Before I redid the dining room, and before it was consistently 90+ degrees outside everyday, I tackled my screened porch to give it a more roomy feel and brighten up the space. It needed paint - floor to ceiling, and new furniture. Here are some before pics...one of the paint chipping and a few right before painting...
The ceiling was painted Atmospheric Blue by Sherwin Williams. I paid $10 for a quart of paint for the ceiling and a quart for the woodwork. I spent $6 for the cement paint.
After painting it was time to accessorize. The old furniture needed to be taken to the dump so I found this set at Bed Bath and Beyond for $299.
I also bought this pair of panels from Big Lots for $15.
I added this fabric from Wal-Mart, which cost me $10.00. I added it to the bottom of the panels and made some cute throw pillows with the leftover fabric.
I love the feel of my freshly painted porch. Now I can sit out here and relax, when it isn't 100 degrees out, of course!
