As far as furnishing our new porch, we planned on keeping our Lazy Boy Outdoor recliners and moving the green love seat from our living area to the porch. We had discussed a chairside table to go between our recliners but they were either too formal or too out-doorsey. Today I stopped by a new furniture outlet here in town and found exactly what we had been looking for. It has a top to set drinks on, then a shelf to hold our I-pad and Kindle Fire, and then another shelf that we can put a basket to hold incidentals.
Here are a couple of pictures. The shelves have all of the colors I wanted to include on the porch - tan (the color of the recliners) , green (the color of the loveseat), and blue (for the lake).
Over the weekend, I went to American Freight (not my favorite place) and found the sectional that I wanted to put in the living area where the loveseat is now. It's pretty small, but that is exactly what we needed for the area. Randy still needs to go out and find a recliner to replace the little burgundy swivel rocker that he has been sitting in. (This was an inheritance from my mom). We'll bring that home and put it in our bonus room.
I want to wait to see how much extra space we actually have before I decide on side tables for the living area. I think the new little table I found today will give us something to copy style from so it'll flow from the porch to the living room. I'm sure Randy will be able to come up with something!
I'm looking forward to spending some time at our cabin this fall!!
