Front Porch Appeal
Issue #38 September 2012
Porch News and Ideas for Porch LoversSeptember is when many of us wish to nest again. Back from summer vacations, children back to school and a nip in the evening air, we want to settle in again.
Autumn is one of our favorite seasons, too. How about you? We absolutely love the feeling in the air - crisp leaves, pumpkins and corn stalks aplenty. It is time to think about autumn porch decorations.
Dave and I are currently residing in a small apartment until we can find the home we want, but happily, we have a lovely little porch to enjoy.
We hope that you, too, have a nice outdoor living space to enjoy.
We will be decorating it for autumn this coming week. The garden stores here in Middle TN are just beginning to put out their autumn harvests. So stay tuned for our autumn porch transformation!

What an Amazing Difference Porch Railings MakeBefore: Lynn's 1925 Porch With a Wire Fence Around It
See the not-so-pretty wire fence?
Well, Lynn wasn't very happy with it. So she and her husband added vintage wood porch railings to their porch - over 300 balusters!
You are in for a treat when you see the AFTER PICTURES...

An Ultra Charming Faux Cabin Porch
Isn't This Sweet?We thank our Facebook friend, Dean Jacobs McCall, for sharing her "faux" cabin porch with us.
Dean tell us: "This is my "Faux Cabin Porch" that I designed & had built this Summer. It sits on our little pond in one of my garden areas.
I so enjoy sitting out on it & enjoying nature around us."
Dean continues: "It is a 'stand alone porch' and it sits by a little pond in one of my garden areas. I've always wanted a log cabin and pond - this is probably the closest I will ever get.
I guess you can say I designed it; it was my idea that I explained to our neighbor, who is a "hobby" carpenter. He built it for me in May of this year.
I attached an old door and a screen door to the side to add interest to it.
The back is just straight wood, with 2 4x4 wood braces cemented in the ground to help keep it standing."
