We had beautiful weather this weekend. My brother and I grilled a late Mother’s Day dinner for everyone on Saturday night and the kids enjoyed the first weekend of the pool being open. I finished setting up our summer covered porch and hanging our new outdoor curtains. I have wanted outdoor curtains for this space for the past couple years but never made the purchase. This year I decided I would make some but found these online for a fabulous price!
I purchased six 96″ outdoor sheers from Wayfair for $24 each. I got lucky and they were on sale. I made the outdoor curtain rod for under $20. Be sure to checkout our DIY curtain rod and how I made it. The electricians in the world will roll their eyes when they see how I made our rod but it saved me over $200! Because outdoor rods need to be weather resistant and rust proof, they are costly. I love how the grommet top curtains and industrial style rod coordinate together.
I shopped our house for most of the decorative items while adding pink and white annuals that we purchased a couple weeks ago. The rug is from our dining room which is an indoor/outdoor rug from Pottery Barn purchased last year.
I love how the pink and blue coordinate together. Do you see the birds nest in upper corner? Every year, we end up with a nest or two in this porch.
I had all I could do to not eat all of the watermelon while taking these pictures. My son kept asking, are you done taking the pictures!?
I think the addition of the outdoor curtains give our covered porch a more finished look. You can see our summer covered porch last year with no outdoor curtains to see the comparison. I definitely prefer the outdoor curtains as does my mom :).
PS. the watermelon was delicious!
