My apartment-mates are still getting their stuff settled in, but that’s no reason we can’t start the house tour with a place that’s already finished.
So without further ado, the front porch!
Last year that black chair lived on our back porch, but because we have a bigger porch this year, and because my roommate often makes phone calls outside, I thought that moving it to the front would look nice and be more functional. I’m tempted to paint it a bright color to go with the plant stand, but for now it’s black.
The flower pots are still empty. And I may leave them that way. They look cute as is and if I don’t plant anything, then I can’t kill anything. So we’ll see.And, a sneak peek of what’s on the other side of the door:
I’m a big Friends fan and so when I found a three dollar frame at a craft store, I nabbed it. In Friends, Monica has a frame around the peep hole on her door, and I thought replicating something similar would be cute.
For simplicity’s sake, I just used some paint I already had lying around. I neglected to realize that I didn’t have any paint brushes. Not to be defeated (and too lazy to go back to the store to buy some), I used rolled up tissues. It worked fine for this project (I needed four tissues), but I wouldn’t recommend it for painting anything bigger than this frame.
And voila! Apartment-mate K made a point to say she thought it looked really cute, and she hasn’t even seen Friends, so this seems like a simple project that could brighten anyone’s home.
