My front porch has been looking rather drab. So, I decided it was time to do something about it! I like sitting on the front porch and the back patio but it was missing a sparkle to make sitting out there a bit more fun.
Here is my front door before. I love how red it is. The previous owner painted it that bright red color.
The front porch before.
That little bench was my mothers. I remember it being outside on the patio when I was growing up. I am a bit attached to it which is why I have had it on my porch all these years. But, it is time to let go and switch things up! :-)
I added a cute new rug....
A decal for the door...
...and my yarn wreath from this tutorial over here.
I love succulents so I went to home depot to pick up a few to put in the planters I found for half price at Hobby Lobby!
I have the round table and chairs that go with the bench on the patio in the back yard. I took 2 of the chairs and a little stool that I had and moved them up front and this is what I ended up with.
When that still was not good enough...it was time for spray paint!
Good-bye gold mailbox!
Hello orange mailbox!
Good-bye black chairs and old green stool!
Hello lime green and orange!
I used one of my vintage cloth napkins to make a little table cloth, added a citronella candle and some rosemary.
I have this little hanging plant hanging on the porch too.
I am not quite finished but very close. There are a few small touches that I want to add and when I do I will let you know!
