Back Porch Friends
From Seasoned Porch LoversBack porch friends are the best and we have several wonderful back porches to share with you!
Back porches can be a bit more private than front porches because they are situated on the back away from the street.
They can be a place where friends and family gather for special meals, barbecues, napping and even watching a football game or movie on a nice big screen.
We think you will enjoy each of these back porches shared with us from several special readers!
Cindy's Welcoming Back Porch
Wouldn't you love this kind of back porch? It's like having an extra room on your home. So comfortable and roomy with beautiful furnishings. We love her "Welcome to the Porch" sign. Cindy's porch measures 12 feet wide by 19 feet long. Nice and spacious!
From another angle. Lovely! Warm and inviting.
Another view of Cindy's porch. We like how comfortable it looks with lots of homey furnishings, soft pillows and a lovely patterned area rug.
Such a nice place to enjoy the game or a movie. A perfect oasis for relaxing. Cindy has her porch beautifully decorated for autumn.
A close-up of Cindy's fireplace decorated with pumpkins and mums and candles and potions - and a roaring fire for chilly evenings. Cindy's fireplace is double-sided and goes into the family room. How nice is that!
So beautifully decorated! We are most appreciative that Cindy shared her porch with us. We'd love being back porch friends with Cindy!
How Pam Jazzes Her Back Porch in an Instant
Photo courtesy of Pam Brannon SimmonsOur friend, Pam, knows how to get her porch ready in a flash when guests are about to show up.
Her neighbors were coming over for Bunco and she hadn't yet spruced up her porch for spring. So she went to her favorite mom and pop store and bought $20 hanging baskets and a fern - and created an instant back porch full of flora. Additionally she had a few plants like Japanese maple that stick around year after year.
She has purchased other flowers but hasn't assembled her potting soil and such yet. But we know she will - and then it will be even more of a little paradise. Who wants to be back porch friends with Pam?
Nancy Loves Her Back Porch

Photo courtesy of Nancy CarterDo you suppose the back screen door squeaks a bit when it's opened and shut? Now that would be perfect.
We would love to be back porch friends with Nancy and really appreciate her sharing her photos with us.
Yvonne's Log Home - Front and Back Porches
We are so pleased that Yvonne shared her log home back porch with us. Can you just imagine day dreaming in that hammock? I know I could spend a day on her porch and have one of the most relaxing days ever.
We love her dreamy log cabin porch and it's beautifully decorated for autumn. Look at that vintage wagon on the far end of her porch and how she filled it with autumn bounty. Lovely!
Yvonne dressed her front door for autumn. What a delightful way to greet family and friends.
Want to see how Yvonne decorated her log porch for Christmas? It's beautiful - we promise! Thank you, Yvonne!
Dawn's Colorful and Cozy Back Porch

Amy's Serene Back Porch
Amy's lovely back porch 2017We are so honored that Amy gave us a newer photo of her back porch and - oh my! It's so lovely and serene! Look at those beautiful vintage metal chairs (which Amy's company restores).
Read on please to learn more about Amy and the love she has for her back porch.
Amy's relaxing back porchAmy: "Our porches are integral living spaces for us and our friends and family, day and night. We often just leave the door open to facilitate going in and out.
"My husband and I go out on our porch to catch up with each other at the end of the day. It provides peace and quiet and a connection with nature that is very calming in our lives.
We also often have meals at our outdoor table while enjoying the view of the marsh and our vintage porch furniture."
Special spot for enjoying breakfast on the back porchAmy: "We knew we needed a house with a nice porch because I preach porch living and use my porches for photography of my restored vintage furniture for MulberryStreetOnline, but we had no idea what a difference it would make in our lives.
We feel so fortunate to see the sunset every evening, to feel the breeze from the marsh and the river and to witness the beautiful parade Mother Nature provides each and every day.
Vintage metal chairs lovingly restored by Mulberry Street OnlineAmy: "Of course, I have my restored vintage lawn furniture on our porches. We love it so much and use it every day."
We spy those twin aqua vintage metal chairs. Ooooh!
Amy's Tips on Back Porch DecoratingAmy: "I have stayed with a color palette of all the blues and greens that I love. I never hesitate to mix just about any hues of blue and green.
"The various shades remind me of the water. I choose my plants and outdoor rugs to complement the blues. I usually look for salmons, yellows and oranges, except for my red hibiscus which I just can't resist."
Somehow, by using all the things I love, everything just comes together to create a porch we love and enjoy."
Back Porch Friends and Neighbors
Another view of Amy's table and chairs - we bet many serene moments are spent here.
Amy says, "Time on my porch, my glider, my morning coffee, my cats, the serenity of the marsh... I'd like to share it with every one of you."
