Front Porch Complete

Remember this post about my front porch plans? Well it turns out the swing idea was not meant to be. It turns out my porch roof is vinyl and not wood which means I can’t exactly drill into it. So on to plan B. I got two wicker rocking chairs from Pier 1 instead and I love them! They are super comfy and I feel like spending hours just rocking in them. 
I had Erin make me a cushion and pillow from this fabric and this fabric
 I love summer!

    So pretty – I love being able to sit outside and enjoy the fresh air. Even better when you have great comfy chairs to relax in.

    Great choice – the chairs and the fabric are so fun and summery for a front porch! We've been working on our curb appeal ever since the weather turned nice, and we're still looking for the perfect chairs to put on our new front porch….

    Loving the combination of patterns with the white wicker. I used to have a large front porch with wicker furniture at our last house, it was the perfect place to have tea parties with my little girl. I'm sure you'll be spending time there with your little man.

    Your porch makeover is amazing! I like the combination of patterns. It is amazing how sometimes just the simplest things can make a big difference.

    I have the same chairs from Pier One but in mocha. Did you buy the base cushions from somewhere and then had someone sew a cover for it? If so would you mind sharing where you bought the cushions from. I am interested in getting some cushion covers made but have looked everywhere to try to find cushions that will fit based on the dimensions that Pier One sells but have had no such luck. Thanks!
