Spring is right around the corner, which means temps are rising, and we can finally enjoy more time outdoors!  It is also a great time to refresh some of those outdoor spaces that could use a little TLC.  I recently decorated a client’s home that wanted a little “refresh” of her porch décor.  She runs a business from home where clients often pick up packages from her front porch, so she wanted a cute, inviting space!  In my experience, outdoor décor just doesn’t last long against the elements, so I hate to break the bank on pieces I won’t keep longer than a season or two!  Here’s her budget-friendly porch makeover:

BEFORE:

AFTER:

Bench//Striped pillows//Solid Gray Pillows//Outdoor Runner (in-store only)

Watering Can//Plant Pots//Wooden Crate-Home Goods, similar here//Grey Vase Set

Mailbox//Light Fixture

Just some simple touches to make this space more welcoming!  To make pillows last longer, I also always spray them with scotch guard!  It has saved many, many pillows, rugs and chairs at my house from becoming victim to my toddlers and their constant spills!

I love Spring because everything feels fresh and new!  Thanks for stopping by and here’s hoping we can all enjoy some sunny time outdoors soon!
