The genius who designed our existing carport made it almost impossible to park there without wrecking.
Dents from former owners convinced us to use it as a covered patio instead.
However, I had let the space look tattered since fall.
My mom and I perked it up it with a new coat of paint on the garage sale furniture, fresh cushion fabric from a thrift store, and a couple of spring ferns.
We have a lovely westward wind that blows through the sitting area, keeping it pleasant during even the hottest summer days.
I'm looking forward to rocking the baby on the glider while my preschooler plays nearby.
