One Room Challenge - Week Five - Porch

It is week five of the six week One Room Challenge (ORC), and I am almost done. Almost.

If you want to catch up from the beginning go here for....

ORC - Week One
ORC - Week Two
ORC - Week Three
ORC - Week Four

Last week we made a headboard bench and we had some wood left over, and along with another small run to Home Depo, my husband made a cocktail table for the porch. The paint is Glidden, Satin Finish, True Turquoise.
While we had that paint out we also painted the two cafe chairs and table. What a difference a change of color can make.

We also hung the drop cloth drapes. I hoped the wrinkles would fall out, but no such luck, I will need to take them down and iron them. We took standard hooks and put them into the wood and then just hung them with clip-on hooks. I really love them!

I found a throw for the white wicker chair which I am thrilled about. I love the mix of the colors, white, brown and turquoise. And I love the fringe!

I also found a quilt for the bench. I had gone everywhere trying to find a cushion for the bench, but it is fall and going into the Christmas season and I couldn't find anything for outside, so I changed up and started looking for quilts. It is a Simply Shabby Chic by Rachel Ashwell, which I purchased at Target. I love all the subtle colors of this quilt and it is machine washable which was an absolute must. The throw is also machine washable.

Here is a close up of the round pots with the cherubs on them. I adore cherubs. I really wanted to put topiaries in them but I am concerned that there isn't enough natural light and that they won't survive. I went looking for artificial topiaries but they look so fake I can't bring myself to do that. I think some flowers will be nice.
I also found a large oval crochet tablecloth yesterday at High Street Antiques in Plano TX and I am going to attempt to make a pillow out of it for the bench. Wish me luck. Seriously I need all the luck I can get on this project. She fits on my dining room table. This would be so much easier if this tablecloth was damaged.
All I really have left, beside ruining a perfectly good crochet tablecloth is to find accessories to style my porch. Accessories can be critical in bringing the project together and making everything work, but it is also one of the most fun aspects of decorating a room. Until next week! Don't forget to visit all the other participants involved in this ORC, you can find them all right here.

If anyone has ever made a pillow from a crochet tablecloth I would love to hear from you. See you all next week.
