Front Porch Appeal - Porch News for Porch Lovers
Issue #32 March 2012Welcome to the new format of Front Porch Appeal. After three years, Mary and I thought it was due for a fresh new look. Spring is certainly in the air in Middle Tennessee. How about where you live? Are you making plans for your porch this year?
We know many of you are thinking of screening your porch or adding porch curtains. No matter what, enjoy time on your porch with your family and friends. A porch is very good for the soul!
Mary and I were honored to speak at the Niche Affiliate Marketing Conference (NAMS)in Atlanta GA in February. We had fun sharing our story of creating Front Porch Ideas and More and what it has allowed us to do.
In addition, Mary gave a most inspirational presentation on improving your mindset for success.
What's Inside Our March 2012 Edition
Create a Painted Rug on Your PorchPorch floor paint surely does not need to be boring. We are excited for you to see the painted rug that Linda created for her front porch floor. Linda is the author of a wonderful blog "It All Started With Paint" and she shares her tutorial with us.
Linda transformed her front porch from ho-hum to a most charming head-turner. In addition to her painted rug, Linda shares how she used porch paint and vinyl numbers to pretty up her front porch steps.
Enjoy the pictures here and then read Linda's full porch paint story.

We Enjoyed Porches of Northern California!In February we celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary. (Of course, we were just babies when we were married.)
To celebrate, we visited parts of Northern California - San Francisco, Sausalito and the Monterey Bay area. We saw so many beautiful porches and want to share a few with you. Just gorgeous.
