Here are my birthday chairs! They’ve been loving hanging out on my front porch! The color schemes on my old porch furniture comes straight from the most élite and expensive Paris designer. It cost me big bucks! 😉 It takes a lot to pull together old colors and chipped patinas.
I am quite pleased with my porchy furniture things! Thanks to my brother and cousin and a flea market vendor!
One day we will get some wire brushes and paint and a bit of time and update our color scheme.
Do you have favorite outdoor furniture?
Our outdoor stuff has turned out differently than we would’ve visualized at first, but we sure do like it! I wouldn’t mind finding a couple more of the old, metal swings for our backyard. In Kansas, we’ve got to have something heavy that won’t blow away with the wind! I’ve always loved porches and a porch certainly needs to offer somewhere to sit. I’ve always liked hanging porch swings, too. My dad and mom had one when I was growing up and my brother and I logged a lot of hours on it.
Our porch layout turned out in a way that really doesn’t work very well for a hanging swing. At least it doesn’t if you don’t want the side of the house hit by the swing. And what good is a swing if you can’t swing on it? We would swing really high on our porch swing as kids. We would stick a broom through the arms of the swing behind the chain and make a handle bar/seatbelt that we could hang on to. We loved it! We had many adventures and played many games on that old, wooden porch swing.
