sister & gram having surgeries! We haven't had a lot of time to work on projects inside or out & because of a leak our yard is tore up. It burns a bit because I've put so much work into it but, today I'm sharing a little summer porch look with lots of patina! I didn't expect to do this today in 93 degree heat, but I kind of had too...Come see why below....


The whole thing that started this little refresh was actually two completely different reasons...See that vintage white metal cabinet to the left of the door? Well,  I knew as soon as Mark brought it home that I wanted it right there. It's perfect for dropping groceries, winter supplies & Mark's work boots when I don't want the mudroom smeared with man funk haha!

After I spotted the cabinet I spotted these metal antique patina planters { in our stockpile }... They're from our dear neighbors down the road! The fireplace box I've had for many years is also from them. Ralph, the husband  passed a few months back & his wife gifted them to us. 


This space also needed an overhaul like I mentioned above because, well the birds did a number & it needed a clean up. The black bench unfortunately had to be pitched but I love these vintage metal chairs I picked up at a local barn sale 3 years ago...Random but barn sales are my fav!!! 

I hope you liked this simple freshen up! Even though our backyard is in a state of disarray, at least the fronts fresh with some new goodies like the planters oh & we have a pumpkin patch in the back pasture area....No complaints, well maybe a few ha. 

HAPPY Tuesday!
