Spring Is Officially Here!

March is the official month of spring and for many it couldn't come too soon. Although many of our readers are still experiencing winter's wrath everyone can still enjoy decorating their porch or making plans to do so.

We are anxious for spring and already lining up projects anticipating the more enjoyable weather that lies ahead. Whether you just came in from shoveling snow or changing from golf shoes to tennies, we'd thought we'd share a few ideas and pictures with you.

Wooden Screen Doors

There's nothing quite like the look and sound of a wooden screen door. If you are in the market for one, be sure to check out Vintage Woodworks.

They have beautiful solid wood hand-crafted screen doors and they are having a sale on their storm and screen doors through March 24.

Sliding Shutters And Shade Ideas

Here's a novel idea from The Porch Company. To solve an issue with wind and sun on a customer's porch, the innovative folks at The Porch Company installed these eye-catching shutters so they can be moved to block the wind and/or filter sunlight.

Rocking Chair Porch

If you don't already, now's a great time to acquire a rocking chair (or chairs) for your porch. What better way to enjoy the outdoors that sitting back in a rocker to catch a spring breeze and watch the flowers grow.
