I also made some pretty big changes on the front porch. The long antique black Windsor bench was messing up my inspiration mojo, so that had to go, and with it went much of the other items on the porch. As you can see, my painted Duncan Phyfe sofa now has a place of high honor. I'm just waiting for the weather to warm up to sit out there on it and watch the sun set whilst sipping a glass of white wine. There's no heat on the front porch, even though it's fully insulated and enclosed. When we replace the hideous rug with hardwood floors I'll convince the husband to put a couple baseboard electrics out there. In the mean time I must admire it from afar in the winter months.
