Front Porch Summer Make-Over

Since I bought my house I have been wanting to update my front porch.There was an old bench, but really only my cat "Hashtag" ever used it! I wanted to create an inviting space where I could sit and have coffee with a friend, or watch the sunrise.

Then one day I was at a rummage sale and I came across this porch light that matched my doorbell- for $1! It inspired me to get the ball rolling...I had my father-in-law re-wire it and install it for me.

Then with my husband's help we moved the drab bench to the back yard. I just recently bought a wicker chair off of Facebook for $20 and it was perfect for the porch. The cute pink heart chair I pulled out of my bathroom.

With a birthday gift card to World Market I picked out this little turquoise table and a colorful paisley cushion for the metal chair. Love that store!

The table I already had (another garage sale grab) found it's place on the side of the porch. And it matched the new table perfectly!...I found these little flower pails from Target for $3 each!

I was a little unsure about the mat- it was a little beat up from being used as a rug in my booth at shows, but once I put it down, I decided I liked the look!

So I finally have a porch I Love and that calls me to sit and enjoy it any time of day!
