A fun, bright & spacious screen porch for the Clearview project

Y’all let’s start with the fact that I LOVE a screen porch!!! It can truly be an extension of your home. One free extra room, yes, please!

So, when I began this project, I started with the master bedroom, then we moved to the den and next was the screen porch.

(Side note: I am SO sorry that I don’t have any before pics & definitely even more sorry that I don’t some of the pieces we painted.) 🙁

My client has a very large space. It’s a typical rectangle. When I started there was nothing on it but a grill.

We began by painting the floors Locomotive Black by Martin Senour. I have used this paint color on multiple porches. It’s kinda a Charleston thing.

Next was finding the perfect sofa. We found this one at World Market.

The one we bought is no longer available, but this one is in-stock and on sale!

Then we needed a pair of chairs. We were looking at adirondacks like these.

We actually found a different pair at an auction & painted them with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Pure White.

Then came the rug and this one was just perfect! I loved the colors and the chevron.

Next on my list was to create an outdoor dining space to entertain. So, we found a table and chairs at a thrift store and painted it to give it some love.

We also needed a coffee table and side tables. My client saw my porch and quickly jumped online to Ikea to snag these two items.

Finally, one thing I love on porches are curtains. I have used these Ikea curtains on a few projects.

These curtains & thick & affordable!

I am happy to say she is over-the-moon about her new space! Don’t underestimate the power of painting and experimenting with fun colors like her green table.

Hope y’all enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!

I love helping people successfully find and perfect their dream homes in Charleston. This is why I'm dedicated to home selling, buying, decorating, designing and remodeling.

    It’s beautiful and I love that you did it with such reasonably priced finds! I hope this is a client who is also a friend because I’d love to have that space for some girls nights gatherings!
