Headboard Bench

I have had this headboard bench since last Friday and this was the only day I had free to play around with it.....I had so much fun...it was a beautiful day here in the Bay Area......
and here it is.....

my front porch looks like Spring........I added some cottage pillows

I added this old window ...I wanted to give my porch a cozy effect.....
I hung it with some chain and put this cute little welcome heart on it.....

spring flowers are very welcome.....







I think I shot this bench from every angle.....
I have a very small front porch but it "WELCOMES" you with open arms...
Hugs,
Mo :-)

Joanne Kennedy said...

How cute! It is so perfect to have sitting on the front porch.

I also love your plant holder. I saw one like it at TJ Maxx or Marshalls but again I let it stay there. Sometimes I don't know what I'm thinking when I'm out shopping!

Hugs,
Joanne

Hi Mo, Your bench is adorable, and the overall look on your porch is so inviting to stay awhile. I would love to spend a day with you. Everything is sooo sweet and cottagey...

Have a Great Day-

Oh, I REALLY want to come live with you!! Your home is just as beautiful and welcoming on the outside as on the inside! Love the bench, the window, the whole thing!
Have a great day!

What an entrance to a beautiful home....perfectly lovely!
Oh and by the way, you asked how difficult the program was for creating my graphics....to me I find them quite a challenge at the moment because I am fairly new at it but where there is a will there is a way.
Took a desktop publishing course 12 years ago and didn't understand a thing and now a month ago my two teenagers who study computers taught me what I know...had to wait till they grew up and helped mom along the way...Get some books at the library like I did and read, read and read some more....play and play and play forever!
Hope this helps!
Good luck Hugs Annabelle

Debi took the words right out of my mouth, I ditto everything she said.
I have an old window like yours hanging from a chain, in my potting shed. And the heart welcome sign I have in my guest bedroom. I found it years ago when I lived in Las Vegas.
It looks beautiful on your porch.
Very welcoming.

Mary said...

Mo, your porch does say welcome with a big hug. It looks perfect. Love the flowers and oh those pillows, so pretty! Our temps have dipped a bit here but we have beautiful sunshine and my daffodils are budding. Tulips are up. Spring has sprung!! Have a wonderful Friday Mo!

Shabby Kim said...

Kris said...

Mo, Can I come and camp out on your porch? It is beautiful and very inviting. I could just curl up on the bench and take a nap.

Have a happy day

DEAR MO,
DITTO TO WHAT EVERY ONE ELSE HAS SAID....DID YOUR HUSBAND MAKE YOUR BENCH OR DID YOU BUY IT.....I THINK MY HUSBAND AND I HAVE THE PIECES FIGURED OUT AND I LOVE THE WAY THE BOTTOM LEGS ARE CUT OUT JUST LIKE YOUR FENCE POSTS...THAT IS A BEAUTIFUL LITTLE DETAIL THAT JUST TIES IT ALL TOGETHER.....
I LOVE YOUR GIRL PLANT STAND HOLDING THE TRAY AND THE BASKET OF FLOWERS. I HAVE ONE THAT HOLDS A HANGING BASKET BUT SHE DOESN'T HAVE A TRAY....YOURS IS TOO CUTE...AND I LOVE THE THREE BASKET PLANT STAND......I CANNOT WAIT TO GET STARTED OUT IN THE YARD....IT IS STILL A LITTLE SOON TO PUT HANGING BASKETS OUT...PEOPLE DO EVERY YEAR AND THEN WE HAVE A MAJOR FREEZE IN APRIL.....
I LOVE THE WINDOW AND IF I CAN FIND THE RIGHT WINDOW I AM GOING TO DO THE SAME THING.
THANK YOU FOR THE INSPIRATION
HUGS

So adorable! I have a headboard bench on my porch as well. I love to sit out there and watch the kids play and the neighbors walk by.

I also love your hanging window. I have one but I haven't hung it yet. Hopefully this year :)

Bo said...

Hi Mo...That is the sweetest little bench & adding the window behind it is the perfect touch...I swear, I think you could decorate an outhouse and make it look beautiful & cozy!! Love this!
;-) Bo

Carolyn said...

Love the bench on your very pretty porch! I saw one of those benches on a trip to Maine and I wanted to buy it but our car was too small.
I have the same tiered plant stand though and I love it too.You did a great job of making your porch very welcoming.

I love the bench and how it looks on your porch. It looks so inviting and pretty. I also love the plant stand and I'm going to look for one like that.

Hi Mo!

Oh I LOVE your darling bench! The whole vignette is beautiful!! I really like the old window hanging over it, very nice look. The tall planter is lovely. You find the most unusual things Mo.

Your home is decorated so beautifully it should be in a magazine!! Please invite me to your next tea, your table looks delightful.

Big hugs,Sherry
