Nesting, but maybe in the wrong place!

So I've slacked a little bit with the blog. I hope none of you are worried about me - probably knew I was away! LOL! All is well - approaching the 37th of week of pregnancy so I'm tired and big and just slacking in general. Actually that's not true... I think I've been nesting; not so much for the baby but wanting the house in order.

On Sunday, I got a wild hair that I HAD to decorate our backyard, screened-in porch before baby. It basically was a lost, grungy hole attached to the back.

A few weeks ago, we went to World Market for a living room rug to make our wood floors softer for laying down "Ducky", and it had a ton of cool outdoor stuff. When we moved into our house last summer, my mother-in-law had given us white, wicker chairs that needed a fresh coat of paint (especially after we let them sit outside all year long) and some new cushions. World Market had the cutest cushions that fit and I thought might work. They then inspired me to spray paint the chairs a sage green to match a side table I also purchased at the retailer, plus an outdoor rug with orange stripes.

The chairs still need a little more paint at the bottom, but I'm excited with how it's turning out so far. I'd like to stain the cement as well (probably after baby), but hubby is saying it's harder than I realize. Must research. But for now, at least we have a little haven outside. Looks like an ideal yoga oasis as well!

Hardy har-har Clint! Spray paint is my new best friend. :)

Thanks Maria for your props - I was pretty proud of myself but sometimes am not sure of my own design skills.

That is VERY cool! Looks like a room straight off of HGTV!

Ah, you're to kind DGG, but I'll take it. B acted like the photo made it look REALLY good, as if it truly doesn't look that good in real life... hmpf! ;) I think he still thinks it's a good start. We do need to figure out what do with the floor though - I'm wondering if painting it would be easier than staining. I need to do some research!
