Hope you had a fantastic Easter! We had wonderful weather and a very relaxing day.
On Friday and Saturday I worked on transforming our Front Porch. It was in bad shape and desperately needed some help.
Your front porch or entry is the first place that great your guests and should look warm and welcoming...
OK, Don't judge...
My front porch was definitely not very welcoming...The evergreen shrub in the large white planter had seen better days. Looks like it hadn't been watered in months!
Have you ever been there?
The seating area wasn't any better; the bench cushion was faded, and the bronze paint was showing some wear. This is a photo of when the seating area looked good. It was too embarrassing to show you how it looked a few days ago.
Here's how the front door pretty much looked like for a couple of years. It was definitely time for a little change!
Spray paint is the first thing I go to when something needs changing up.
Here are the first two
victims items to undergo a transformation with some help from a little spray paint.
Here's how the front door looks now:
The large white container is now filled with Impatiens, Creeping Jenny and Day lilies. I couldn't resist buying the yellow Gerbera Daisies. Two gray pots were found at a recent stop at HomeGoods.
A large fern sits in the tall ceramic pot which was painted black. Rustoleum's Fern Green gloss paint was used to cover a small terra cotta pot that was previously red.
Now, for the seating area...
The new floral cushion was found at HomeGoods and the pillow is covered with some fabric that was purchased awhile back. I first painted the little table black, but then decided to paint it fern green and the bench black. So much better!
Much more welcoming, don't you think?
