porch love

I  have had blogitis... obviously  not a word in the dictionary.... but it describes exactly what i have had... not wanting to blog... I have been focusing on getting back into shape, and into my fourth week... I was happy to register 30 miles of biking this week.   To add more pain I painted the front porch and then added some detail with a Martha stencil.  Still have some work to do.., but for now it's a perfect place to relax.




I painted this sweet cabinet and moved it outside... I always struggled finding a place in the house where it would fit, considering it's depth. It works perfect on the porch...


   
Perfect place for the porch cats to lay and a glass of wine to be set...




Our porch cement porch was looking a little dingy...  with a couple coats of   paint it is a new place... have a couple more stencils to add but you get the idea.  We have a huge yard and deck in the back... but this week we have been camped on the front porch.  There is nothing better then the front porch... watching the neighborhood buzz.. the kids playing ball in the front yard...so perfect.

What I would give for a house with a front porch. Love the painted cement and stencils. Here in Arizona it's hard to find a house with a front porch. You would think the builders would keep that in mind because of the heat. Enjoy your day sitting outside.
