I mentioned the other day that I was working like crazy to get ready for an open house that we had on Wednesday. I can't say that the open house was a roaring success. It was cold and miserable that day so not too many folks came out. On a side note...It's the end of May, for Pete's sake! I could go for a little global warming here!!! But I digress...
My favorite part is the curtains. I love how they make it feel more like a room without blocking the view. It's just a set of sheers that I bought at Target a long time ago and a gold panel from Big Lots. I bought it a while back for a couple of bucks just because I liked the fabric and planned to cut it up and use it for another project.
There's a little tip for you. Keep your eyes open for curtain panels when they're on clearance. You can sometimes get them for dirt cheap and it's way cheaper than buying that same amount of fabric off a roll.
Anyway, the curtain panels are hung on one of those really cheapo rods with the return on the ends so they kind of stick out from the window. It's nothing decorative but it was cheap and easy to hang and I can easily take it down if we have a big storm coming.
So back to the tour...
I also borrowed a couple of park benches from my friend and used one of them at the other end of the porch. You walk by this one on your way to the front door.
And I put the other one on the little patio that's at the end of the porch.
I don't know if it will help sell the house but I wish that I had done this 6 years ago! I love sitting out there with my cup of coffee.
And my bloggy friend, Heathahlee at Butterfly Genes, is hosting a cute giveaway on her blog this week. Stop by and tell her where you're from!
