My porch has gone through so many different makeovers, but this is where it started.
Two rockers from our old house that needed to be restained and a Big Lots garden stool that needed painting.
Good basics, but boy, not very interesting.
Restaining the chairs to make them nice and fresh was the first step, then painting that garden stool to give it some character was next.
You can see my step by step tutorial on how to paint a garden stool here.
Once the chairs and garden stool were redone, adding a couple of pillows and a fern went a long way to making the porch look inviting.
Since then it has gone through a lot of changes.
I have had some leopard on the porch recently - (I coordinated the leopard with the leopard I used inside) This was my easing into Fall look.
Now that the temps are getting cooler, time to change things up a bit.
gives this space a totally new look.
Since the plants are in bloom with little orange flowers now, I thought orange was a great way to tie the porch in.
Sometimes I like to use the black plaid throw, but there are still a few touches of orange in those pillows.
Just change out the pillows again and it seems fresh and new. Still using a little bit of orange.
Christmas is always a fun time to play on the porch and celebrate the season.
Last Christmas I used the plaid with a bit of red on the porch.
Now, I have a few ideas brewing for this coming Christmas. Are you thinking of the Holidays too?
All it takes are just a few accessories, a couple of pillows and a throw and you can totally change up your porch whether it is big or small.
Just have some fun.
