About Me

Hello Friends!

I want to start by saying thank you so much for taking the time to swing by!  I am Ashley from Porch Addict and I can’t wait for you to follow along!  

A little bit about myself, I have degrees in both Clinical Massage Therapy and Chiropractic and I spend most of my days treating patients naturally.  I've always had a lifelong love affair with home decor!  Growing up, my mom was a chronic re-arranger and I truly believe she coined the term "Shop Your Home" over 40 years ago!  I guess you could say I get my home decor addiction from her!  My fiancé and I reside in the Chicago suburbs with our Mini Goldendoodle Zoe and his 3 beautiful children when they aren’t with their mama. 

I started my blog to share my love of decorating, DIY projects and how I mix highs with lows in my everyday style.  You can usually find me thrifting, junking, fixing or painting our vintage victorian!  I instantly became a “Porch Addict” after seeing not one but two porches with a bonus storybook swing!  Thanks for joining me here at “Porch Addict!”  I’m glad you decided to swing by!

Our Master Bedroom Revealed!

I'm so excited that I finally get to share our master bedroom reveal with you here! Both our living room and master didn't get much attention when we moved in and I set out to change that in the last year! The bedroom is pretty big and the walls were a very pale gray making the room look even more huge but not in a good way! I wanted to darken up the walls with paint in a #tranquil color so I chose @behrpaint color of the year #inthemoment and I love it! It looks different from day to evening and I love that about the color! I designed the #boardandbatten wall and then had my painter install it to frame out my mirrors!

The bedroom furniture was originally wood and about 4 years ago I chalk painted it gray and white. I liked it at the time but I knew it wouldn't work in this space. I wanted #boldcontrast next to the walls so I chose @benjaminmoore in #simplywhite. I just love how clean and pretty Simply White is! I used their #advancepaint line and I couldn't be happier (again) with its durability. I first primed it with @zinsser #coverstain primer which is always my go-to primer for any paint job that I do. I removed the old hardware which to me looked like huge, ugly sea-shells replacing it with #brasspulls from @worldmarket which I love. They completely transformed the look of the furniture. We did have to drill new holes in the furniture because the old hardware housed two screws. I used spackle and sanded those prior to priming. I'm still searching for the perfect bedding for our room and trying to do the whole #processoverperfection thing! I'm also going to order a rug from @boutiquerugs to place under our bed! By the way, use my code "porchaddict55" to get 55% off + free shipping on your next #boutiquerugs purchase! He hated our bedroom before and now he loves it which for me, that's winning! :)
