Just after Thanksgiving I shared the first photos of our newly finished porch, and we’ve been waiting since then for our new furniture! A couple of weeks ago I showed how the porch has become my “weekend office” and that the dogs like to lounge on the futon, or nap there with their Dad.
Just before Christmas we finally got the rest of our furniture delivered….a lovely side table and a chair with ottoman, both handmade by the Amish. Since my hubby already enjoyed napping on the futon, I was kind of thinking of the new chair as being mine. Apparently I should have had them engrave my name on it, if I wanted to claim it as my own…..we barely got it arranged where we wanted it to start with when this happened:
Maybe I could sit on the ottoman? Nope……
The futon is still a favorite as well (it’s the same futon with a new cover on the mattress to match the chair), a perfect play area….
….as well as a route to someplace else (note the beagle butt to the right).
Luckily for me, they are at least willing to share!
We usually leave our Christmas tree up right through New Year’s, but we were anxious to get the porch arranged the way we wanted it, and here is the final result:
Notice that there is a dog bed on the floor….it remains to be seen if anyone actually uses it!
