Simply Outdoors Shorewood

We bought this Simply Outdoors Shorewood 4 Pc. White Wicker Coastal Set after we got our income tax return.  This is the only  purchase we made from  that return, we used the rest  to pay off one of our credit card with interest.  We got it on sale when Sears  had their Spring sale.

Our porch wasn't wide enough so we have to put it  long ways.  The table top has a tempered glass and required a little assembly so the kids help  out Dad to put it together.  It's nice to have a  furniture  outside because  we can really enjoy our newly built front porch and enjoy the warm weather.
 I think I would like to put a carpet on the  porch floor but that would be a next project to think about.
It's funny, hubby is talking me into   having a sun porch built at the back.  Right now, we have a  skinny  back porch out there and  he wants to widen the space by  removing the existing porch and replace it with an enclosed  sun porch but much bigger.  I told him that we can't do it this year since we still have to pay off  the rest of the loan we made last year.  We spent almost $22,000 for the   building of the front  porch and we still have  like seven grand left to pay.  Our goal is to have it paid by the end of this year.   The good thing is, we  split this amount and transferred it to a 0% interest  offer that we got so we are not paying any interest.

My husband is very good in envisioning  projects  but my  responsibility is to make sure that we have   the money we need before we start the project.  Too much debt stresses me out.  So let us see if  we can do it in the next years to come, I hope!

It's gorgeous! I wish I had a nice sun porch either at the front or the back. I'd like the front to watch the neighbours walk by and be able to have a chat.

the current porch looks fine with me, if you guys recently spent 22grand on it, why waste it by demolishing and replacing it with something new, just a thought :-) i love the white furniture you purchased. thanks for your recent visit at gardening site

Hi Jazevox, the porch being featured here is our front porch. We are talking about the back porch of our house. Sorry or the confusion!
