FAKE SCREEN PORCH INSIDE

My house has a big kitchen that has a back room behind this door (where I do my crafts) when we moved in it was a 3 foot drop off with only a handrail! I always wanted a screen porch, so I hung a big old screen with dotted swiss curtains, and a vintage screen door, my aprons  and the old stove make it look like a separate porch!
Found this 1800s rocker for 12.00 at a yard sale. It was only damaged on the seat, originally bright red. I bought sage colored felt type cloth and yard sale trim used upholstry tacks and a doily, one of the greatest deals I ever found!
Two giant picture windows in my living room. I made a valance with all my vintage hats, painted old fence boards and screwed forks and spoons to hold my tab top curtains about a foot down from the valance.
another view of valances (hats) and fence boards with forks and bent spoons to hold tab tops.
ugly light fixture, embroidery hoop that hankies and pearls hang from, a couple of hidden staples.....
