My Shabby Chic Porch is being featured at Southern Guide To Life

I was delighted when the editor Shannon from Southern Guide To Life contacted me

to let me know she had chosen my Shabby Chic Porch to be featured on her website.
Shabby Chic Porch
My Shabby Chic Porch was part of a 6 week One Room Challenge with Linda from Calling It Home.

The challenge was to transform a space in a six week time frame.

You can see Week One to see how it all began, and what I started with,

which wasn’t much.
Porch before picture
And then Week Two where I gathered some inspiration for my porch.

Week Three I share with you how a  discarded wicker chair went from trash to treasure.
Wicker Chair Redo
Week Four I show you how I transformed a headboard into a bench, and so can you.
Heardboard refurbished as a bench
And on Week Five so many things came together and with a little paint these chairs went from drab to fab!

My husband also made a coffee table and we painted it turquoise.

And then for the final reveal

we have Week Six where it all came together. Porch Final Reveal
Please go over to the Southern Guide To Life and show her some love for featuring my Shabby Chic Porch.

She also has a great website where you will want to spend some time and look around.

If you have any questions about the porch transformation I would be happy to answer them.
