I collected a lot of fence wood from curbside when we lived in the Panhandle of Florida. Hurricanes play heck with fencing along with everything else. When we moved back to our home in
Tennessee I loaded that fence wood and all my other junk finds into the moving truck just like it was precious furniture! It's almost all gone now. I made some beach signs with some of it and they turned out great. You can view all the details on my website post.
It's not hard to create an oasis on a front or back porch -
1. round up a few comfy chairs or a lounge, maybe a swing.
2. add a table to hold a glass.
3. pop in a few pillows and a splash of color in an accessory or two.
...and you have your OWN summertime retreat to enjoy!
Once upon a time, I lived in my dream house. And that dream house had a wide front porch that just said 'Summertime'... It was the perfect place to hang a swing, where I could sit and work or just relax. Add in a few patriotic decor details and a refreshing summer beverage, and it was truly my haven, my retreat. I enjoyed that porch in every season, but especially in summer!
#SummerStyle It's time to add a little inexpensive summer fun to your porch or patio! All you need is Mason jars (free with some
spaghetti sauces), a dollar store votive holder, a candle and some shells! Cluster several of them on a wicker tray and add sand and sea shells for an instant summery centerpiece! Get the details and a link for creating the Pottery Barn copy cat wire hangers on my blog.
