It’s time for a change on the front porch.
As you know, I like to change it up with every season or special holiday.
Last summer, I had it looking like this………..
If you’d like to see more, you can see the whole thing HERE!
This year I’ve decided to go a different route………
……..blues, reds and tans!!!
This is normally not my typical color scheme but I decided it was time to expand my horizons and step out of my comfort zone…..try something new!
It all started with this set of pillows I found at the thrift store for $5 for the set!
I love the embroidery work on the flowers!!!!
Next, I started scouring Ebay (one of my favorite pastimes!) for pillow covers to coordinate!
I found this set from Pottery Barn for $20/set and loved the contrast of the stripes with the floral and checks on the other pillows.
I also picked up this fabric at Hobby Lobby on sale for $4 a yard. Since it is upholstery fabric and very wide, I only needed one yard!
I love the herringbone pattern!!!!
I’ll use this to cover the top of my basket and to make pillow covers for the small pillows on the rocking chairs.
A new bamboo rug is also in the works.
Remember my “bee” stenciled rug from last year?
I haven’t decided what to do this year……any suggestions??
Finally, I’m thinking I’m going to paint my urns in a creamy white chalk paint. As much as I have loved them painted black, I think it’s time for a change. I’m hoping the white will really make my faux greenery orbs “pop”!
So, now the fun begins!!!
I’ll reveal when it’s all put together! How about you? Are you getting your home all ready for summer??
Until next time………
