house tour #1: porch edition

After I posted the picture of our front porch on Instagram (@charlotteplaw), I had lots of people asking me more about our house. 

Now that we are totally settled and everything is finished in the house that needs to be (OK not the new rocking chairs but I can post that later!), it is time to reveal it to the world!

Friends of ours stayed here last weekend so I made sure the house was super clean, and it was a perfect time to snap some pics!

I'll start with the porch and I'll also let you know that we are getting the house pressure washed and painted starting tomorrow so it won't look as terrible as it does now! #renterproblems


Here's the front view of the house. Unfortunately, there is a big tree right in front of the house so there isn't a good angle to get a picture of the whole house. But, this is about as wide as it gets! We have about ten feet on each side of the house in between our neighbors. Also, picture two white rocking chairs in between the window and front door. They are waiting to be assembled in our garage!


Yikes. Can't wait for the steps to be painted!!


I just love our porch swing! It was such a great find and the lady I bought it from was so nice! I would take a beautiful turquoise swing ($50) than a brand new swing from a nice furniture store. I love bright colors!

I soo love your house, Charlotte! Your beautiful porch reminds me of the scene in the movie “Gone with the Wind” where Rhett overheard Scarlet's sentiments—minus the lovely swing! Haha! ^—^ Anyhow, I could hardly wait to see the pics of your house after it is painted. Keep us posted!
