One Room Challenge ... week 5

Welcome to week 5!!

I am in the process of redecorating our outside screened porch and surrounding deck area and linking up with 83 other bloggers courtesy of Calling It Home!!  If you missed last week ... you can catch up here!!  

Here is my inspiration picture from the amazing Mary McDonald!!  

I didn't get a lot done this week but honestly there isn't a lot left to do.  

Here are some highlights for you ... 

The couch was lacquered and is at the upholsterer.  I will pick it up next Wednesday am!!

Navy and white stripe with solid navy piping!  So excited about this piece!!!

Picked up the rest of the pillows and cushions.  I can't stop staring at them!  It's such a good change and the clean colors make me sooo happy!!!

Hung the mirror, the plates and just waiting for my Pink Pagoda prints to arrive!!! 
So happy with the walls!

Scored this AH-MAZING over the top side board from the fantastic Parker Kennedy Living.  Its so amazing I can't believe its mine.  It looks so good with my lamps and blue and white ... EEK ... you will love next week!

Cleaned and scrubbed and blew off the porch and deck.  And I am sure I will have to do it all again!  The painter came yesterday and the porch is set to be painted TODAY at 10:00 am.  Nothing like squeezing it all in the last minute.  But ... it is the only thing left beside staging it all.  

Here is the master list ...
