This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of At Home. All opinions are 100% mine. I’m partial to lions. I find it hard to walk away from just about anything lion decor related. I have good reason for this though. Grunt Labor and I met while we were both teachers. Our school’s mascot was…

Is there anyone else out there that just feels the need to add a little bling everywhere?
A little gold here, a little glitter there?
It just makes everything a little more fun and pretty.
When I made over the porch recently, I realized that these mason jars didn’t quite fit with the fun, colorful vibe going on out there. I wanted to keep them though to use as lanterns for extra lighting at night.
My solution: Bling ‘Em Out.
Now, I have sparkly glitter mason jars.
As you guys know, my new favorite happy place is my screened-in porch. Its colorful, its relaxing, and its the perfect place for a cheap beer or two. Or three. However, I am also digging these gorgeous outdoor living spaces.
As I write this post, I am sitting in the most colorful space in my home.
I dare you to step into the screened-in porch and not be happy.
Double Triple Dog Dare You.

Sweet friends, who put up with way too much craziness from me, welcome to my back porch.
Last week, I showed a little sneak peek of this project when you saw the leopard print table.
I’ve been sitting over here antsy as all get out to show you the whole project.

Well, a couple weeks ago it seemed as if spring was finally arriving here (it was a trick though!). It was sunny, it was nearly 70 degrees and the kid was at preschool (thank heaven).
I certainly did not want to coop myself up in front of this computer all day. I thought it was a good time to spruce-up the porch a bit – seeing as how I have not touched it since its makeover nearly three years ago. And when I did do the makeover, I got pregnant half-way through and failed to touch the lattice on account of being tired all the time.
At least that’s the excuse I’m giving.
So, on that beautiful day a couple weeks ago, I figured out how to stain wood the easy way and gave my lattice a much needed refresh.
