coffered-ceiling'>Coffered Ceiling - Is your coffered ceiling made of wood and painted or is it prefabricated plastic? If it is wood, what type of wood did you use for the coffered ceiling, and how is your ceiling finished - Soffit or some other material.

Thank you.

Was the porch swing made by you or did you purchase it? If so, can you tell me where it was purchased from?

I can imagine spending lots of lazy afternoons on this porch swing...
Between Naps on the Porch added this to 12 Ways to Spoil Mom This Mother's Day
Does she enjoy spending time out on the porch? A porch swing would be a wonderful Mother's Day gift. Don't forget to make it really comfy with a nice, plush seat cushion and plenty of soft pillows.
Kathryn added this to Magnificent Porch Swings!
I personally have never seen a porch swing this large in person but love how it looks! What a cozy place to settle in for the day with a book or a glass of wine!
Becky Harris added this to 12 Ways to Prep the Porch for Summer
Prep your porch swing. A swing is one of the most enjoyable elements you can add to a porch. If you already have one, give it a good wipedown and clean your upholstery. You may want some fresh throw pillows to switch up the look and make it more inviting.
Be inspired by historical properties. "Our inspiration was the Plum Orchard Mansion on Cumberland Island, Georgia," says Jane Frederick of Frederick + Frederick Architects. "They have huge swinging porch beds that are the perfect spot for napping on a hot, lazy summer afternoon."
Becky Harris added this to 10 Elements of a Porch Paradise
A porch swing. I lied. There is one piece of porch furniture that screams porch even louder than the aforementioned rocker. It's the porch swing. Just make sure you know what you're doing or hire someone who does to hang it safely.
