I finally did something with mine. It's not much, but it's a nice place to go and relax.

I live on a state highway, though, so privacy isn't the greatest. I've seen front porches with curtains in them...would that look ridiculous on mine?

 That is SO pretty! Makes me wish I had a front porch  =(

So... it's been over a year. Lol. Held off on the porch remodel, but I did score some awesome furniture off of craigslist! :D

Guys!

It's been a long time, but it's finally done (since last summer 😂)! I logged in here for the first time since 2014 and had a notification from this thread, so I thought I'd share the news. Lol

I think that looks great!

What about gauzy white curtains? They would be see through enough for you to see out, but if the highway is far enough from your porch, they would give you the proper privacy you crave.

We just planted tall cedar trees in front of our porch to give us privacy from our neighbours, we're right smack in the city though, so the houses are pretty close together.

Thank you!

Yes! Still thinking about the curtains! I don't have *super* close neighbors, but I do have a nosy old man across the street, and of course the highway traffic.

Trees was another option for us, but I think curtains would be better for sure. Our porch faces the West, so we get a lot of pretty sunsets.

I wouldn't unless I needed privacy. I had an outdoor pergola that came with curtains and we never used them . Although they look pretty.
