Above is what my porch looks like currently, I found this lovely Wicker/Rattan Chair for FREE! And the white outdoor furniture was a gift from Nate for Christmas. He bought them from Freedom but sadly are discontinued but you can find similar here. As far as plant life goes, I do have an aloe vera plant hiding in the shadows by my front door that likes to flirt with death from time to time.
I have my heart set on getting some durable turkish pillows for my white solar style chairs and a small plant for my little stool. This is where I like to sip my coffee while I read my bible in the mornings. I am also on the hunt for some large succulents or maybe a cactus and big beautiful pots for one corner of the deck. I have also been envisioning on the far wooden slat style wall by the rattan chair a hanging herb garden but I don't want to front door to be crowded. I have moved the little bit of furniture I have a few times and can't seem to settle on a spot yet... Astetically they look better in one spot but then you're facing the house and not the yard, SO not ideal! Hopefully once I get some plants everything will find it's permanent home.
