Adding a little something to the porch!

As I've said before our home is a new home without a yard but we are working on changing that. We've been working hard digging out rock walls so that we can add some nice dirt back in and we also was able to have a guy come and tench the front and back for the sprinklers. Hubby thought that he would be able to get most of them done over the last few day but no it snowed and is still snowing. Utah it has such crazy weather here!

But I've been working on making the front porch look like another room of the house. I found this great bakers rack on line for only $20.00 and the lady just lived 30 minutes away! It was green but she had painted it black so I think I shall repaint it the same color. I have found a few things around the house to put on it but I'm always looking for more. I also purchased some great chairs but I will not reveal them tell it stops snowing.
Then you won't believe what I found! Our city had a clean up day and the dumpster was put in front of the lot next to us. Someone put the same bakers rack on the ground next to the dumpster so yes this one was FREE! I'm thinking of painting this one a plum color so its off to look for paint!
Have a beautiful day and I hope its not snowing where you live!


  1. I can't wait to see this all come together. I am really for spring too!

  2. Good finds and they will look great when you finish them. Sorry to hear about the weather.
    Hugs Bec

  3. I cant believe your still getting snow. WOW all we're getting is a ton of rain.
    Love the bakers rack. And what a find.

  4. What a great idea... sorry about your snow!

  5. What a find! I know it's hard work to start your yard from scratch, but I have to say that trying to undo and redo someone else's landscaping gone wild feels like a losing battle. :)

  6. that's a great shelf Julie. Plum will be pretty!
    Have a good Sunday

  7. Free! That's so fabulous! I can't believe you're still getting snow!!! I have the AC on it's so hot and muggy.


  8. I can't believe you found another baker's rack exactly the same. What great luck!

    Can't wait to see them finished.

    Hugs, Gretchen
