I have dubbed the screened porch “The Date Porch.” It has not yet had its turn at being fixed up, but the torn screens and broken overhead light add a quirky charm. The unfinished concrete floor and cracked walls add character, and a sort of romantic ambiance fills the air.
This porch sits up high and is on the corner of the house. The breeze is nice and fairly constant. Now that we have chairs, this is my favorite space.
Ikea chairs, spray-painted.
The room glows with candlelight (see reference to broken lights above) and this contributes to the romantic old world charm of it all.
I know “the date porch” needs A LOT of work. I could list it all here, but I don’t want to bore you with the details. In the meantime, I am basking in the candlelight, which hides all flaws, including mine.
A lovely breeze comes through the porch and I think of the potential this space has. With just a hint of crisp Fall Air, I am distracted by my little romantic getaway porch, and for now, the fixing up can wait.
