And now that we've had a chance to take a deep breath, I wanted to start sharing some of the before and after photos. I thought I'd start with the front porch, because frankly, it was a dumping space for tools throughout most of the project and wasn't photo op worthy! It didn't come together until the very last minute. But it's a charming space. It faces south east, so it gets the morning light - the perfect spot to enjoy a cup of coffee and the newspaper in the morning!
We made quite a few changes in this space. We swapped the front door location with the window location. Of course that changed the flow in the house, but also on the porch. Now the front door can swing against the wall and you see the full porch when you enter the space.

I found this wicker modular loveseat at IKEA, that's the perfect size for the space! With a couple of throw pillows (Crate & Barrel), plants and a small table (IKEA), the porch is ready for its new owners!
Wouldn't you love to start your day in here?
