I posted a picture of our newly-cleared front porch a few days ago. That cement slab was so clean and spacious, and it was such a vast improvement over the cluttered mess it was before, that I might have just left it that way. However, Damian had a pretty definite larger vision for the porch, and so I decided to go with his ideas. Here is the finished product, and I'm thrilled!
We're all thrilled.

The two rugs are outdoor-friendly. They are made from recycled pop bottles! They can be swept, vacuumed, or hosed off! I think they are lively and lovely. I added an iron table, a table and chairs set, and some potted plants for each side of the entry way. It really works. Thanks for the excellent vision, Damian!

Whoa. Impressive! Brilliant colors. Love the 2 park benches facing each other, encouraging chatting. Very inviting looking, I must say.

Yeah, I was so pleased to wake up and find the wedding coordinator on our front porch, sitting at the newly assembled table, working on his computer. The porch was inviting enough for him to want to sit there. I like that. No one, to my knowledge, has done that before.
