My Cozy Porch

I wanted to create a space I can come to relax and have my quite time. A mom of two boys who are 5 and 6 years old and a puppy can get pretty hectic and loud in my house. 

Couple years ago, Kevin and I redid our porch. It was wood, but it was not in good shape. Yes, we could have replaced it with wood again, but it would have been more expensive to replace and rots often because of weather wear and water from watering plants. So, we decide to go with Azek Harvest PVC deck boards in the color “Slate Gray”.  Azek is capped polymer deck boards with Alloy Armour Technology contain no wood and feature superior surface protection from stains, mold, and mildew (Lowe’s Description).  It’s nice, I won’t have to worry about sanding, staining and sealing again because it can be costly and time consuming. The project only took a week to be complete.

After the porch flooring was done, I ordered some outdoor couches from Menards. Menards has some cute patio sets; you should definitely check them out if you’re in the market for a new patio set. I know patio sets can be expensive, if you are looking at Menards, they have sales on everything which includes a 11% off rebate. Great way to save some money. 

After

After I got my couches, it was time for the fun part, the details! I ordered some outdoor pillows and a rug from Target. I got flowers and flowerpots from Lowe’s to complete the look.

I love coming out to my porch now. I enjoy a cup of coffee/tea or a glass of wine on my porch and listen to the birds. It’s very peaceful! I love having conversations with my husband, family and friends there. Holidays will be fun to decorate the porch especially for 4th of July, Halloween and Christmas.
