Fabulous Farmhouse Tour: On the Back Porch

Welcome to the final post in the Farmhouse Tour Series. Today we're going to relax on the Crosby's pretty back porch...
I, for one, am absolutely in love with this farmhouse table, vintage turquoise chairs and red gingham tablecloth. How wonderful would it be to sit down here every night with the family for dinner?
That's just what the Crosby family does! Mary says they eat out on the back porch most summer nights, instead of the kitchen or dining room.  And who can blame them? What a great spot!
 
And if guests pop over, no problem!
There's extra plates, bowls and napkins right next to the table in the vintage Frigidaire! 
Oh, I am so jealous of this antique turquoise and white beauty!
And if you're thirsty with dinner, this double wash bin not only makes the perfect place for a vintage radio to perch on, it also makes a great place to store ice and cold drinks. Another of Mary's creations. How creative is this!!
After dinner, you can relax in the hot tub toward the west end of the porch. Oh, those turquoise windows... And, yes, they open. I think that is such an awesome idea! More or less breeze, depending on the evening.
Or, if you don't want to soak in the hot tub, maybe just read a nice book in this chippy green chair and put your feet up on that little shabby stool...
Is this just not the perfect porch for relaxing, or what??

How about a nice, lazy swing on this custom made beauty?
Or maybe you prefer this version?
Mary made these awesome swings out of vintage metal chairs. The legs were rotting so she used them in such a creative way. I'm so in awe of her wonderful ideas! 

This trellis is the frame from an antique school desk. How clever!
I sure hope you have enjoyed seeing some of Mary's awesome projects, home decor and antiques this week! I thank you so much for joining me at The Crosby Farm! 
 Bye for now.
See you again next week with some more of our pretty projects!
