When we moved into our home three years ago I began a love hate relationship with the front porch. I love that we have one. I hate that it’s enclosed (not as nice to look at from the front), I love that it’s enclosed (really enjoy sitting out there in the rain), I hate the carpet (it’s really ugly), I love that it’s carpeted (the concrete underneath is a mess). Because of this battle between my ears I have had a hard time settling on a décor. I like what I have come up with so far but it’s not perfect yet. Hence the title “Front Porch Makeover #1”…there will definitely be a #2 and I am hoping for your suggestions. So here goes (including links to various projects from the past). Enjoy!
Before & After
Projects and Finds...
3. Thrift store find for $3
4. Old dated lamp turned modern with spay paint
Oh yea...I found this wicker rocker at a church flee market for $25.
Now, for the future porch makeover #2...here are a few inspirational pics.
What about paining the wicker chairs green?
I love the red, white, blue and yellow.
I love the blue on the walls and especially the floor. Painting the floor is an options. Thoughts?
I think the screens are way cool and of course love the colors.
Always attracted to the simplicity of blue and white.
This is probably my favorite front porch. I think my wicker would look great in a natural color and of course I love the red.
Thanks for visiting,
