A Porch Makeover in Less than a Day

As the days grow longer and the sun gets hotter, the lazy days of summer are almost upon us, which is why I’m so inspired by this front porch makeover by Country Living.

Before the humdrum space was better for collecting dust than sipping drinks.

But after the bright poppy colors and multiple seating options create the perfect place to chill out after a long day.

How did they do it? Just like this!

1-Curtains ($159 each; ballarddesigns.com)

2-Cushion ($79; westelm.com)

3-Pillows (Striped pillow, $29, and floral pillow, $32; potterybarn.com. Red pillow, $49.95; outdoorfabrics.com)

4-Table ($199; wisteria.com)

5-Lanterns Slatted lanterns, $250 for a set of three, and basket-weave lantern, $360 for a set o f two; twoscompany.com for stores)

6-Chair($59; lowes.com for stores)

7-Stools  (Similar abaca stool, $119; crateandbarrel.com)

8-Rug (Similar rug, $89, 8′ x 5′; homedecorators.com)

9-Floor pillow ($126; utilitycanvas.com)

 With nothing more than a Visa in hand and a few hours at the mall, you can have a brand new front porch, too.  Who says you have to spend as much as they did?  If I can wrangle the credit card from my hubby, I know what I’ll be doing this Saturday!
