Outdoor Porch Updates - Lights - Curtains - Doors

It is that time of year again, where everyone is thinking of updating their outdoor space.  Even if you just have a small patio, or just your front door where you enter and exit, a small update can make you smile.

This is our large portal (southwest and all).  It has globe lights, and curtains.  The curtains are just Wallyworld cotton curtains, we got about 4 years out of them, and last year took them down.  I am undecided if I will put them back up or not. 

This is a view of our large portal/porch.  I love the all beige uniform color.  Since it is an old house 1947, it has 2 different back doors.  Instead of replacing them, serious cost, I painted them to match the stucco.  They kind of disappear.  I remember the work in painting them, now about that black door I want.  Do I really want to commit to painting?  Yes, I do!  Now for some warm weather without the 50 mile an hour winds.

Before blue doors.

After tan/beige doors

A fan to blow in the breeze is nice too.
Think candles, chairs, fans, do something for yourself this weekend.  Enjoy.
