This porch is accessible from our bedroom and the sitting room. I have been waiting for the perfect chandelier (love chandeliers) to go on this porch, I found it a few weeks ago at The War Eagle Craft Show in Arkansas. Past posts on chandeliers here.
I was immediately drawn to this shabby chic booth by Bianca of Vichella. This is where I found my chandelier. Bianca has an Etsy shop also. She makes the most adorable little girl's dresses.

The chandelier and the comfy cushions on the Adirondack chairs, that my son made in shop class years ago, is perfect for the feel of my shabby chic porch! The trellis with a yellow climbing rose planted with a vine, brings the feel of a cottage garden near by. The rug is from Lowes.
