You all know that I have a love for putting curtains on my porch, right? Here is a picture of what I did at our old house. If you want to read the whole post about it, click here.
I decided that I wanted to get started on my back porch at the new house by making a little nook for sitting and sipping tea.
Here is what it looked like when I started. How do you like my hose? We're watering day and night trying to grow grass in the midst of the longest dry spell since early last year.
Those curtains are just canvas drop cloths that you would use for painting. My Wallyworld sells the 6'x9' size for about $7. They're perfect for this use because the fabric is so durable.
I wanted them to be easy to put up and take down in case of bad weather. The ring clips worked great! You can see that my panels were a little too long so I just folded over the top and clipped it there.
Two tie-backs made from scraps of fabric to hold them out of the way. Oh good grief! You'd think I could have bothered to put them on right-side-up. I didn't notice until I saw this picture.
Are you wondering why there are little ribbons attached to each panel?
When I'm feeling the need for some real privacy, I can do this. And they stay closed even in a light breeze.
Do you remember that little stool that I asked you all about when I was moving? I decided to go red. You can read about how the rocker and stool came to be here.
This is definitely my new favorite spot in the house. I may be sitting there having a cup of coffee while you're reading this.
