In the heat of the summer day, we spend time on the front porch. We welcome neighbors and friends and sit around and talk. I’ve tried to make the porch an enjoyable place to visit with young and old alike. This year I added a antiques bench on one end of the porch and a game board on the other end with plenty of seating in between.
First I want to show one of my new chairs that I added to the decor and fun!
An old blue stool and a tractor seat = this:
Then I added a game corner for the porch. I took a vinegar barrel and added a checker board for all too enjoy! A couple of tall stools on both sides makes for some friendly competition for old and young alike. Right now the checkboard clother is draped over the barrel but hubby is making me a flat service to fit the checkerboard and the fun begins.
I can’t wait to challenge my granddaughter to game of checkers or Life on the Farm game!
Life on the Farm is much like Monopoly but based to farm life instead of city life!
And the last of the porch makeover is this assortment of antique tools we’ve found on the farm which we’ll add to as time goes on!
Wouldn’t you love to come visit on the porch for awhile?!?!?!
