Making Some Changes

Since last weekend dawned cold and foggy, we thought we would begin working on our front porch. Over the last few years it has gone from a thing of beauty to a catch all for beach chairs, BBQ equipment, tools, etc. It is NOT a thing of peace AT ALL! Here are a few BEFORE pictures to show you just what I'm talking about. Brace yourselves....it's not pretty.

This was after we moved a few things around.

Man, how do we live like this. It does NOTHING for serenity.

We are "dealing" with the overflow by selling, donating and throwing away the junk. Yahoo!!

After getting all the stuff off the deck we swept, washed, and de-bugged the area so it would be all fresh and ready for something new.

Then, about a week ago, I noticed these sweet rocking chairs for sale at our local WalMart.


They were $75 at the time. I mulled it over for another week and when we went back, they were $65! For that price, I had to have them. We bought 2 plus a little table. (I'm ready to go get a few more!) Of course they came ready to put together and I had just the right person in mind for the job.

He has put together so much stuff over the years, he doesn't even need to use the "stinkin' directions!"

One chair down and now the table...."This goes where??"

Looky, he did it in no time flat and they look so inviting and relaxing! That's a little chess/checker set on the table. Inviting.....

It looks so much better after the clean up. Thanks honey!
