Summer Porch Makeover

New porch floor paint became the starting point for fresh, new paint finishes & outdoor fabrics on this older wrap around porch.
Dated dark brown railing and floors were showing their age on our porch.
We painted the porch floor a gray brown and all railing white. Chairs and a bench got an update in a soft aqua color, and bright pink ivy geraniums give it a pop of color.
A DIY Driftwood product helped this previously unpainted table blend in with the new color scheme.
Copper finishes and orbs added to salmon geraniums gave some contrast to the gray brown paint colors.
Neutral seat cushions and soft aqua outdoor fabric pillows are practically maintenance free!
A crusty old pot and giant clamshell hold easy, carefree succulents.

    The patio was painted in the blazing hot California sun last Saturday. Sage green and adobe to make the orange umbrella pop out. It looks good, my son is pleased with the finished appearance.

    That's great, Barbara! I'm glad your son was pleased with the results. :)

      @Melanie Robinson Thanks Melanie. It gets pretty hot in GA, doesn't it? My daughter lived there for a few years.
