The strange thing about the porch is that is is only accessible by ONE door, off the dining room (or what they called the dining room, and I'm still using for storage). There is not staircase leading to the outside of the house, like a traditional porch. It does, however, have window into my studio, which could be interesting. hehehe
The window on the right goes into my studio.
The two windows on the left are in the dining room. Neext to it is the only door into the porch. The little window looks into my kitchen.
My friend Angela thinks I should set an amazing table here, and then add all kids of ephemera, art and other goodies, and use it as a kind of show room. I like this idea. Except for one. small. detail. The room is not completely waterproof/weatherproof. We've had one instance where the rain came in in all kinds of weird places- down the siding in two places, running behind the window that leads into the kitchen. The snow blows between the cracks in the windows. Probably relatively easy fixes- just not being down now.

I even bought some heavenly blue chenille pillow covers for the bed, which is still in the house at the moment... Again, the weather thing could be an issue, but I just need to buy a waterproof mattress cover.

Funky Junk Interiors- she's in the middle of a table project too. She's using pallet wood- which I happen to have plenty of. Hmmmmm.
So, what kind of table would you like? And send me some interesting links, if you have any!
