Happily Ever Before & After Week 26: Screened-In Porch Makeover via It All Started With Paint

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Hey Friends!!

Happy Friday to you all!

I was thinking….

Now that spring is upon us, and so many of us are looking for ways to spruce up our outdoor spaces, that maybe it might be fun to start featuring some outdoor rooms as part of my Happily Ever Before & After series! Would you all like that?

When I began thinking of outdoor spaces that I’ve seen in & around blogland, I immediately thought of Linda from It All Started With Paint. Linda did an incredible transformation of her screened-in porch last spring & I thought it would be a great room to feature to kick off this series of outdoor spaces!

Here is a look at Linda’s porch “Before.”

A pretty space with TONS of potential, but lacking color & personality. Luckily, Linda saw the potential in this porch. She had the eye & the creativity to bring it to life!

Here is a look at Linda’s porch “After.”


I don’t know about you, but I would L-O-V-E to sit on this porch…..maybe to drink my morning coffee, have a romantic dinner with my hubby, or just curl up in one of the chairs with a glass of lemonade & a good book! How about you?! 

We talked about how this space lacked color & personality before, but Linda quickly changed that by adding loads of beautiful fabrics & plants to the room. Between all of the throw pillows, her beautiful tablescape, and the gorgeous flowers she solved the lack of color problem in a jiffy! I also LOVE that she added the white draperies to the corners of the room. They soften the space, add just the right amount drama, and really make this porch feel more like a room!

Be sure to head on over to Linda’s blog to check out even more beautiful pictures of this space! There is lots more to see including some DIY artwork, a little herb garden, & more detailed shots of the tablescape that you won’t want to miss!!
