Screen Porch Ideas & Makeover

Raymour & Flanigan provided us with the furniture for this awesome screen porch makeover. See source list at the bottom for details.

Screen Porch Makeover with Raymor & Flanigan // The before & after images along with screen porch ideas and makeover tips There are some days when I feel so defeated by this big fixer-upper we bought. I sit around thinking “how will we ever get this home to be what we want it to be?” But then we complete projects like this and it reminds me how much I love seeing the before and after images of all the hard work that we put into making this space our very own. The reality is that I would never be able to buy a home and have it be exactly what I want, we have to build that for ourselves and I love it.

This “screen porch” was a complete disaster when we started. The screens were trashed and falling apart and the rails were hardly staying together. Not to mention the brick that was turned green from all of it’s previous years. I have no idea how we all did it, but we managed to do this makeover in less than 3 weeks. My father is an absolute animal (slash genius) and can build anything in like two seconds flat. He drove down here every day for 2 weeks to help us get this done. My husband has learned so much from him and I love watching them work on our home together!

We decided to make this room half screen/half wall for now. Eventually we may switch to having half windows, but for now we stuck it out with screen (more cost effective). I decided to put in ship lap (the real deal) on the inside because I hope to put it throughout a lot of our home and wanted this to be an extension of that space. This stuff is NOT cheap. I repeat, NOT. However, my dad insisted on using this over building it ourselves – and I always listen to him šŸ˜‰

Here are all of the “Progress” images – taken with my iPhone along the way!

My husband painted the whole thing and had to put on a crazy amount of coats to make sure that you couldn’t see the blue paint through it. We still need to slap on some baseboard, put in the ceiling fan, and a few other things…. but overall, I am SO excited about the way it came out!

Raymour & Flanigan had this amazing set that I saw online so we went over to our local store to try it out and make sure that we liked it. The second we sat on it, we knew it was the right set for us. It’s incredibly comfortable and we added on the platinum protection plan so that if the cushions get dirty (HELLO children) and ruined, we are protected. It is so worth it to get the platinum protection plan because it seriously protects against everything even food and beverage stains (HELLO CHILDREN) šŸ˜‰ If you buy anything from Raymour & Flanigan, make sure that you check out their platinum protection plan!

One of my favorite ideas for this porch was planting a little herb garden. I picked up this awesome planter at Brimfield Flea Market last week and couldn’t wait to create our little herb garden. Eventually I would also love to have a vegetable garden outside as well! Olivia absolutely adores her new porch and is constantly asking “Can we go on my new porch” every morning. Makes the hard work well worth it!

    I love how you transformed this space! Girl Oh how I know how expensive ship lap is to buy. My parents entire house has ship lap. We had to replace some and it’s like $30 a board. It’s hard to find here but thank goodness we have a local supplier. You guys did an amazing job!

    It’s gorgeous! šŸ™‚

    What a beautiful and relaxing space! I totally understand how you feel; we bought a 1960’s fixer upper, and some days I think we will never finish everything we want, but it does feel good to see progress! I love the furniture and rug you selected too!

    It looks beautiful! I love the hanging ferns. All the natural green in the plants is so refreshing in the space!

    Oh my gosh, Lynzy, this is one of the most incredible makeovers I’ve ever seen! And thank you for showing us the nitty gritty progress shots. I always love seeing those! This truly looks like such a wonderful place to relax now!

    I love the way you did the shiplap halfway up, and I wouldn’t change it. In fact, I am showing this to my husband ASAP! This entire makeover is stunning!

    Stopping by from Sunday’s Best. Well done! I love it. I’ve been thinking about doing this with one of my decks for years. Thanks for the inspiration.

    What happens when it rains with just screen? The reason I ask is we have a screened in porch that we paid someone to enclose very similar to yours. But ours started as a raised (12 – 13″) deck. They put in a floor with indoor-outdoor flooring. But the rain blows in and we have water standing on the floor that is causing the flooring to come loose. This was done in May and it’s now July. So disappointing. How do we prevent this from happening to save our floor? We are in Texas, very hot, not a lot of rain, but it’s only taken a few rains to cause the damage. And we can’t get the contractor to do anything. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Hi! Our screen porch looks almost exactly like yours – the old one and I am looking to redo it this month. What type of paint did you use?! I just bought a gallon and the guy recommended gloss which is not going over well. šŸ˜
