Welcome to the 319th Metamorphosis Monday!
This has been the wackiest week with 75 degree temps on Wednesday, snow on Friday and back up to 70 on Sunday. Has the weather been this up and down where you live, too?
With the warm temps returning yesterday, I spent some time out on the porch cleaning a little and getting it ready for the warm days ahead. After cleaning the dust and grime of winter off the porch hutch, I decided to give it a summer makeover.
Sometimes I hang a large platter above the hutch but this time I just added an oar found in Marshall’s a couple of years ago. I noticed when I stopped by a few days ago, they had some cute ones in again.
Even though I’m at least five-six hours away from the nearest ocean, I still love bringing a little beachy fun to the porch.
The plates are by David Carter Brown and the pattern is called Driftwood.
You may remember seeing them in this tablescape last summer. (Table setting can be viewed in detail here: Nautical Table Setting)
I love finding new ways to use things I already have whenever possible. The blue and green pails have appeared before on the blog. Do they look a little familiar?
I think the first time I used them was for this Easter table setting. (Table setting can be viewed in detail here: An Easter Spring Table Setting)
They were filled with colorful eggs that day.
Today they are filled with shells and starfish.
Do you have a hutch or an area in your home that you like to dress up or makeover for each season?
Looking forward to all the wonderful Before and Afters for this Met Monday!
