Yesterday I shared what stage our house is at with the build process.
|One of the first things I purchased was the Luciana swing for our front porch. I ordered it from Grandin Road. It was on special plus I had an additional coupon thanx to my pal Susan from Between Naps on The Porch so it was a steal of a deal at less than $200 with shipping! I have always dreamed of having a porch swing and can not wait to hang it up.|
|I also just ordered two of their Nantucket rocking chairs for the front porch after they sent me an additional 30% off all sale email. I love the rockers because they have a distressed feel to them.|
|The closer we get to completion I will start purchasing the exterior lighting. I have picked out Allen + Roth Castine lighting from Lowes. The X design matches the backing of the porch swing as well as the cross buck doors we will have at the back of the house. We will have a cross buck door from the garage and then one for our backdoor. I am just giddy over the thought of those!:) There will be two of these lights on each side of our front door and then one on the front of the garage. There is also a flush mount ceiling fixture in the same line that will be for the breezeway from our garage to the house. I still need to pick out two ceiling fans for the front porch. I have not yet decided if I want them to be just plain fans or if I want them to have lighting as well. If lighting then I will just go with the fans from the same Castine line.|
Wait till you see some of the lighting I have stashed away for the interior of the house!:)
