Front Porch Decor

After checking online and pounding the pavement, I was THRILLED to find a White Wooden Garden bench for 50% off at World Market. The legs have a modern spin by exaggerating the curvy lines of historic Cape Dutch furniture. Before adding the white canvas, bench and pots, this porch seemed dark and dreary.
The white touches with pops of orange and yellow geometric pillows from Garden Ridge, a jute-durable orange rug, and a vase filled with Gladiolas allowed me to transform our front porch into a usable space for my family. I love simple projects that have a great impact! Next on my list, add a water feature and paint the brick. Any opinions on painted brick?!? What steps have you taken towards improving your curb appeal?!
Stop by and see the rest of the pictures and explore tons of simple decor and DIY projects on my blog It's Overflowing | Simply. Inspired.
I also added candles to the side table...I love that my curb appeal not only looks great, but also has a yummy fragrance, they don't even have to be lit...the heat warms the wax perfectly!
